Contract Killer

I just got my first publishing contract in the mail today, so I guess I can spill the beans.

My short story MURDER BOY, that was originally published in THUGLIT, will appear in THE BEST OF THUGLIT-VOLUME 1 anthology to be published next Spring by Kensington books. I know many of my favorite Thugs will be included in the anthology, including Mr. MFA himself, Steve Allen, along with new stories from authors who may or may not be Ken Bruen.

The smile on my face right now is set to Deliriously Giddy and my jaw is starting to hurt so I should get back to work. But I want to thank Big Daddy Thug Todd Robinson for selecting the story initially for THUGLIT, and then being dope enough to pick it for this anthology as well. Dave White, Sarah Weinman, and Patti Abbott all helped me hack the originally unruly story into publishable shape.

First anthologies, then the world…
