The Shot Rang Out

The Shot Rang Out an anthology of 500-word western stories featuring my yarn “Mary’s Medicine” has just been released as a paperback! Fifty-one western authors accepted best-selling author Scott Harris’ invitation to write precisely 500-word stories that included these sentences exactly in this order:

“The shot rang out. I heard her scream at the same time the bottle crashed to the floor.”

It was such a fun project that I’ve already accepted Scott’s invitation to include more of my work in his next two multiple-author collaborations.

I enjoyed reading these widely varied tales crafted from the minds of so many writers based on the same eighteen words, and believe some of you will too.

The Shot Rang Out

With Love,
