“I so did not see any of the twists in this one coming.” From Proud Book Nerd in the review for Love is Murder and my story, The Honeymoon. Cool!
I confess that I wasn’t always a fan of the short story; once I got to know characters I wanted to spend TIME with them. But with age brings wisdom (not that I’m old enough to be that wise) and I’ve developed a love for the shorter format. And I’m so psyched to be part of the Love Is Murder anthology edited by the awesome Sandra Brown and being published (soon!) by Mira.
To whet your appetite, here’s the book trailer, just recently released:
HARLEQUIN & The International Thriller Writers, Inc are proud to present the EXCLUSIVE REVEAL of The Thriller 3: Love is Murder Official Book Trailer! Prepare for heart-racing suspense in this original collection by thirty of the hottest bestselling authors and new voices writing romance suspense today.
The truth is, that although I’ve always considered myself a novelist, I’ve had a great time writing the few shorts that I’ve done, including The Honeymoon in Love is Murder and The Demon You Know, which I blogged about yesterday. I also wrote Dead Friends and Other Dating Dilemmas, which is included in the This is Chick-Lit anthology.
I hope you check out Love is Murder — be sure to let me know what you think. And if you like short stories too, I’m working on a whole buncha ‘em for my The Trouble With Demons anthology…coming soon!
