As we await the summer publication of Loser Baby, I plan to host a number of giveaways on this site. I’ll be tempting you not only with my own books but also with some treasures from my private library, from classic pulp novels to signed first editions of modern literature. To begin, I’m offering a one-of-a-kind signed edition of my very first novel, The Naked Dame. Written nearly 10 years ago and inspired by the work of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, and James M. Cain, The Naked Dame is a juicy pulp novel set in throwback Los Angeles.

This giveaway will end May 10 at 11:59 p.m.

The Naked Dame

This is a first-edition trade-paperback original of The Naked Dame, a book in the tradition of Hard Case Crime. It’s a fast-paced, twisty-turny crime novel that’ll have you on the edge of your seat.

Guy Redding is a photographer trying to make ends meet. After a few years snapping photos of bad people doing bad things, he’s practically a gumshoe. And when a beautiful naked blonde crosses his path, he suddenly has a very personal mystery to solve. With the entire LA police force (not to mention his past) out to get him, Guy has exactly two days to find the answers to the questions that matter most.

IMPORTANT NOTE: By entering your basic information below, you will enter the giveaway once. HOWEVER, by going through any of the additional actions in the box below, you can increase your chances with multiple bonus entries! By doing so, you also help me build my email list and enhance your awareness of future giveaways!

When I determine the winner, I will personalize the book however that person sees fit. Even if that, you know, means signing my name in blood.
