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?


  1. Ahh this ones hard to comment on since I have other connections in my head atm! If I disappear overnight, it's connected to the spider above my bed, staring at me!

    Nice characters, though she seems a bit too Jessica rabbit annoyingly perfect >.< call me jealous lol

  2. Yeah, Colleen definitely could come across that way. One of my other readers said he was in love with her, as he knows the male readers are supposed to be.

    Your spider reference sounds like a Dreki in Wonderland waiting to happen! Thanks for commenting! Consider yourself entered in the contest a few times.
