Bridge of Tarnished Angels
Bridge of Tarnished Angels, just launched minutes ago on Kindle for only $2.99.
I've been feverishly working on this 36,000+ word title for the last 5-6 weeks or since before Election Day (Not bad, considering that for the most part I've been keeping fresh content on this index page at the same time, while still taking care of my duties in the real world).
They feature Tatterdemalion hero Scott Carson in a spooky, supernatural Christmas tale called, "A Ghost For Christmas." It started out as a page and a half of material I'd been forced to excise from the first draft of Tatterdemalion. Then when I got the idea to write some Christmas short stories in time for the holidays, I knew I wanted to write another one featuring Carson but didn't have any ideas. Then I remembered that material I'd removed back in 2014 and decided it would be the basis for a good Christmas story. So I expanded it, wrapped a murder mystery around it and, voila, "A Ghost For Christmas" was born.
As stated in my last post, the other story features Joe Roman, a series character who was actually conceived before Carson then got shoved to the wayside when Tatterdemalion got into full swing in 2013. This one takes place in present day Brighton Beach, Roman's adopted hometown. It involves the unwitting kidnapping of a Russian girl involving two crime families and all on Christmas Eve when all Roman wants to do is find a good home for his German Shepherd puppy Gawky.
And, serving almost as a separate character, is the Brooklyn Bridge, uniting both stories.
At 36,200+ words, these brand new stories at $2.99 is quite a bargain. Don't be fooled by the brief amount of time I'd spent on them. I'd gotten this idea late in the year but I worked on them nearly nonstop and, indeed, I put a lot of work into the writing as well as the research.
So consider picking up a copy. And, well before Christmas, the paperback version, which features a different cover, will go on sale for just $3.99.
