Nevada Thunder by Chris Leek

September 4, 2013

We are pleased to announce that we will be publishing Nevada Thunder by Chris Leek, a 20k word novella.

The sun isn’t the only thing that beats on you in the Nevada desert. Johnny Gregson learned that the hard way. He used to be a fighter, sooner or later people will realize that he still is.

His only knock down came from Carlo Martinez, but it didn’t happen in the ring. Martinez is no boxer. He’s the Las Vegas front man for a Mexican drug cartel. When Gregson refused to throw a fight, Martinez paid him back with a trumped up drug charge. Call it a technical K.O.

Gregson did the time and came out a little older and maybe a little wiser. He didn’t want revenge, but that wasn’t going to stop his surrogate sister, Kara from trying to get it for him. Her naive attempt at blackmail has landed them both in a world of trouble. Part of the problem is that Kara doesn’t have anything on Martinez; the other part is Martinez believes she does.

We are pleased to announce that we will be publishing How Kirsty Gets Her Kicks by Jenny Thomson, a 35k word novella.

How Kirsty Gets Her Kicks is a tale of skulduggery set on the mean streets of Glasgow. One-legged barmaid Kirsty is in a shit-load of trouble after she kills one of gangster Jimmy McPhee’s goons with a stiletto heel to the head and goes on the run with a safe load of stolen cash, a hot gun and choirboy barman Jamie.

How Kirsty Gets Her Kicks has been described as “gonzo, over-the-top, wild-and-crazy sort of pulp fiction” and that it was too short).
