The Capture, a short, police procedural is available free this weekend at Amazon. The story is super short, but then it was written in response to an eight-hour fiction-writing challenge. The project was great fun. I’d written about this sheriff before in a different short story called The Baying Witness. It was one of the first things I ever published.
In The Capture, Sheriff Delton Ross is asked to help catch an escaped felon. The jailbird is said to have an aunt living locally. Could Ross check the lead out? And Ross, who believes in friendship and justice, undertakes the task.
I’ll write more about the challenges of writing and eight-hour piece of fiction next week. In the meantime, you can pick up your copy of The Capture here.
