This week’s installment features two giveaways—of sorts. First, I’m giving away a signed copy of Death in Nostalgia City. All you have to do is register on Goodreads.com. Here’s a link to the contest: https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/112192-death-in-nostalgia-city
The deadline is midnight, Saturday, Oct. 18.
The second gift today is a 100-word flash fiction story from my ebook (available on Amazon, etc.), Cops, Crooks & Other Stories in 100 Words.
Lionel’s New Game
Gazing across the resort pool, nattily dressed Lionel spotted a familiar face. “Say Jake, didn’t I hear bad news about you last year?”
“No big deal. So, what con are you running in this ritzy place? You doing your old investment scheme or romancing some rich widow?”
“Alas, nothing with finesse. I’m working with a bellman. We go through rooms when guests are gone. “Sad, huh? What do you think?”
“I think you’re going to do jail time.”
“What? Wait! I remember. You were caught!”
“Yup. Red-handed. This very hotel. So I agreed–reluctantly mind you–to work for them.”
