I recently provided a short story for an anthology put together by Steve Beaulieu and Todd Barselow.
And Stephen King.
If you’ve read Stephen King’s brilliant book on how to write a book you’ll find a writing exercise that he asks people to do. (He even offered to try to read them if you would submit it to him. Then he got overwhelmed.)
I did the exercise and came out with a short story. Thanks Stephen King! It’s called Final Entrance. It’s about a murderous opera singer and her victim playing a deadly game of cat and mouse. It’s about true love and drugs and addiction. And a 357. Hard caliber. You shoot with your head, not your heart, gunslinger. Say True indeed.
I hope you enjoy it. I had a lot of fun writing it. Plus, the other authors in this Anthology are more than worth price of admission. I was honored to write alongside Kevin G. Summers, Michael Bunker, Hall and Beaulieu, Jason Anspach, MG Herron, AK Meek, and Martin T. Ingram.
And Stephen King. Thank you, gunslinger. For the stories, the tutelage, and your friendship. Even though we’ve never met… we’ve gone many miles together, and late into the night.
Get this one! It’ll scare you to death… and you’ll never listen to Carmen the same way again.
