Here's why this blog is late


Big News! My Austin writing group, called—appropriately enough—Austin Mystery Writers, had our very first short story anthology published this month! We've been celebrating in our giddy excitement. Here’s a bit about it:

The eleven stories in Murder on Wheels put the pedal to the floor and never let up! Whether by bus, car, tractor, or bike, you'll be carried along at a breakneck pace by the talented Austin Mystery Writers. These eight authors transport you from an eighteenth-century sailing ship to the open roads of modern Texas, from Alice's Wonderland to a schoolbus yard in the suburbs of Dallas. Grab your book, hold on to your hat, and come along for the ride!
Included are:
A NICE SET OF WHEELS, by Kathy Waller
FAMILY BUSINESS, by Reavis Z. Wortham
ROTA FORTUNAE, by V. P. Chandler
MOME RATH, MY SWEET, by Gale Albright
THE WHEELS ON THE BUS GO ROUND AND ROUND, by Kaye George
BUON VIAGGIO, by Laura Oles
APORKALYPSE NOW, by Gale Albright
HAVE A NICE TRIP, by Kaye George
DEAD MAN ON A SCHOOL BUS, by Earl Staggs
HELL ON WHEELS, by Kathy Waller
RED’S WHITE F-150 BLUES, by Scott Montgomery

All of the included writers are Texans and I’m an Ex, still an honorary member of the writing group. Reavis and Earl were invited to give us extra class and they came through like the pros they both are. We’re thrilled that Wildside has published this and that it will be available at Malice Domestic in May! Meanwhile you can order copies in at least these places, probably more:

And now, the REAL reason I’m late this week: I’m blaming everything on taxes.

I'm sorry about the taxes. But I'm happy about Murder on Wheels. Exceedingly.
