Pulp Ink is here!

The anthology Pulp Ink has arrived. I'm very excited to be included in this collection of short stories inspired by the names of music tracks off the soundtrack from the film Pulp Fiction. Everyone has such a unique take on their inspiration title. And who are those everyones? Just look at this lineup:
Allan Guthrie
Reed Farrel Coleman
Gary Phillips
Hilary Davidson
Matthew C. Funk
Paul D. Brazill
AJ Hayes
Michael J. Solender
Richard Godwin
Naomi Johnson
Jimmy Callaway
Sandra Seamans
Patti Abbott
Jodi MacArthur
David Cranmer
Chris F. Holm
Jason Duke
Eric Beetner
Ian Ayris
Kate Horsley
Matt Lavin
Jim Harrington
Nigel Bird
Chris Rhatigan

Yeah, that's my name in there with so many great writers. Everyone is at the top of their game too. Anthology masterminds Nigel Bird and Chris Rhatigan have really collected one of the strongest lineups I've ever seen. Hope you like my story, but really I had an unfair advantage. Of all the titles on the soundtrack, I was handed "Zed's Dead Baby" How could I not be inspired?

This starts the late sumer of anthologies for me. Soon will see the release of D*cked and then Grimm Tales drops in Sept. All three of these are collections I am so proud and flattered to be a part of.

In other news I should have written about sooner but acts as excuse for why I didn't: I'm blogging now for Criminal Element. I've had a few pieces up already and I'm working on more.  It's great to be a part of that community and a really great site for all things crime and mystery fiction. I'll do better to post links like HERE , HERE and HERE .

ZED'S DEAD, BABY is a great, great story. I'd have killed Zed myself if I could have written that one.

Yeah, it's definitely a winner. So glad to have one of your excellent stories as part of Pulp Ink and will be on the lookout for those other two anthos.
