New Sales News
This is one
of those pages I hope to update frequently.
So please check back often.
Although every author hopes that everything he/she writes will sell,
that is not the reality for most of us. Perhaps eventually
every story sells, but stories don't necessarily sell to the first or
even tenth market tried. The competition is fierce and so
sale should be celebrated.
Between celebrations, writers don't
just stand by waiting . . . they write. But me hunched over a
computer isn't much of a picture.
For publisher information on the sales listed below, check out the
publications page under the appropriate genre.
Watch For These Titles
In Media Tie-Ins:
for two of my stories in the upcoming anthology from the 2011 Bonanza
Round Up convention in September. So these stories are westerns based
on the popular TV series. In "The Cattle Drive" two storylines are
interwoven. In one, Adam, Hoss and Little Joe are on a cattle drive,
dealing with rustlers, swollen rivers and robbers while on the
homefront, Ben Cartwright is entertaining the territorial governor and
falling in love with the wrong woman. In "Snowed In" the boys are bored
while stuck at home and Joe decides to get Adam's goat with a little
help from Hoss. But the pranks are turned around on all of them.
Goth Girl Next Door" is the story of a vampire who's just trying to
make a living as a coffin model when a monster hunter moves in next
door. Find it in Esther Friesner's anthology
"Fangs for the Mammories" which was published by Baen Books in the fall of 2010. So it's in bookstores now.
Fort" recently appeared in the anthology "Monster Mash," published by
Pill Hill Press. The story's alternative title was "The Ghoul
Solution." In this historically set story at a French fort in the
1600s, a local Indian tribe has taken sick and turned into zombies.
Well, what eats the dead--or undead? Ghouls. You get the picture.
recently appeared in the anthology "Belong" which was published out of
Australia. In this historical fantasy, I explore the reason for why the
Abernaki legendary city of Norumbega vanished from North America.
coming soon, you can read my story in the anthology "Dia de los
Muertos." In this historical fantasy, the creator of the catrinas
(those dressed skeletons associated with the Mexican holiday Dia de los
Muertos) is featured as creating a living catrina, quite by accident,
which appears in modern times. This story contains elements of magic
realism as well.
