A winner! (sort of)

The results are in for the Twist of Noir short story contest is in and I won - kind of. The panel of judges were deadlocked so Christopher flipped a coin. I came out in 2nd place. It is an honor to even be in the top 3, or top 10 for that matter. Check out the winning stories. Both great. It is nice to finally see this one published. 
I need to get back on the keys and start writing again after my grueling time doing two jobs. I've had some progress on the novels. People seem interested. What will come of it, who knows? 
Keeping it quiet but...fingers crossed.

My favorite story

The long awaited publication of the new issue of Thuglit just hit the cyber-newsstands. These folks can really pick a gritty and hard boiled crime story to I am honored to be included with my story 'Ditch'. This one is a personal favorite of mine. Some may hate it due to the structure which may seem like a gimmick but I sure do like it. Judge for yourself here.
Really hope you dig it.
I'm midway into my first Wade Miller novel and I am really liking it so far. It's from 1952 and it feels "vintage" if you know what I mean. Wish I had more time to read and my Dad just left Beat The Reaper with me on his recent visit so I'm eager to get to that one too. So many books....
