Secret Dead Men

This has been the week of several authors joining the blog world. After some persistent hounding, pleading, threats, bribes, you name it, Duane Swierczynski or LeBlanc as his friend refer to him, has join the blog world. In doing so, he has been offically ordained into Sarah Weinman's Harem of Cabana Boys; damn its getting crowded in here. Hey Sarah, I think its time for offical job descriptions and a set schedule of hours.

Duane has a new book coming out under the outstanding Point Blank Press called Secret Dead Men. Well if you have a chance, click on over and congratulate Duane and say hi.

Plots With Guns

The next edition of Plots With Guns is now live! There are 6 wonderful stories from Pat Lambe, Laura Ellen Scott, Cortright McMeel, Mark Conard, Celia McClinton and the ever entertaining Duane Swierczynski aka LeBlanc. Trev Maviano has taken the month off, this will give our virgin ears a rest, but we always look forward to his insight into the hard-boiled world of mystery.
