MY LATEST RELEASES
From the publisher's description:
A death rattle echoes down a shadowy alley…. Guns blaze like exploding suns in the dead of night…
And make no mistake about who’s responsible…. The Dame Did It!
Pro Se Productions presents a collection of new stories wrapped in the shadows of Noir and definitely Hard Boiled with a feminine touch. Authors Joel Jenkins, Christofer Nigro, Shannon Muir, and Percival Constantine deliver two-fisted, gun shooting hard core action in these blood-soaked pages, and each tale revolves around a woman. A heroine desperate to save the day, a villainess hungry to destroy, or someone trapped in the middle. All and
more will be found in The Dame Did It!
Includes my story, "Tragic Like a Torch Song".
