Do you want to be a murder suspect? Maybe even a murderer?


...at least in fiction.

I'm finishing up my first Julius Katz novel, tentatively titled 'Julius Katz & Archie', and I'm going to run a contest to have one of the book's murder suspects (or possibly even the murderer) named after the winner. The cost to enter is free. All you have to do is read my award-winning novella, 'Julius Katz' and enter a comment (or scribble) up on scribd.com. If 100 or more comments are left by Aug. 12th, one of these will be picked at random, and the winner (if they choose to be) will have one of my murder suspects named after him or her.

About Scribd.com--it's free and easy to join. It took me all of one minute to sign up so I could put 'Julius Katz' up there as a free PDF. And why Aug. 12th? As a bizarre fluke, I've got two books being released that day--'The Caretaker of Lorne Field' is being published by Overlook Press in the US, and Outsourced by Serpent's Tail in the UK, so I figured that's as good a day as any.

So how do you read 'Julius Katz'? Simple, click on the below link to read online. And if you join Scribd, you can then download the PDF, and later after reading you can go back and leave a comment, or scribble as they call it.
