FREE E-BOOK: HALLAM!

FREE E-BOOK: HALLAM!

IF YOU HAVEN’T MADE THE AQUAINTANCE OF 1920’S HOLLYWOOD STUNDTMAN/P.I. LUCAS HALLAM, YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD. AND NOW YOU HAVE THE PERFECT CHANCE FOR AN INTRODUCTION – HALLAM’S CREATOR, AUTHOR L. J. WASHBURN, IS OFFERING A FREE E-VERSION OF THE SHORT STORY IN WHICH HALLAM MADE HIS FIRST APPEARANCE . . .

Hallam was the first appearance of Lucas Hallam, 1920's Hollywood stuntman/PI. This 10,000 word novelette appeared in the first Private Eye Writers of America anthology THE EYES HAVE IT in 1984 and hasn't been reprinted since. The day I came up with the idea of Lucas Hallam, I called my husband, James. I was so excited that I couldn't wait for him to come home from our bookstore. After I told him about my idea, he said, "It sounds like it would be a lot of fun to write, but you'll never sell it." Ha. I've been selling Hallam stories for almost 30 years, and while I haven't gotten rich off the ol' cowboy, James was right about one thing, I sure have had fun writing about him . . .
