The Exquisite Corpse: Volume 1

“We’ll always have Kampala.”

Volume 1 of The Exquisite Corpse, an ongoing, collaborative Lockdown Noir project created and developed by Steve Weddle and Nick Kolakowski is now live! 25 authors – one hell of a story!

Each author each took a cue from the chapter before and ran with it. I was thrilled to be involved and the results were fantastic!

You can now download the entire story – for free – in your format of choice:

In PDF format

In MOBI format

In EPUB format

The project was a blast to be involved with from start to finish – so much so that I will serve as the guest editor for Volume 2.

The second instalment picks up Joyce’s story – and takes it in a whole new direction!

I’m hoping to secure the talents of a mixture of returning writers and fresh blood. If you think you have what it takes, please get in touch!
