“SETUP ON FRONT STREET”

Now seems like a pretty good time to have another look at Setup On Front Street, the first novel in my Key West Nocturnes series. A pretty good noir tale, if I do say so myself. It happens to be available as an ebook, paperback, and audiobook. Go here to check it out. Here’s the opening: […]

LET’S REVISIT “BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE EYES”

This 2012 short story is a nifty little slice of Las Vegas noir, a variation on a familiar theme. I reread it this morning and I have to say I think it’s a damned good story, if I do say so myself. Here’s the opening. See what you think. Oh, they were a deep blue, […]

“DETOUR”, THE NOVEL

If you’re familiar with the 1945 film noir classic, DETOUR, check out the novel on which it was based. Written by Martin M Goldsmith in 1939, the novel is every bit as good as the film. There are several editions of this book on Amazon right now, but the others are poorly edited and formatted. […]

NEW AUDIO VERSION OF “SETUP ON FRONT STREET”

At long last, a new, improved audiobook version of Setup On Front Street is now available. The old version, much as I hate to admit it, didn’t sound very good, mostly because I was still struggling with my recording equipment, trying to coax the best possible sound out of it. Well, it wasn’t working, so I […]

REVIEW: “BORDERLINE”

Imagine several cars plowing full speed ahead from all different directions toward a common intersection. Only now imagine that, instead of going in straight lines toward the center, their routes are long and curvy, allowing some of them to pass each other like ships in the night. In some cases, they even ride two abreast […]

NOIR CLASSICS GO LIVE AS AUDIOBOOKS

I’ve had a bunch of new audiobook narrations bottled up with publishers and at Amazon for awhile now, but they’re finally shaking loose. The first two came out today. Sharecropper Hell, written by Jim Thompson and The Secret Squad, written by David Goodis are now live on Audible.com. Published by the folks at Chalk Line Books, these […]

“FULLY LOADED” REACHES NEW HEIGHTS!!

Yes, we knew it would happen sooner or later. Fully Loaded, my gripping noir short story set in a Mississippi used car lot in 1984, is finally breaking out of the pack. As of this writing, it has raced all the way up to #679,067 in the Amazon rankings. Based on this groundswell of sales, I’m […]

“THE TAKE” IS RE-RELEASED

Back in 2009, a small traditional press picked up my standalone noir novel, The Take, and published it. It was my first time, so you can imagine I was pretty stoked. I was going to be published! You get the idea. Well, reality soon set in. I hated the cover, I was forced to make some […]

THE DEAL OF THE YEAR, AND IT’S ONLY JUNE

I usually don’t shill for corporate interests, but this is one time I’m making an exception. Prologue Books, which has rereleased the works of many of the great noir/pulp writers of the past, is running a special on Amazon Kindle, selling all of their titles for 99¢ each. I’m talking about Gil Brewer, Dan J […]

I recently did an interview with Michael Tucker concerning Setup On Front Street, the first novel in my Key West Nocturnes series. He asked some pretty good questions and on top of that, he’s got a great site. You can check it out here.
