Unloaded: Crime Writers Writing Without Guns

Have you tried writing with a gun? It’s clumsy, and sometimes you shoot off your dangling participle. Jokes aside, Eric Beetner challenged a bunch of us to write a crime story without using guns. And look who stepped up:


Besides my latest Denny the Dent story “The Final Encore of Moody Joe Shaw,” you’ve got J-CO, Mr. Lansdale, Hilary Davidson, Alison Gaylin, Kelli Stanley, Reed Farrel Coleman, Holly West…
not to mention J.L. Abramo, Patricia Abbott, Trey R. Barker, Eric Beetner, Alec Cizak, Joe Clifford, Angel Luis Colón, Paul J. Garth, Kent Gowran, Rob Hart, Jeffery Hess, Grant Jerkins, S.W. Lauden, Tim O’Mara, Tom Pitts, Keith Rawson, and Ryan Sayles.
All proceeds go to States United To Prevent Gun Violence.

The Washington Post gave it a look-see, and Publisher’s Weekly gave it a review as well:

Right now it’s only available for pre-order on Kindle, but I will update the post when the print links are in. Published by the good folks at Down & Out Books.

It streets on April 18th, and we’ll be at the Mysterious Bookshop signing it in May. More on that as it comes.
