So pleased that editor, Margaret Lucke, liked the story and had very few edits suggested to our 5k word story, True Culprit. The book should be out by February 2019.
True Culprit: After a small tremor smashes a ceramic sculpture that was made by his now deceased aunt, Tru James discovers the piece harbored dubious contents inside. He gets to the bottom of what went on in Marin County back in the 1970s.
So happy to announce our 5k-word short story True Culprit was accepted to the Sisters in Crime, Northern California Chapter’s first Anthology! Faultlines will be published some time next year.
Such a great prompt, FAULTLINES. We wrote two stories about Tru. Fingers crossed. If you are a member of the Nor-Cal chapter you can submit a short story for consideration of inclusion in the upcoming anthology. Deadline April 1, no joke!
The bane of agents (stats and quick info. on offers) but a fantastic resource for aspiring authors. It’s free.
