THE STEREOTYPE WORE BLACK: AVOIDING CLICHES THAT STAIN YOUR PULP AND NOIR MYSTERIES!


I join authors Tommy Hancock, Derrick Ferguson, Ron Fortier, and Nikki Nelson-Hicks on Sean Taylor's Bad Girls, Good Guys, and Two-Fisted Action blog for THE STEREOTYPE WORE BLACK: AVOIDING THE CLICHES THAT STAIN YOUR PULP AND NOIR MYSTERIES. We talk all about cliches and how to avoid them in your writing.

You can read the full blog post here.

From the site:
Sure, we all know that good pulp and Noir fiction (like any good genre fiction) is built on the recurring types of characters that inhabit the classic stories. But how do authors avoid complete stereotypes and cliches while being true to the tropes that are
necessary for good pulp and Noir?
 

To find out, I went to a few hand-picked authors I really respect who handled their fiction deftly and with originality among the tropes.

Thanks for inviting me along for the fun, Sean.
