One Less Elvis (and Other Stories)

one less elvis coverI have a new e-book out, One Less Elvis (and Other Stories). It features five crime stories and/or tales of folks pushed to the existential edge. I’m going to paste in the blurb from Smashwords below:

The title story is a 10,000 word novelette set in Chicago in 1993. More specifically at the Anders Regency in The Loop, where an Elvis impersonators convention is going on. Larry “Hound Dog” Vasquez has been found murdered. Those at the convention–musicians, impersonators, agents, hangers-on–all share an admiration of Elvis. The other thing they all seem to have had in common was a dislike of “Hound Dog” Vasquez, who’d apparently been obnoxious. But then again, so is Lt. Davis, the cop investigating the homicide, and he’s also lazy and cynical. He thinks the easiest thing would be slap together a case against Howie Sparkle, “The Memphis Queen.” A few of those at the convention, though, harbor the quaint idea that there should be an actual investigation of the murder.

The remaining four stories involve an eleven-year-old girl who discovers something disturbing in her brother’s backpack, a deranged pizza delivery man, a commodities trader pushed to the literal edge, and an apostate minister trying to come up with a sermon on Easter morning.

The collection is available at Amazon.comBarnesandNoble.com, iBooks, Smashwords, and anyplace else that sells e-book downloads. It goes for $0.99 (cheap). Hope you’ll check it out
