Surviving Hector: a short story

In the next few weeks–I haven’t decided on a date yet–I will be rolling out a new short story, called Surviving Hector.  It will be available as an e-book on the Kindle.  (I don’t have an easy way to do this on Nook or Kobo or iBooks right now, but if there is a large enough demand I will pursue.)  Today I am proud to debut the cover, which was designed by Kimberly Killion of Hot Damn Designsand I think she did a fine job.



“You can call me Hector. Nobody else does, and I only thought of it three seconds ago, so you will not find anything about me by knowing this. It’s better than you with the gun, however.”

Before leaving work for the weekend, Anita’s boss gave her a file for safekeeping. Now the killer sitting in her bedroom wants the file, and is willing to kill Anita and her wounded, unconscious husband if he doesn’t get it. But if she hands it over, he might kill them anyway.

Alone, unarmed and dressed for bed, can Anita save her husband and herself? Can she survive Hector?

Buying books

Have you taken advantage of the Sapphire Blue discount?  It’s on sale for $0.99 for only a limited time.

What is not limited is the new pricing for Immortal, Hellenic Immortal and Fixer, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go pick up copies and tell everyone you know about them.  You should still do that.  Like, now.
