What It IsHardboiled. Lean and mean. No silly reviews. No poetry (that's for pussies). No advertising. Nothing but hard hitting stories. In your face and busting up your kiss-maker. Kapow.

SHORY: You’ve used self publishing tools for Needle. What are your thoughts about self publishing?
WEDDLE: I think it’s a boatload of work, is what I think.
Let’s make a distinction here.
Needle is print-on-demand, which is something people have been using longer than they’ve used e-books. Years ago, you could go to the local copy place and have 20 copies of your dragon-slaying novel or your keys-to-productivity guide and sell them out of the back of your van or at the chamber of commerce meeting.
I decided to go this route with Needle because >>>
Remember when Chris F. Holm dropped “The Hitter” on NEEDLE readers back in 2010?
And then that story gets selected for BAMS 2011?
Well, Chris F. Holm has included that piece of awesome in his new collection, DEAD LETTERS, which you can snag for a couple bucks on Amazon right-the-hell now.
“The author’s amazing talent for writing and limitless genius for storytelling guarantees readers a wild ride…”
-The New York Journal of Books
“…a promising new author.”
Submissions are open. Follow the guidelines.
Looking forward to another great year.
Thanks for the support.
OK. You’ve gotten the latest copy of NEEDLE, right?
You’ve got your 245 pages of hardboiled noir? Hugh Lessig, Brad Green, C.J. Edwards, Erik Arneson, Rob W. Hart, Seamus Scanlon, Chris Rhatigan, Ed Kurtz, Kenneth Loosli, John Kenyon, Jeff Macfee, Garnett Elliott, Glenn Gray, Michael Bracken, Thomas Pluck, Timothy Friend, Court Merrigan, Kevin Adler, Kevin Brown, Stacey Cochran, Matthew C. Funk, Jim Winter, and Dan O’Shea.
A couple years ago, we were honored to publish his story “The Hitter.” That fantastic story then was spread around the globe in THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES 2011.
Then Mr. Holm published his first Collector book, DEAD HARVEST. Recently he published the next in the series, THE WRONG GOODBYE.
So here’s the thing.
These two publications can be yours.
Shoot that receipt/order info over to us at needlemagnoir at gmail dot com and we’ll enter you into a drawing for some Chris F. Holm.
Just put “HOLM” in the subject line.
