The Backyard Burger Murder

I’m sure you all have more important things to remember than me talking about the projects I’m working on, but in case you have an exceptionally good memory: Remember that short story I’ve been talking about for a couple months?

It’s finally done!

And the best part is, it’s free for download! That’s right, I’m giving my writing away for free because I love you guys. Plus, it’s a fun story and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

Here’s a synopsis of what it’s about:

When a woman falls critically ill during his barbecue (which is a nice way of saying she pukes all over his floor right in the middle of the party), John writes the whole thing off as simple bad luck and leaves it at that. When he learns that she’s been poisoned, he decides to solve the attempted murder in a desperate attempt to get his rich neighbors to give him money.

Maybe it’s just because he’s bored, or maybe it’s because attempting to solve an attempted murder beats going door to door asking for handouts. Either way, he’s going to get the job done. Even if what he finds turns everything he’s taken for granted on its head.
