The Lost Children Anthology – Free

For five days, I am giving away the Lost Children Anthology for free.

Now, this may seem idiotic, to give away a charity book for free. But by studying the benefits reaped by Amazon booksellers who have given away a book for free, I believe this will help jumpstart the now tepid sales. So, even if you already own the book in print or for other formats, I urge you to click the link below and get yourself a free Kindle edition to help push us up in the sales ranks.
The U.K. edition is doing quite well, at #23 in its category, but the U.S. one needs some help.

Please share this over the next 5 days, and if you can spare me thirty seconds, get yourself a free book, click the “Like” button on Amazon beside the price, and scroll down to the “Tags” section and click “I agree with these tags.” It will help us sell books once the fire sale is over.

Once again, I appreciate your help, and thank you for your support. We’ve generated hundreds of dollars for Children 1st and PROTECT, and we can raise a lot more with a little work.

A second volume is in the works for this autumn, with some names you’ll recognize. I’m keeping them a secret for now.

U.S. edition:

Two to Tango in Spinetingler

I am honored to appear in Spinetingler Magazine’s first Kindle issue, Winter 2012. My illustrious company includes Patti Nase Abbott, Mike Miner, Court Merrigan and Albert Tucher. Spinetingler has been around for ten years online and is a Mystery Writers of America approved venue. I highly doubt “Two to Tango” will be to the MWA’s taste, but here’s hoping that a few of them read it.

It’s one of my most polarizing stories, and while the characters are all adults, the title comes from the true closing statement of a judge who gave a child rapist a soft sentence. I learned of this judge through Alice Vachss’s eye-opening book Sex Crimes: Ten Years on the Front Lines Prosecuting Rapists and Confronting Their Collaborators, where she details how difficult it is to prosecute sex offenders in the D.A.’s office. It is out of print, but I urge you to hunt it down if you think SVU is how things play out in court.

It is a revenge story, but not a straightforward one. I’d like to hear what you think. You can’t comment on a Kindle, but you can here, and in the Amazon reviews for the magazine. I’d appreciate your feedback.
