I usually don't talk on this blog about pending publications, but I'm very pleased with this one so I'm going to mention it now.
My crime story, A Rhyme For the Crime, has been accepted for the latest paperback anthology from Dark Prints Press, which is on course for a February 2012 publication date. Crime writing luminary Lawrence Block is a part of this too - a major coup for the collection. Of course, it would be nice to think he is sitting at home saying: "Oh my God, that Brian G. Ross guy is in this thing!" but I'd not stake money on that.
I can't throw enough positivity the way of Craig Bezant. His tireless efforts in helping to bring short fiction to the masses will certainly not be going unnoticed by those in the trade. It's a thankless job, but he is playing the long game, and he has started off impeccably.
At 4000 words, A Rhyme For the Crime is the longest story I have had published to date, so at this rate I should have the novel out there on the shelves by the time I start to collect my pension.
Pre-orders open next week, if you're interested. And I know you are...
