We are delighted to welcome back author David Burnsworth to Omnimystery News.

I love to write, but I don't write every day. I think it is important to write every day, it's just that sometimes life gets in the way.

See, I also have a full time job that keeps me busy for a large part of the week. If paying the bills weren't as high on the priority list as they are, I could make a change and free up some time for some serious writing. Or loafing. But, I like my home and my car and being able to take my wife out to eat on the weekends. So I don't mind working.

There are times when either I am working against a deadline or am just so into the scene that I forget about the rest of my life. My wife is an early bird. She gets up at five and is out the door before six every weekday, while I don't have to be at work until eight. I tried to sleep in but found myself awake about the same time as her anyway so I adjusted my schedule. This gives me forty-five minutes to an hour of writing time every morning before work. And on more than one occasion, I have pulled myself out of a scene I was working on only to find that I had no time left and would be pushing the clock to get to my job. Five more minutes would have been nice.

One time, on my wedding anniversary no less, I was pushing a deadline on edits, engrossed in my manuscript, and nearly pushed myself right into the doghouse. The doghouse in my case being a cheap hotel room alongside other absent-minded husbands who picked the wrong time to be passionate about something other than their normally very supportive spouses. And my spouse is very supportive of my writing. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't have written anything else since college. But wedding anniversaries only happen once a year while I can usually write on the other three-hundred-and-sixty-four days so it was definitely a bad call on my part. I'd say five more minutes would have been nice, but with traffic that day I was fifteen minutes late in meeting her and she was not happy.

Why is it that my muse likes to torment me most when I don't have the ability to sit down and open my laptop? In the middle of church service. When I'm riding in the car with my wife. While I'm at work. All inopportune times to write, yet there she is tapping me on the shoulder. All I can do is grab a pen and paper and jot down a few lines and hope I don't forget the scene that just popped into my brain. Yet sometimes, when I have the time and am sitting in front of the blinking cursor, the muse is not with me in my home in Boiling Springs, South Carolina but is in the Bahamas getting a suntan and knocking on someone else's door. Thanks a lot!

I've learned in times of muse-lessness (I just made that up, I think, but feel free to use it), it is still better to put words down. Even bad words, and I'm not talking four-letter ones. Bad in the sense of, "Holy cow that was some bad prose!" Because, and all writers know this or I'm just an idiot (or, more likely, both), that's what editing is for. I've written nine thousand nine hundred and ninety eight bad words plus two good ones, kept the two good ones, and (wait for it …) FINISHED THE BOOK, which is the most important accomplishment in my world.

"So where's he going with this?" you might be asking yourself. I'm asking myself that as well. I guess it comes down to this: We could all use five more minutes. Our passion isn't something we should take for granted that just sits around waiting for us to be ready for it. It has to be snatched from the beach in the Bahamas, dragged back to the spot we call our writing room, wherever that is for those of us who write, and made to work. The book is there ready to be birthed. It needs to be on pixels and paper. Otherwise it's useless electricity in our minds that isn't doing anybody any good.

Go ahead, take five more minutes. Take ten. Snatch back your muse. Make her sit in the chair next to you and get your book written and out there. Just don't be late for your anniversary. That would be bad.

Burning Heat by David Burnsworth

Burning Heat by David Burnsworth

A Brack Pelton Mystery

Publisher: Five Star

Amazon.com Print/Kindle Format(s)BN.com Print/Nook Format(s)

As darkness blankets the holy city of Charleston, South Carolina, Brack Pelton, an Afghanistan War veteran, steps out of a rundown bar after a long night. Before he gets to his truck, he finds himself in the middle of a domestic dispute between a man and a woman on the sidewalk. When a little girl joins the couple and gets hit by the man, Brack intervenes and takes him down. But the abuser isn't finished. He pulls a gun and shoots the woman. Brack saves the little girl, but his world has just been rocked. Again.

The next day, while sitting on a barstool in the Pirate's Cove on the Isle of Palms, his own bar, Brack scans the local paper. The news headline reads: Burned Body of Unidentified Hispanic Man Found at Construction Site. Nothing about a dead woman in the poor section of town. Brack feels a tap on his shoulder and turns around to see an eight-year-old girl standing behind him. She's the little girl he rescued the night before, and she wants him to look into her sister's shooting.

