Maybe that's why I enjoyed the reading. I also enjoy radio plays!

I know.

Alright. I just read one of the stories written by a first time writer. I don't think it's egotistical to say that my stories really are better than that. It had a really stupid ending. My future is looking up. I have one long story that I am proud of...Death of a Salesman. It is just under 10,000 words. That would be $800. I'm thinking of sending it in.

I mailed that at 3:30 yest , it must have hit the trucks just right. It would have took 2 days to mail it next door....

Yeah there are some stories in those that I just have to quit in the middle, but some really good.

Good luck.

NEW STORY- Death on a Sailboat.

www.terrydec.com

Note: Recently one of my stories, "Death in the Hills", was featured in a mystery show on a radio station in the San Francisco area. I have more stories to add but they still need to be vetted by my editorial staff.

We are currently going over all 10 stories to decide which one to submit to Ellery Queen Magazine. Any input would be welcome.

One of my stories was titled- Murder in the Hills. My friend on the west coast hired an actor to record the story. I just got it yesterday. It is AMAZING! This guy nailed all of the characters. Three other people have heard it and like it better than the written version. Maybe I have been writing radio plays all this time. They are going to post it on YouTube. I may not get rich but I might get famous in spite of myself.

NEW UPDATE:
I have just finished recording the first story for an audio disk.  It came out pretty good when you consider that I had to talk for 20 minutes straight and do 4 separate voices, two of them on the telephone.  How did I do that?  A cheap mic with the EQ peaked around 1,500.  The story is also ready to submit to Ellery Queen magazine.  Thanks again Simplex.

A friend in San Francisco gave my stories to a teacher.  After critiquing me on the the punctuation she went on to say that my writing was, "original", "unique, "easy to read" and "phenomenal."  

I couldn't have said it better myself.  Very Happy

Just a thought Terry .... maybe you could submit your recordings to PBS? They might use them as radio plays? I have no idea if or how a person gets paid for that, but it won't cost anything to try?

cheers

I don't know about PBS but I have always dreamed of some kind of show for syndication. You never know. I'm going out to California in a few weeks and one thing I am going to do is promote the stories. Out there anything could happen.

I have just updated my website and added 5 new Larry Digger stories. If you liked any of my other work you'll love these.

Guess what?  Two more original Larry Digger detective stories have been posted on my website.

"Murder at the Track"  Larry finds death at Churchill Downs during the Derby and makes friends with a friendly horse.

"Murder in the Hospital."  Larry goes in for a routine appendectomy, but encounters death.  Is it the cousin with the funny name?  Or someone else?

This makes 14 stories, plus a book.

Advance alert-
I just finished buying a podcast site from Godaddy. The domain name is terrydecker. Pretty cool, huh? It'll take a few days to get set up. I'm so excited. It won't be about the stories, just observations, interviews, walking in the neighborhood, stuff like that. Hopefully it will be interesting and funny. Welcome to my world.
