The Crooked House of Coins

The Crooked House of CoinsMy short story "The Crooked House of Coins" is now available as a Kindle single. It's a haunted house story that I published in an anthology over a year ago. I've since done some extensive rewriting. It's longer and better (I hope, fingers crossed) than the original.

In a small Midwestern town at the end of a lane stands a crooked house, where deaths and secrets entwine. Two cousins, heirs to the family legacy, search for a treasure secreted in the old dwelling's walls, driven by gold lust and tantalizing clues. The Crooked House is a grudging giver, and some secrets are best left alone.

"The Crooked House of Coins" will be part of the SpecFic Authors Collective launch on November 25th. The SFA Collective team includes Milo James Fowler, Simon Kewin, Lyndon Perry, and me. Check out the index page to see my reviews of some of their stories. You're going to like what we have to offer. We'll be bringing you FOUR eBook giveaways. Follow us on Twitter and our brand-spankin' new blog to find out when you can lay your hands on a collection of dark SF tales, a cyberpunk novelette, a spooky short story, and a Mesoamerican fantasy.
