As I mentioned on Tuesday, we’re doing a short Kickstarter that features six original pieces of short crime fiction. We called the Kickstarter Never Before Seen because those of you who back the Kickstarter will be the first to see these new pieces. So now, I’ll do a short series on what each one is.
Today’s features my favorite, “The Viral Video Guy.” I loved writing this story. It’s set in the neighborhood I live in here in Las Vegas, right near the Regional Justice Center. I never know what my stories—short or long—will do when I start them. This one surprised me a lot, and pleased me even more. I hope you all like it. It’s a novella. Here’s the blurb:
The Viral Video Guy
Law firms expect their lawyers to represent paying clients. So, when Bryce Bowson refuses to represent a wealthy client’s daughter who faces a murder charge, Bryce stands to lose everything. Bryce knows what losing everything feels like. Will he survive starting over yet again?
Yesterday, the Kickstarter hit its first stretch goal. That means all backers will get this story, five other crime stories, and a ten-story collection of my award-winning and award-nominated short fiction. There are a lot of other goodies in this Kickstarter, including writing workshops and my standalone crime novels, which most of you have not seen. So head on over and take a look—if only so you can read about the viral video guy.
