Hello everyone. A quirky mystery novella I wrote in 2009 has finally been published. This is not because I’ve been submitting it to anyone who would pay attention and they’ve all rejected me but because it’s been sitting on my computer until now (although it did go out to a publisher I’d met a few times who said he was very tempted but after several months pondering eventually declined).
It was published on Tuesday this week and has already received a 5-star rating! The novella is available from https://www.amazon.com/After-Jessica-mystery-Morgen-Bailey-ebook/dp/B01LWY36LK at 99c, https://www.amazon.co.uk/After-Jessica-mystery-Morgen-Bailey-ebook/dp/B01LWY36LK at 99p, and available in your country at the equivalent rate.
This is the blurb…
Jessica is an ordinary girl who comes across extraordinary circumstances and pays for them with her life. As well as identifying her body, her brother Simon then has to wind up her affairs but gets more than he bargains for. Who is Alexis, and why are Veronica and Daniel searching for her? Why is there a roll of cash in Jessica’s house, and what’s the connection between Simon’s sister and Alexis?

I am currently making final tweaks to another novella, a lad lit crime, which originally started life in 2008 as the first act of a college course play, about a trainee hitman, and this should be available early October. Here’s the cover…
