While I was on vacation, I received the First place Bullet Award from Geoff Eighinger for my story “Black-Eyed Susan,” which appeared in Powder Burn Flash. It was picked as the best crime story online in September 2011, and I’m honored to be chosen. CHECK IT OUT and read my story and the second and third place winners, both excellent stories- “Road Kill” by William Dylan Powell and “Moving Day” by Laurie Powers.
Also while I was away, Patti Nase Abbott posted “How I Came to Write This Story,” a piece I wrote about my story “A Glutton for Punishment” which appears in Beat to a Pulp. Thanks to Patti for letting me jaw about a tale that means a lot to me, on her fine blog.
