You can read the first page of Quint Mitchell’s first adventure, a short story titled, Blue Crabs at Midnight. It’s a strange title, I know, but it all becomes clear in the first few paragraphs. Blue Crabs takes readers back some twenty-five years to a time when young Quint is vacationing in South Florida with his family. There he falls in with a group of boys who together learn that life can be both dangerous and unpredictable. Blue Crabs at Midnight s now a Kindle short story priced at only $1.99.
And speaking of short stories, I’m also working on a collection of Parker Francis short stories. The collection’s title is So Dark as One’s Own Heart, which is taken from the Nathaniel Hawthorne quote, “What other dungeon is so dark as one’s own heart! What jailer so inexorable as one’s self?” The collection will include a range of surprising tales designed to keep you guessing — and maybe sleeping with the lights on for a few nights. If you enjoy Stephen King, then this collection is for you.
While you’re waiting for more Parker Francis offerings, pick up your copy Matanzas Bay and read it again. It’s still only $2.99 on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, and in the iTunes iBookstore, which can be accessed through your iPad app.
