See Also Murder: The Beginning

Santa came early.  Seventh Street Books, an imprint of Prometheus Books, has bought my mystery novel, SEE ALSO MURDER.  This book is based on my 2007 Derringer-nominated short story of the same title, and will see publication as a trade paperback in the spring/summer of 2015.  Agent Awesome never gave up on this book, on this idea, as it combines the two things I love the most: writing and indexing. 

Set in 1963 North Dakota, the novel features freelance indexer, Marjorie Trumaine, who is asked to help solve the brutal murder of her friends and neighbors.  Add in a dash of Norse mythology, some tough publishing deadlines, a western landscape, and a character with an organized mind and very few filters on her mouth...and, well, that's just the start of it. 

I'm really happy about this, and no this does not mean I am abandoning westerns OR indexing.  Nothing changes.  More to come as things progress...
