Several months ago, I sold “A Burial” to Page and Spine. When I decided to use the story in my collection, the editor, N.K. Wagner not only agreed to provide a blurb for the back of the book, but also said she would hold off on publishing the story so that its publication would coincide with the release of the book.
“A Burial” is the first story in the All Manner of Dark Things, and I think it provides a good example of the type of literary fiction that I write. If you are looking for a good sample before deciding whether or not to buy the book, it is free and available now.
They deserve your support, regardless. They’ve been extremely cooperative and supportive during the entire submission and publication process.
I’ve also set up an online store through Square. There is a link to it at the top of the page. Living in Kansas, but being from Iowa, I have had a few people who wanted to buy print copies of All Manner of Dark Things but that wanted them signed. That’s awfully hard to do if they are purchased from Amazon.

It’s the same system that I will be using to sell copies at conventions and appearances. The price is essentially the same as Amazon, but I will sign the book before I personally ship it out to you.The turn around is a bit faster than Amazon, because I have copies on hand and will generally get them sent out the next day.
I appreciate the positive response that I have received from everyone. I can’t tell you how much the support means to me. If you like the book, remember to review it on Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever you regularly do such things.
Additionally, print copies of Rejected from ACA Books, which contains my story “A Simple Device,” are now available. You can find them on Amazon. Many of the early reviews specifically mention “A Simple Device” as one of the best stories in the book.
Thanks for reading. I should have more news shortly.
