I’ve broken ground on “The Truck Stop’s Here” – my first compilation of short stories, in the crime / noir genre.

I’m getting an intuitive feel for which story should follow on from which. I’m also getting a sense of what the collection will look like, in both print and electronic forms.

My design for the front cover presents a bit of a challenge, as I’m hoping not to use any of my previous methods of graphic presentation. Only time will tell how successful this will be.

To get a sense of what the book will contain, you’re welcome to visit my existing collection at A Twist of Noir (The link’s in the sidebar). The final publication will include all of these, plus new material I’ve added, and will continue to add in the coming weeks.

In the meantime,
