First, I have a new short story out! It’s a hard-boiled cozy called “Crumb”, in which a tough broad who opens a tea shop (naturally, there’s a cat in it–I said it’s a cozy) is invaded by a hit-man hired by her daughter’s no-good ex. “Crumb” appears in DARK THINGS II: Cat Crimes: Tales of Feline Mayhem and Murder (Volume 2). All proceeds are being donated to animal rescue charities.
SPEC THE HALLS is still available, with my story “Evergreen Gaze” in it, benefiting Heifer International.
2012 DAILY FLASH is out from Pill Hill Press, 366 daily doses of flash fiction (Leap Year edition), containing my micro story “The Perfect Boyfriend”. Also 365 stories by other people.
And The Book Trailer Showcase is open! This site will … well … showcase book trailers. Today is the Grand Opening, so pop on over and browse around. I don’t think any of my trailers or books are up there yet, but I’m in the queue.
Lots of good newses, yes?
WRITING PROMPT: Send a character to a Grand Opening. What is it the Grand Opening of? A hardware store? An opera? A death-pit?
