The New Year has passed, and we’re now beginning 2014.
And, I have great news to start the year with!
Both of the Justice Security short stories that I wrote last year and submitted to Glimmer Train Press are now available on Amazon.com as Kindle ebooks! Glimmer Train decided that these two stories weren’t what they were looking for to add to their publication, so, finally, YOU get your opportunity to read them!
Saturday In The Park was the first Justice Security short story that I wrote last year, and I’m very proud of it! Here’s the synopsis:
“On a gorgeous spring day, the partners of Justice Security choose to have their annual partner meeting as a picnic in the city park.
Joey Justice, Percival “King Louie” Washington, and Dexter and Megan Beck arrive at the park early to find a nice picnic spot, as Misty Wilhite and Jessica Queen are shopping for picnic supplies.
The four in the park find unexpected trouble when they are ambushed by a group of killers.
Questions are going through the minds of Joey and his partners. Who are these people? Why are they trying to kill the partners? And how did they know to catch them in the park?
Saturday In The Park gives you the answers, with action as explosive action as you expect from the folks of Justice Security!”

The other story, MacArthur Park, was the second short story featuring Justice Security. It was written at a fan’s request, delivered to me through Narrator Patrick Peterson. Patrick will be handling the audiobook production for this one, as well. Here’s the synopsis:
“Megan Beck has been asked to perform a highly top-secret job for Justice Security, assigned by their FBI liaison, Marcus Moore.
Megan is given sparse instructions on what she is to do, but no information about why she’s doing this particular job, or who the target might be.
The job, unfortunately, has to be done on the night of her husband’s birthday. Dexter is understanding, but disappointed. He planned to celebrate with her, and his brother that night.
Facing disappointment at missing Dexter’s first birthday since they were married, Megan stoically performs the top secret job.
The outcome of this mysterious mission surprises everyone, but the biggest surprise in MacArthur Park is reserved for Megan Beck!”

Also, please don’t forget the short story The Little Drummer Boy, featuring Justice Security. The story may take place on Christmas Eve, but the message is timeless. Here’s the synopsis:
“It’s Christmas Eve in the city.
Dexter Beck, his wife Megan, and Percival “King Louie” Washington are driving to a special Christmas Eve function.
Louie and Dexter share with Megan a story of another Christmas Eve in the early days of Justice Security, when the fledgling company is providing security for the band, Omega. Omega is in town to perform at a special Christmas Eve charity concert.
Louie and Dexter are driving the drummer, Gil Mullins, to the concert, when the worst blizzard ever to hit the city forces them to abandon their car and take refuge inside St. Francis Catholic Church.
What follows is a story of salvation, comfort, and belief, as a Christmas Eve event repeats itself…and makes a believer of Megan Fisk Beck.
Inspired by the popular Christmas song, The Little Drummer Boy will warm your heart…and make you believe.”

And, as I mentioned in the last blog entry of 2013, Jackie Blue – A Justice Security Novel is now available as an audiobook, with our buddy Scott O’Neill handling the narration. Here’s the link to Jackie Blue:
Still under consideration by Glimmer Train Press is Gold and Hot Child In The City. Both stories are stand-alone stories. Also under consideration by Harlequin Horror is the novella Don’t Come Around Here No More – A Tale Of Sardis County.
Lots of happenings, and it’s all for your enjoyment, readers! So,
