Publishing Updates

Hello all!

We are taking a break from our Education In Fantasy series to bring you an update about publishing.  (I will try to make sure this break is not as long as the last one.)

Keep an eye out for “Shiny in the Shallows,” one of my short stories that will be published in the upcoming Sword & Sorceress 31.  I’ll let you know here when it comes out.

Pre-Order FANTASTICALLY HORNY!

Hello all!

Would you like to check out my upcoming story, “The Fourth Husband”?  Are you intrigued by Science Fiction or Fantasy erotica?

Are you interested in tales of retired superheroes?

Have a soft spot for zombies?

Then check out the Indiegogo campaign!  Far Horizons is running an Indiegogo campaign to publish their three anthologies, and this is your chance to pre-order one of the anthologies.  If you’re just interested in my story, 5 pounds (it’s a British publisher) will get you the entire ebook.  You can always go up from there if you’re interested in the other anthologies.

The anthologies will be published regardless, but this is a way to both pre-order them and to help pay the people involved.
