Here it is:
|Bayou Moon by me, a mystery|
2002 by Thomas Dunne
The editor at Thomas Dunne passed on my second effort and I tried like hell to do my stuff. (I found another literary agent. The literary agent dumped me. I kept writing books and trying to find another 'good' agent. It didn't work out. It's beginning to sound like a very lame soap opera.) Then ePublishing came around and wow, I went ahead and put out just about everything I have. (Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!) Some of the stuff is genre. Some of the stuff was meant to be published under a pseudonym. Some readers don't like that I genre hopped. Some readers love it. I won't apologize. I love to write and I tend to have a little romantic thing going on it each of my books. (The one that a lot of people seem to dislike is The Life and Death of Bayou Billy, probably because it's pretty raunchy, but it's also funny as hell. An infamous outlaw dies and two neighboring towns fight to get the right to bury his body in their town. Corpse-napping and other hilarity ensues.) But I'm digressing. Once I got all the books out there, I made most of them free just to give people a taste. Unfortunately I couldn't do this on Amazon but I did it on many of the other epubs, notably Barnes & Noble. And some of them are doing very well.
For example, Bubba and the Dead Woman is a favorite. Bubba is a good old boy involved in a genuine murder mystery and everyone thinks he done did it. (Incidentally this is FREE at B & N and http://www.smashwords.com/, so if can download it, YOU REALLY SHOULD.) It's so popular I wrote a second one that will be published in the next couple of days.

Hmm. This seems to be suspiciously
familiar, doesn't it?
