Look for my short story, “Her Father's Killer” in the November 2017 issue of Mystery Weekly. The hard-copy issue hits newsstands today, November 1, and digital issues are already available.
"Her Father's Killer" is set in the 1940s. A young woman returns to her Appalachian hometown to avenge her father's murder.
Mystery Weekly is a lovely magazine published out of Canada. You can buy digital issues via the Kindle Newsstand, and print copies via Amazon. You can also snag digital copies via Google Play, the App Store, or direct from their website here. If you want to check out my story, make sure you are downloading the November issue shown here.
Submissions stats: I finished this story sometime in March 2014, but it never found a home until Mystery Weekly bought it in August 2017. They took only 34 days to say yes, and the story is appearing about one month from acceptance. Payment was $25.
Yes, I will someday release an e-book version of of the story, which I’ll offer free to readers on my list. If you’d rather wait for the free copy, please join my e-newsletter.
