A new Ray Cruz story

Ray Cruz is a piece of fictional meanness I conjured up a while back. One story about him ran in the last Crimespree and now there is a story at Plots with Guns. It is called "Padrino," and I've just re-read it, and I still like it. Sometimes I re-read a story and dislike it. If I'm lucky, I do that before I send it out to a magazine editor. There's a tip for beginning writers - set aside at least as much as you send out. Be your own worst critic - trust me, if you don't do it, there'll be a line out the door of people waiting to do it for you.

In any event, I'm not as happy with the pictures of myself in PWG. In case you're interested though the pictures have a glue gun being pressed to my head, there are no glue guns in the story. Ray doesn't work that way.

In any event, I'm thinking another Ray Cruz story might come out on Kindle along with a bunch of others one of these days. We'll see.

Tell me what you think of the story.

I thought it was a very good story. Ray is not a nice person, but he doesn't let it bother him. And he gets results.

You don't like the pics??? I think they're awesome, regardless of the glue gun. Especially the front page "death mask" sort of look. No, man, you rocked the pics.
