I'm in print. Again.

January, Vol. 1

Or will be, Dec. 1st. For this week it's just the e-book. But I'm over the moon.

The Pure Slush project I've been working on since April this year is out, ladies and gentlemen. The e-book version of 2014 January and 2014 February is available (.mobi and .epub), and the POD will be available starting December 1st from Lulu.

Tip: Lulu orders placed before Dec. 10th get free shipping (code FREESHIP) and are delivered by Christmas. I'd love to be your Christmas gift ;)

February, Vol. 2
This is an awesome project, by the way. No, not because I'm a part of it. Seriously. Listen. Thirty-one authors. One story per month, always on the same day of the month. Same characters. Their lives through a whole year. 2014. Thirty twelve-chapter novellas, if you will.

(Teasers at the Pure Slush site: JanuaryFebruaryMarch.)

Then again, because each volume--one per month--is published a month apart, each story must have its own arc, its own merit. We hope everyone will buy & read all twelve volumes, of course, but what if they don't? Each story has to stand alone, even in a small way.

That, for me, has been the greatest challenge. And the steepest learning curve. It's made me (okay, it's making me) a much better novelist. Imagine if the chapters of my novels each stand alone like this. Wow, huh?

March, Vol. 3

I needed this today. NaNo this year left me more exhausted, emotionally, than either of the last two--maybe than both of them combined. I needed this. Thank you, Pure Slush, for making me a part of this. It's a pleasure to work with such competent editors, and I'm honored to be among these fantastic writers.

This. THIS. Indescribable.


  1. Astonishing. My hat's off to you. Again. I'll sneak over for a peek. For me I've managed to post just a half dozen vignette stories today on my blog, the first in years. And that killed me. I don't know how you do it.

    1. Thank you, Peter! And sorry for the late reply; somehow I missed your comment here until now. I'll click over to your blog now and check out what you've been up to. Happy new year!

  2. Writing a story that can stand on its own yet be part of a larger plot is incredibly hard, I agree, so well done! Hope the project is a huge success :)

    1. Thank you! And thanks for stopping by :) It's nice to reconnect.
