New Short Story Release! & more news

"Romeo & Jillian"

13th century Italy: A mysterious sorceress meets a werewolf who'll change her life. (A short story of 3,300 words plus an excerpt from the novel Destiny's Kiss.)

Yes! I got it out, yes I did!

I decided to put the excerpt from Destiny's Kiss in this story, too, because Romeo and Jillian do appear in that book, and Jillian mentions the time she set Romeo's cousin's tail on fire.

Because "Romeo & Jillian" is short—even shorter than "The Corpse Cat"—I decided to release it for "Set your own price" on Smashwords, which means you don't have to pay anything if you don't want to. I have to price it at $0.99 US on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. (ETA links.)

But if you use Smashwords, you can get "Romeo & Jillian" free! Go on!

I'm a bit confused because the cover turns blurrier when the image gets smaller, but I'm living and learning.

I'm also way behind where I wanted to be on A Fistful of Fire, at this point, but oh, well. I've done another one of those back-up-and-change-plot things that I'd hoped to do after I had the first draft done, but my brain really doesn't work that way.

Oh, well.

As a side note, I have a completely unrelated novelette sitting on my computer that I'm trying to submit to Kindle Singles, but they e-mailed me back that I would have to self-publish it for Kindle myself before I could submit it to them—even though their information page says you can submit unpublished material.

If I do decide that I want to continue submitting to Kindle Singles, I will not be announcing this particular work's release, and I may not leave it up if Kindle Singles rejects it, so fair warning to all.