Violence and danger make up Brack's not-too-distant past. Part of him craves it — needs it. And that part has just been fed. Things are about to heat up again in the lowcountry. May God have mercy on the souls who get in the way.

Under the plain gray skirts of Miss Beatrice Lockwood's gown, a pistol waits at the ready. For Beatrice is a paid companion on a secret mission — and with a secret past — and she must be prepared to fight for her life at any moment.

Yet she is thrown oddly off guard by the fierce-looking man who joins her in foiling a crime outside a fancy ball — and then disappears into the shadows, leaving only his card. His name is Joshua Gage, and he claims to know Beatrice's employers. Beyond that, he is an enigma with a hypnotically calm voice and an ebony-and-steel cane …

Joshua, who carries out clandestine investigations for the Crown, is equally intrigued. He has a personal interest in Miss Lockwood, a suspected thief and murderer, not to mention a fraudster who claims to have psychical powers. The quest to discover her whereabouts has pulled him away from his mournful impulses to hurl himself into the sea — and engaged his curiosity about the real Beatrice Lockwood, whose spirit, he suspects, is not as delicate as her face and figure.

He does know one thing, though: This flame-haired beauty was present the night Roland Fleming died at the Academy of the Occult. Guilty or not, she is his guide to a trail of blood and blackmail, mesmerism and madness — a path that will lead both of them into the clutches of a killer who calls himself the Bone Man …

I am the star of screaming headlines and campfire ghost stories. I am one of the four Black-Eyed Susans. The lucky one …

As a sixteen-year-old, Tessa Cartwright was found in a Texas field, barely alive amid a scattering of bones, with only fragments of memory as to how she got there. Ever since, the press has pursued her as the lone surviving "Black-Eyed Susan," the nickname given to the murder victims because of the yellow carpet of wildflowers that flourished above their shared grave. Tessa's testimony about those tragic hours put a man on death row.

Now, almost two decades later, Tessa is an artist and single mother. In the desolate cold of February, she is shocked to discover a freshly planted patch of black-eyed susans — a summertime bloom — just outside her bedroom window. Terrified at the implications — that she sent the wrong man to prison and the real killer remains at large — Tessa turns to the lawyers working to exonerate the man awaiting execution. But the flowers alone are not proof enough, and the forensic investigation of the still-unidentified bones is progressing too slowly. An innocent life hangs in the balance. The legal team appeals to Tessa to undergo hypnosis to retrieve lost memories — and to share the drawings she produced as part of an experimental therapy shortly after her rescue.

What they don't know is that Tessa and the scared, fragile girl she was have built a fortress of secrets. As the clock ticks toward the execution, Tessa fears for her sanity, but even more for the safety of her teenaged daughter. Is a serial killer still roaming free, taunting Tessa with a trail of clues? She has no choice but to confront old ghosts and lingering nightmares to finally discover what really happened that night.

After wearing out his welcome at every bar in town, former SFPD Detective turned private investigator Joe Goodey finds himself in desperate need of a case.

Goodey, though skeptical that the girl was murdered, needs the money, and jumps at the opportunity. But he soon finds that the old man was right — and now it's not just the killer, but an entire cult of former addicts and flotsam called the Institute, who want him dead.

Deets Shanahan — Indianapolis PI — is back for his last case …

At seventy-two years old, Deets Shanahan is ready to 'check out' and embrace old age. But, it seems his body (still functioning — just — after a bout of cancer) and Fate have other plans. Awaiting the arrival of a mystery new client, who wouldn't take no for an answer, he spies her out of his window, making her way up his drive to the front door. Suddenly, he sees her body jerk, go limp, then collapse in a pool of blood on his driveway — dead.

Why did the mystery client insist on meeting with Shanahan, but telling him nothing about the investigation he was to pursue? If he could find out why she wanted to hire him, he would be one step closer to finding her killer.

Shanahan's search for answers will uncover a disturbing trail of greed, lies, ambition, family feuds and police corruption.

The body belongs to an appraiser who had been hired to check out Edison's wine collection. When Edison's sister shows up at Second Chance, she hires Sarah's friends — the kooky and charismatic trio of ladies who call themselves Charlotte's Angels and work out of the shop — to solve the murder, Sarah knows she and Elvis are only going to get deeper into the case. But as it becomes a cat and mouse game of lies, cons, cheats, and family squabbles, can Elvis and Sarah claw their way to the truth before the killer slinks away forever?
