It’s been a busy week. I got another short story collection up for Kindle, Never Ever After, containing three previously published stories based on legends and fairy tales.
Here’s the description:
“A Serca Tale” is a retelling of the old Irish legend “The Pursuit of Diarmuid and Gráinne.”
“King Orfeigh”: A young Irish king has lost his wife to the king of Faerie. Is there any way he can win her back?
“Happily Ever Awhile”: Everyone knows the story of the filthy girl who married the prince by not bleeding into a glass slipper. But what happened to Ellie after the happy ending?
Kipp Poe has put up an interview with me on his blog. Check it out!
For those who subscribe to Daily Science Fiction, my story “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Monkey” will be dropped into your email on Thursday, Feb. 2. It will be posted to the web a week later.
Yseult continues to hang in there in the top 100 in historical fantasy. Last time I checked, it was back into the 80s at #86. I still haven’t managed to get back into the double digits on daily sales, but at least it’s still selling consistently and remaining on at least one bestseller list, which I suspect right there might be fueling more sales.
I’m making steady progress on this editing pass of Shadow of Stone, although I’m not as far as I’d hoped to be. But I’m far enough that in the next few days I’ll be contacting a couple of freelance editors to get samples, quotes, and estimates as to when they might be able to fit the novel into their schedule.
And with all of this I notice that slowly I am becoming a businesswoman in charge of my own career. Yes, I have less time to write than I did before, but at the same time I have more focus. But it’s all still in the experimental stage, and it remains to be seen how it will play out. Wish me luck. 🙂
