Time for another post of miscellaneous items.
First, I'm so happy to announce the acceptance of TWO more short stories:
"The Guitar" will be published in a print anthology called While the Morning Stars Sing, which will come out in May. This is an anthology created by the publishers of ResAliens magazine.
"Jordan's River" will appear online in the March issue of Digital Dragon magazine.
Second, I posted a while back that I would be chronicling my experiences with marketing, and so far I've hit two walls:
One is that the Grandmothers' Necklace anthology, in which I have one story, is only available to me at full price. I'm OK with this, since the proceeds go to charity, but I'd hoped to be able to buy several copies. And it's not available in the U.S. so I'd have to order it from Canada for $20 plus $6 shipping. I haven't even ordered a copy for myself yet :P.
The other marketing wall is the not-so-discount discount price from the publisher on my other anthology, The Ultimate Christian Living. Not quite so unreachable as the first, but still, once tax and shipping is figured in, the price I pay for each book isn't much different than the price on Amazon. So, no real motivation there to buy copies and resell them.
It's not so much the disappointment in me not being able to make a profit off of them. It's more that I can't afford to buy multiple copies at those prices on the off chance someone would like to get one directly from me.
But, if you are interested in buying a copy of either for yourself, here are the links:

Oh, and, you can still get my limerick in Vampyr Verse :).
