If you're subscribed to my newsletter, then you know this, but I'm very proud of my story in this anthology, Tempest For A Tea Cup. It's frothier and lighter than most of my stories, and stars two fisted, hard drinking private dick Jake Falconer, and his on-again, off-again (but now on) boyfriend, Officer Kyle Gomez, supposedly the soberest and most uncorrupted cop in all of Echo City. If you read my novella The Little Death, you'll recognize them, but you don't need to have done so to get this story. It's not a sequel, just a parallel story.

And to tease it a little more, I'll give you a little sample of the story:

As a private detective, I was used to pretty trouble stumbling through my door. But adorable trouble? That was new.

The young man before me was not adorable. Oh, he wasn’t bad, if you went in for the metrosexual

twink type in a designer leather jacket and way-too-tight skinny jeans, but his nose was too small and his eyes too glazed to be of any interest to me. Well, maybe if I was really hammered and really desperate. In other words, probably next Tuesday after closing time. “Are you Jake Falconer?” the boy asked, sniffing and wiping tears away from his pale blue eyes.

“That’s what it says on the door.”

He rubbed a Kleenex under his nose, sniffed, and said, “I need to hire you to find someone. Can you do that?”

My first impulse was to say “No, despite it saying ‘Private Investigations’ on my door, I sell cheese.” But I needed the money, so I swallowed it down and nodded. “I can, within reason. Who’s missing?”

“Princess,” he said, collapsing into the old wooden chair in front of my desk.

“A princess?”

“No, Princess,” he said, thrusting out the screen of a smartphone towards me. “My Morkie.”


Here's the handy dandy buy link, if you're at all intrigued: Closet Capers

This is my story in the Make A Play anthology.
Thunderballs - Luke Diaz signs up for an adult dodgeball league out of morbid curiosity and a love for a crazy movie. After all, sports aren’t his thing. Then attraction to the team captain, Shane Kinrade, keeps him from ducking out of tryouts, and Luke discovers he’s actually rather good at hitting where he aims. Along with his newfound ability, Luke considers the charming team captain to be right up his alley and luckily, Shane shares his interest.

You may know that I have a lot of releases coming up. The next Josh of the Damned book, the next Infected book, a short story in the Closet Capers anthology, and those are just the ones coming in the next month or two. I’d like to give away some books, but blogs and the usual methods are kind of disappointing, and can often end up going to the same handful of people. Which I don’t mind per se, but I’d like to make sure the books get into the hands of those who really want to read them.

Therefore, I’ll be giving away copies of these to random subscribers to my newsletter. I don’t send them out often, just when there’s some news worth sharing. You won’t get spammed. Here’s the link if you want to get on board: (Please keep in mind, though, when I hold a giveaway, I’ll expect you to email me. So you’ll have to open the newsletter to put your name in the hat. No one likes to feel like they’re talking to an empty room, you know.)
