I just signed a contract with Etopia Press to publish my short story, The Rules. There is no publication date as yet, but they plan to publish it as a stand-alone ebook, which will be available in all the major ebook stores, and as part of a print anthology.
The Rules is the first story in a new series featuring Honolulu PI Ava Rome, who runs The Splintered Paddle Agency. Ava is a former MP and Army CID agent who has left the Army and lives in Hawaii.
Here's a short synopsis of The Rules:
Personal Protection specialist Ava Rome follows three rules: A professional never calls attention to herself or her principal; a professional never leaves her principal; and, the most important rule, a professional never gets involved with her principal. To break the rules is to die.
Ava's principal, Paul, comes from a family with many enemies. The greatest threat, however, comes not from the outside, but from Ava's growing desire. In order to save them both, Ava must leave Paul. But Paul does not want her to leave.
