Jack Martin asked for a Cash Laramie short for his next Wild West Monday. Mr. Martin (aka Gary Dobbs) has been a stalwart force in the western revival and I was more than glad to contribute.
My story, "Melanie," is the tale of an seven-year-old girl who sells flowers and is physically abused by her guardians. You can imagine that doesn't sit well with Marshal Laramie, however, this is the Old West where folks also don't take kindly to the law butting into family issues. Two worlds collide and a little girl is caught in the middle in the ninth story featuring my western antihero.
"Melanie" is coming January 3rd to The Tainted Archive.
