Free Fiction Monday: Guarding Lacey
Private detective Smokey Dalton does his best to protect his adopted family, from his 11-year-old son Jimmy to his friends, the Grimshaws. But Smokey can’t see everything. Jimmy notices that Lacey Grimshaw—“thirteen going on trouble,” Smokey says—skips school to hang out with an adult man. Jimmy doesn’t want to tattle, but he’s worried about Lacey. So he pretends he’s Smokey, and follows her, learning secrets that will change him—and Lacey—forever.
“Guarding Lacey” by Edgar-award nominee Kris Nelscott is free on this website for one week only. The story’s also available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, Omnilit, Smashwords and other ebookstores. If you want to find out how Smokey Dalton does next, pick up Street Justice, which releases in trade paper, audio, and ebook on Tuesday, March 18.
Yes. I love that Jimmy is his own person now, and gets his own stories. You go, bro.
And I see how you did that “free story to coincide with the novel release” thing. Nicely done.
I have plans for Jimmy. 🙂 Thanks, Melissa.
This is good. Real good. – So, I got The Disappeared when you put it up on sale, and I got Sacrifice in the MegaStar pack, and I’ve been curious about Smokey Dalton so here’s this one. And that makes three series and I have to decide where to start spending my money. It’s like you do this deliberately!
Who, me? 🙂 Thanks, Dave.
