Boy, I really need to pay more attention to the old blog. *g*
Besides tidying up the place tonight (take a look at the Coming Soon! page for an exciting announcement), I have a new release to announce!
I’m thrilled to be a part of the Fever anthology edited by M. Rode. The entire collection’s available starting at $6.99, or you can buy my story Two Buckets and a Snakeskin Suit individually starting at $2.49.
Here’s an excerpt:
It took a minute, but he managed to push himself upright. Another cheer went up from the crowd. The last time Marcus had gotten a cheer just from sitting up had been when he played football in high school. He’d gotten his bell rung more than a few times trying to stretch a short gain into a touchdown. Come to think of it, back then he’d felt pretty much the way he did now. Only he hadn’t played football since before law school. So how had he gotten hurt?
Right about then, Marcus caught sight of a hairy leg.
A very tall, skinny, hairy leg that was entirely too close to him for Marcus’s liking.
Marcus tilted his head back, ignoring the throbbing at the back of his skull, and looked up. And kept looking up and up and up until the ugliest animal he’d ever seen in his life craned its long neck around and looked back at him with an annoyed but self-satisfied expression on its hairy face.
It all came back to Marcus in a rush.
“It’ll be fun,” his sister had said. “Look on it as an adventure.”
Right. He was going to kill her. That was all there was to it.
Marcus turned back to the good-looking cowboy and pointed at the world’s ugliest animal. “Did I really just try to ride a camel?” he asked.
