MY NEWEST RELEASES

The Dame Did It cover

From the publisher's description:

A death rattle echoes down a shadowy alley…. 
Guns blaze like exploding suns in the dead of night… 
And make no mistake about who’s responsible…. 
The Dame Did It! 

Pro Se Productions presents a collection of new stories wrapped in the shadows of Noir and definitely Hard Boiled with a feminine touch. Authors Joel Jenkins, Christofer Nigro, Shannon Muir, and Percival Constantine deliver two-fisted, gun shooting hard core action in these blood-soaked pages, and each tale revolves around a woman. A heroine desperate to save the day, a villainess hungry to destroy, or someone trapped in the middle. All and
more will be found in The Dame Did It! 

Includes my story, "Tragic Like a Torch Song".

Available now for Kindle, Smashwords, and in print.

Super Hero Monster Hunter cover

From the publisher's description:

It’s out there, hunting in the darkness and no one can stop it. Its tally of victims increases every day the sun rises and when dusk falls, fear pumps through the city’s veins.

It’s in the sky above the buildings, stalking the forests of the parks and slithering through the sewers. The situation is dire and hope is dwindling… It’s too fast, too strong and too smart.

A sudden flash burns across the night sky and figure appears; somebody like us, but not like us. As quickly as it appeared, the figure is gone, searching for the thing, ready to deliver justice. Hope has returned and smiles crack the corners of mouths, because everybody recognizes a superhero and we all know what comes next.

Epic battles will rage, city blocks will be trampled and the Earth will hang in the balance as the ultimate evil is answered by the ultimate good. Who will triumph, nobody knows and the only thing for certain is that they will fight THE GOOD FIGHT!

Includes my story, "Meeting the Monster".

Available now for Kindle.

COMING SOON

I have other short stories pending with Pro Se Press... more information as I can get it to you.
