BEAT ON THE BRAT

NIGEL BIRD

KINDLE EDITION ~ $.99

Beat On The Brat (And Other Stories) is the second collection to be released by prize winning author Nigel Bird, following the success of his debut, the critically acclaimed Dirty Old Town (And Other Stories).

Here are 9 more pieces from the shadows.

The lead story, Beat On The Brat, was the winner of the prestigious Watery Grave Invitational competition of 2010. It went on to be published in the highly-regarded Needle Magazine and was nominated for Spinetingler’s ‘Best Story Online’ earlier this year.

In 2010, his success in 2010’s Watery Grave Invitation was followed by a 5th place story entitled ‘Too Much Too Young’. The story appears here as ‘Back In Black’ as a dedication to the wonderful Amy Winehouse who died on the weekend before release.

‘Hoodwinked’ appeared at ‘All Due Respect’, ‘Mind Your Step’ at Microw, ‘Sugar and Spice’ at A Twist Of Noir’ and ‘Snow Angel’ at ‘Not From Here Are You’.

His work has appeared recently in the collections ‘The Mammoth Book of Best Of British Crime Stories’ and the debut release from Snubnose entitled ‘Speedloader’.

This follows appearances in Crimefactory; Dark Valentine; Beat to a Pulp; Pulp Metal; Crimespree; and a number of other wonderful homes.

Later this year Nigel is to put out the anthology ‘Pulp Ink’ with co-editor Chris Rhatigan. He is confident that the names involved and the quality of the work will make it one of the finest short fiction collections of the year.

His blog ‘Sea Minor’ is currently running the ‘Dancing With Myself’ series of interviews. He hopes to complete his novel by the end of 2011.
