I actually expected the next new release announcement to be for the next two (yes, you read that correctly) installments in the Shattered Empire series.
But instead I did another eight hour fiction challenge and wrote a short mystery (and yes, this time it is a proper mystery according to narrower US genre classification) called The Cork and the Bottle.
Over at the Pegasus Pulp blog, I have a more detailed post about how I came to write the story. But for now, enjoy:
The Cork and the Bottle
When the landlord of The Cork and the Bottle ends up dead in a puddle of blood on the floor of his own pub, the case seems clear. The teen burglars who broke into the pub to steal the contents of the till are the culprits.
But there are things about the case that just don’t add up. And eventually, Detective Inspector Helen Shepherd begins to suspect that the killers are to be found much closer to home…
