No, not a conundrum to ask the question: When is a hot new release not a hot new release?
Read on if you would like a review copy of this amazing collection of short stories.
Our wonderful team of authors who contributed to the murder mystery short stories anthology have been massively supportive especially after we encountered some teething problems.
Those of you with eagle eyes will have spotted what the problem was. There is a lot I could say and write about it but it’s best left as it is.
So, it’s still hot and it’s still a new release but with revisions forced upon us.
Indeed, the issue has improved the book immeasurably with now over twenty original stories of the highest quality from ten different authors including posthumous contributions from an old friend of mine – ‘G.’ That was the name he always wrote under.
For ‘G’s’ full life story, you will have to read the book. I know you won’t be disappointed with that or his short stories.
The teething problems, as I politely call them, lead to revising not only the content of the book, but additionally the cover, and all marketing materials.
The whole team were right behind me but none more so than Robbie Cheadle and Kelly Artieri who produced all the revised marketing materials. Thank you all!
One benefit of this kerfuffle is readers will be able to avail the special low pre-order price of 0.99 cents and pence until July 14, 2019, a week later than originally planned.
Kindle release is still July 7 and all other bookstores July 14.
The paperback will also be released soon.

New Revised Book Description
Who knew death could be so eclectic?
Relish this mesmerizing murder mystery mash-up of short stories.
Murder and mystery have been the staple of literature and films for years. This anthology of short stories will thrill and entertain you. Some will also make you laugh out loud. Others will stop and make you think.
Think of this murder mystery short story anthology as a book version of appetisers or starters, hors d’oeuvre, meze, or antipasti. It can be read as fillers between books or, as is the case in some countries, as a bookish meze – in its own right.
There’s murder mystery styles and locations to suit all tastes: detective fiction, serial killers, scifi, histfic, LA, San Francisco, England, The Great Lakes, Las Vegas, the Nevada desert, Mexico and more in an exquisite exposition of the art of short story telling.
These stories come from an international cast of authors; some with bestselling books, others are emerging or new talents. Their roots, cultures, and life experiences are as diverse as their writing styles.
But one thing binds them together: they know how to tell a story.
The ten authors who have contributed to the anthology are:
L. Lee Kane
Posthumously by ‘G’
The stories include the 2019 SIA Award-Winning Murder Mystery Short Story ‘The Rose Slayer’ by Stephen Bentley.
Each author introduces his or her stories and the theme that lays behind them. By the time you finish the book, you will agree the result is a mesmerising murder mystery mash-up.
Get it now.
