Crime and Mystery Fiction – Published

January 6, 2010

One of my stories was published yesterday in an ezine. Most of these don’t offer pay, but it’s an excellent way to get exposure. Also the writer still retains rights to have it published elsewhere.

“Darkest Before The Dawn” is an ezine specializing in hard-edged crime and mystery fiction and publishes many excellent stories.

The story accepted for publication is titled, “Cruising”.  Here is the link if you are interested in reading.

Warning! – Contains explicit sex and coarse language. Please don’t read if this offends you, but after all it is a realistic tale about two felons who really are bad to the bone.


Fiction Writing – Excerpt

August 7, 2009

After reading some writing books, I’ve started making an effort to write at least one page a day. So far I’ve been pretty successful. Once I start writing usually I end up with a short story in draft form. Here is the introductory paragraph from a short story called, Arachnophobia, that I completed a couple of days ago. Now for the editing and submission process. Word count on this one is 980.

tarantula“Bobby Drux was afraid of spiders. Ever since he remembered this was part of his psyche. Other kids found out and teased him. Whenever they caught one, it was put in his desk at school or his backpack. They laughed as he ran screaming at the sight of the little creatures. That was then, but now even though he was an adult, the fear remained.”

excerpt from “Arachnophobia” by Steve B. Davis
