Small Crimes contest

I received my author's copies of Small Crimes today. The book will be out in the UK March 20th, and in the US later in the Fall. Can't tell you how pleased I am to have this book published by Serpent's Tail.

I thought I'd make 3 copies of Small Crimes available to fans of my second book, Bad Thoughts. So here's the deal--act as a Hollywood casting agent and email me at how you'd cast the major players of Bad Thoughts. Please send me your choices by March 30th, and on April 1st I'll announce the 3 winners (as well as their casting selections), and send off to each a signed copy of Small Crimes.

A Long Time to Die podcast

Alan Vogel, who has a radio show in Northampton MA, recently read my first published short story, A Long Time to Die (New Mystery Magazine '92), over the air. Somewhere along the way, a bit of confusion caused the title for his version to change to "A Long to Die"--but still, it's all very cool, and Alan did a nice job reading it. Here's a link to the podcast for anyone in the mood to listen to a hardboiled crime story about a mob heist and all the double (and triple) crosses along the way.

Small Crimes--an early look

My publisher, Serpent's Tail, has put the first chapter of Small Crimes on their web-site.
