So there’s this collection of noir short stories I wrote—dark fiction–someone said. The collection is called Mary of the Chance Encounters. It was supposed to be published by a tiny press out of Sacramento–but that fell through. (Yay! That’s a good thing–always best to be on board a project where all people involved believe in it.

I don’t know at this point whether the manuscript will see its way through to a publisher or not. But in the meantime Wretched Productions is doing a sweet little audio book of 7 or 8 of the stories. Yay! Again!IMG_7818 Here’s Heidi Moore the director lady of Wretched Productions on audio recording Saturday! Thanks Heidi!IMG_7806Meanwhile if you know someone who wants to do a print version of a kick ass weirdo short story collection let me know. We hope to have the audio book out this fall.

By the way! It’s weird reading stories aloud sometimes….12744148_1717428955136632_3551798862349943481_n
