The new anthology Trouble No More: Crime Fiction Inspired by Southern Rock and the Blues is now playing at a concert venue near you! ….or, um, available for purchase from a wide range of booksellers, linked at the webpage for the collection at Down & Out Books.
Edited by Mark Westmoreland, Trouble No More features short stories by Bill Baber, C.W. Blackwell, Jerry Bloomfield, S.A. Cosby, Nikki Dolson, Michel Lee Garrett, James D.F. Hannah, Curtis Ippolito, Jessica Laine, Brodie Lowe, Bobby Mathews, Brian Panowich, Rob Pierce, Joey R. Poole, Raquel V. Reyes, Michael Farris Smith, J.B. Stevens, Chris Swann, N.B. Turner and Joseph S. Walker, and I’m proud to have my very very short story “Little Martha” in the mix as well.
At a mere 415 words, “Little Martha” was inspired by one of the shortest (the shortest?) song written by the Allman Brothers. You can read a bit more about my approach to the story here.
Pleased to be part of the book! And I’ll be hosting a couple of the contributors at the First Two Pages in coming weeks too—stay tuned for more.
