I kept this project under wraps for awhile (like most of my projects). It'd been a long time since I wrote any prose fiction, and I was admittedly tentative about getting back on the saddle. I was equally apprehensive about writing noir--even though it's always been a genre I've wanted to explore with my writing (and have, with short comics such as Underworld). Thanks to the urging of my friend Keith Rawson (an excellent crime/noir writer himself) I got back to writing prose. Noir prose.
The result is Blurred Lines, a story I began writing over a year ago, but shelved for a number of reasons. Christopher Grant over at A Twist of Noir was gracious enough to accept the story for publication, and it is posted there right now.
And, to note, stories appear regularly on ATON, so if you're looking for a fix of great noir fiction, check them out. You can't go wrong.
