New DC mystery novel published as e-book

I just recently published my first full length work of fiction as an e-book. Color Me Dead is about a DC-based private detective, Al Pennyback, who gets caught up in a major criminal conspiracy in the course of investigating the shooting death of a Washington teen. Al, a retired army officer, is something of a loner, and not your average detective - he does not, for instance, carry a weapon. Unlike many stories with DC as a setting, there are no political conspiracies here, just a look… Continue

The Eye of the Beholder (28)

“Please answer, please, please,” Tabitha prayed as she heard the phone ring. She was on Preston’s cell, pacing back and forth outside the operating room, hoping the number he’d programmed in wasn’t Cary’s business line.



“Hello?” a sleepy voice finally answered.



“Is this Cary, Preston’s friend?”



“Yes.” The voice was suddenly alert. “Who’s this? Oh hell. What’s wrong, why are you calling and not him?”



“Pres was shot.” She took a deep, gasping breath.… Continue

SLOGGING THROUGH BLOGS

by Sunny Frazier



I'm late to the blogging game. The first blogs I read seemed to be a waste of time. Personal info on what other people are doing doesn't interest me. I wondered why writers spent time with this format and who the heck has time to read it?

Ouch. There's no frick'en way. . . .

Just read the requirements the Mystery Writers of America require for a publisher to be accepted and placed on their offical list. Now, interestingly enough, I can see somewhat the logic behind their actions. They want quality. Yeah, so do I.

But their stiff demands concerning payments to authors and book runs just about elminates 95% of the small publishers in this country. And that's unfair. There's lots of good writing going on thru a number of small houses. They'll never…
