"Pink Lemonade" Free Now at

My newest story, "Pink Lemonade," has been published!!!

If you're looking for a very, very short story about a private detective profiling and following a possible rapist, then my newest short story, "Pink Lemonade," is for you.  It's free right now at  (It's also about letting people be; see: the last sentence and the title.)

And if you have a moment, please take a look at another Brad Foster story, "Everything's Connected," published last year at OMDB!, which the publisher was nice enough to link to this story.

I'm interested in what you think about "Pink Lemonade," so please send me an email or a comment and opine!

Thanks again for reading my stuff.  It means a lot to me.

BTW, I can log onto the website directly from my Microsoft Edge (Explorer) but not from my Google Chrome.  Can anyone explain this?

Rights to "Pink Lemonade" Sold to

I'm happy to say that another short story, this time "Pink Lemonade," has been sold to OMDB!  (Well, the rights to the short story were sold, but you know what I mean.)  Anyway, the good folks over at OMDB!--namely the editor, Ms. Cherie Jung--also published another Brad Foster short story, "Everything's Connected," in August, 2014.  I'm grateful again to Ms. Jung.

I don't know when "Pink Lemonade" will be published, so I'll keep you updated.  Remember that is a free fiction site (though it pays its authors, of course), and it publishes quality short mystery and detective fiction.  If you like the genre, please give it a shot.

Thanks again to Ms. Cherie Jung, all the folks at OMDB! and, of course, to all my readers.  You all rule!

FREE Short Story -- Everything's Connected Published by Over My Dead Body--The Online Mystery Magazine
Photo: Icon and link for, where you can read my free and very short story.  Just click the picture!  Scroll to the title under August, 2014.

"Everything's Connected," a free story about a detective who catches a cheating spouse in the act (sort of), solves a kid's disappearance, and proves a little theoretical quantum physics--all in fewer than 2,000 words!--was purchased by Over My Dead Body! The Mystery Magazine Online. It's available for free at Just scroll down to August, 2014 and click the title link. Again, it's free!  And really, really short!

This story has been up since August, but--because I'm an idiot--I haven't put it up here.  It's a special story for me because it has a couple of characters who appear in my soon-to-be-finished NIP (novel-in-progress), which I've been working on since time immemorial.  Foster, a main character of both story and novel, has a kinetic pace and verbal flow that come off well here.

So I hope you like it.  If so, please comment below and say so.  The figurative check will be in the metaphorical mail--or something like that.  And did I mention that it's a free story?
