Look for my short story, “Double-Slay,” in the April 2017 issue of Mystery Weekly. The hard-copy issue hits newsstands today, April 1, and digital issues are already available.
As the editors describe it, "Double-Slay" is the story of how a pair of sweet senior citizens turn the tables on the worst serial killer ever.
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 April issue shown here.
Submissions stats: I finished this story sometime in June 2012, but never got around to submitting anywhere until this year. I'd been hearing good things about Mystery Weekly, so I submitted. They took only 12 days to say yes, and the story is appearing about one month from acceptance. Payment was $20.
Yes, I will someday release an e-book version of “Double-Slay," which I’ll offer free to readers on my list. If you’d rather wait for the free copy, please join my e-newsletter.
