About BURN CARDS:

Mirna Fowler believes she has been cheated in life, growing up in a broken home alone with a drunken and gambling-addicted father. Now she works at a small hair salon in Reno, doing her best to survive while she saves money for school. Hoping to get a degree that will take her places.

But in the wake of her father's death, Mirna inherits his extravagant debt, an amount of money she can never repay. As her fractured world begins to crumble, the search for the truth sets her on a path where life hangs on her every move.

Advance Praise for BURN CARDS:

“With a character you care about and a momentum you can't avoid, BURN CARDS is aces. This fast-moving novella pulses with enough energy to power all the casinos in Nevada.” - Steve Weddle, author of Country Hardball

"the shit-kicking streets of a dead end desert town have never been meaner." — Joe Clifford, author of Lamentation

"This bare-knuckle noir pulses with energy and punches hard." — William Boyle, author of Gravesend

"Irvin illuminates the city of Reno itself, casting the flickering glow of his sharp observations into every dark corner of the city and bringing forth a rogue’s gallery of gamblers, dreamers, and burnouts who are all heading for the same bitter end." — John Mantooth, author of The Year of the Storm

Plots with Guns - "Napoleon of the North End"

pwgstoryheaders_0016_layer comp 17Plots with Guns is back! Your one stop shop for a weekend full of free reads has put together a monster of a (maybe?) final issue. I'm excited to have my story "Napoleon of the North End" featured alongside work from the likes of Dennis Tafoya, Court Merrigan, and more.

I've been meaning to feature Boston in more of my writing and The North End worked out great with this story. It came together in the last minute and was a lot of fun to write. Thanks again to Anthony Neil Smith, Sean O'Kane, Erik Lundy, and Gonzalo Baeza for publishing my work.

Give 'em some love and check out the full issue HERE.
