68 Kill on Kindle

My new novel 68 Kill is now available on Kindle:

A Nook edition is forthcoming.  A paperback edition will be available on Amazon in a few days.  For those who don't want to wait, it's already available via the CreateSpace store:

A bit of background on 68 Kill, since I haven't really talked about it here. A good 90% of my reading the last several years has been pulp crime fiction from the 40's and 50's. Some of those guys would churn out a ton of product, a few of them knocking out a novel a month. I have decided to emulate the old pulp writers by attempting to produce a new short novel every few months. 68 Kill is the first of these books. My plan is for them all to be between 50,000 and 60,000 words in length, though 68 Kill actually came in at a bit over 61,000 words. I also intend to make every title in this series available in paperback for that group of readers who still prefer that format.

just finished reading DEPRAVED. LOVED it so much. I'm getting ready to read DARK ONES. Hope it's as good. I really enjoy your work. Thanks for entertaining me : )

Those old "Gold Medal" writers like Harry Whittington and Gil Brewer wrote like their chairs were on fire, often at the expense of their own health. Looking forward to reading 68 Kill. Thanks for the insight.

Gil Brewer is one my favorites from that era. I've read a bunch of his, including just last week The Bitch. And the same feverish production pitch that possessed those guys is what I'm hoping to emulate.
