Free Fiction Monday: Mr. Alibi

The only person in Los Angeles who doesn’t want fame, no-nonsense private eye Belinda Sweet avoids cases that bring her attention. Still, she stumbles on one in a bar, when a barfly asks her to act as his alibi for killing his wife. The bartender calls the cops, who arrest—and then release—the barfly. Sweet needs to know why. She’s lived in LA long enough to recognize an actor when she sees one. And she refuses to stop until she uncovers the real story—even if fame inevitably follows.

“Mr. Alibi” by USA Today bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch is available for $3.99 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, and in other e-bookstores.2940016136974_p0_v1_s260x420

    I love your short fiction! Most authors excel at one style, but you seem to cover them all with equal skill. Thanks for making some of it available on your site.

A New Urban Fantasy Story!

Primitive Area UA cover web

I love taking part in the Uncollected Anthology of Urban Fantasy. Every quarter, we put out individual stories on the same theme (hence "anthology" and "uncollected"). This time, Dayle Dermatis, Leah Cutter, Ron Collins, Leslie Claire Walker, Rebecca Senese, and Annie Reed, have joined me in the Out of the Woods "anthology."
