My short short story “Withhold the Dawn” will appear in the upcoming anthology Tiny Crimes: Very Short Tales of Mystery and Murder, edited by Nadxieli Nieto and Lincoln Michel.
Enter for a chance to win a copy of Tiny Crimes here, before April 30. #Goodreads #Giveaway
Here is the promo copy for the reading: “Tiny Crimes gathers leading and emerging literary voices to tell tales of villainy and intrigue in only a few hundred words. From the most hard-boiled of noirs to the coziest of mysteries, with diminutive double crosses, miniature murders, and crimes both real and imagined, Tiny Crimes rounds up all the usual suspects, and some unusual suspects, too. With illustrations by Wesley Allsbrook and flash fiction by Carmen Maria Machado, Benjamin Percy, Amelia Gray, Adam Sternbergh, Yuri Herrera, Julia Elliott, Elizabeth Hand, Brian Evenson, Charles Yu, Laura van den Berg, and more, [and me,] Tiny Crimes scours the underbelly of modern life to expose the criminal, the illegal, and the depraved. Editors Nadxieli Nieto and Lincoln Michel host an evening of readings from some of the collection’s contributors [et moi].”
Of the anthology, Michael Pucci in the Library Journal noted, “The tenor of each piece varies from the dreamlike (Laura van den Berg’s ‘Friends’) to the deliciously gruesome (Richie Navarez’s [sic] ‘Withhold the Dawn’).”
