My latest literary effort is now an ebook, available on Amazon’s Kindle store, as well as Smashwords.Â It’s a collection of short stories called Bloodstains On The Wall. The collection consists of three stories, all from different corners of the world of noir. Here’s a brief description of each:
1. FULLY LOADED It’s 1984 and Biloxi, Mississippi has seen better days. Sherry Lamar, used car saleswoman extraordinaire, is feeling the pinch. Then one day, a stranger walks onto her small car lot and ushers her into a world of steamy sex and murder.
2. THE DEVIL DRIVES A BIG MERCEDES A seven-year-old boy is playing with his two younger sisters when a minor accident occurs. One of the sisters is to blame, but she blames the boy and their mother believes her, punishing the boy. This starts him on a downward spiral into self-doubt and later, depravity, that will last his entire life.
3. BLOCK A famous crime fiction novelist thinks the current book she’s working on will revive her sagging fortunes. Halfway through it, however, she develops writer’s block and is unable to continue her story, until a mysterious early-morning phone caller claims to have the answers.
In two of the three stories, the central character is a woman. I didn’t plan it that way, but that’s how they spoke to me.
The entire collection of three stories is available now on Amazon for, get this, only 99Â¢. How can you not order one?
