I am really excited to be announcing this one. I’ve got a story forthcoming in the crime/mystery anthology, The One That Got Away, from Dark Prints Press, edited by Craig Bezant. I’m excited for several reasons. Of course, it’s always fantastic to sell a story, especially to a publisher like Dark Prints. It’s also a great concept:
Too often our crime-solving heroes do just that – solve crimes. But what about the ones who get away – the grifters who con and don’t get caught, the criminals who play cat-and-mouse games with the law only to disappear into the unknown? What goes through their minds, or the minds of their victims and pursuers? What legends do they leave behind, both inspirational and terrifying?
Pretty cool, huh? But I’m mostly excited by the other fantastic authors I’ll be sharing this anthology with:
