Making Stories Happen: Two Kickstarter Anthologies

I’ve agreed to write a new short story for two new anthologies that are now up as separate Kickstarter projects, WINTER IN THE CITY and CARS, CARDS, AND CARBINES.  Each of these projects has a very cool high concept and a great cast of authors.

One Piece at a Time: THE DRAGON BUSINESS now being offered as a Kindle Serial

This is an innovative way to read a story.  I was invited to be one of the authors in the new Amazon Kindle Serials program, where readers will get a new book of mine one piece at a time, each week for eight weeks.

Kindle Serials commissioned me to write THE DRAGON BUSINESS, which I blogged about as I produced it during the summer. This is a hilarious fantasy spoof about a group of medieval con men who travel from kingdom to kingdom selling their services as dragonslayers…even though there’s no dragon.  For fans of the Dan Shamble books, you’ll particularly love this.
