Not exactly self published, but shameless self promotion, so I guess it fits in here. ... ember.html
A book review in Lyrica
A short in the Shadowbox Anthology, entitled "Erotica", all proceeds will go to charity.

"Crystal Balls is this week's featured story." Escape Pod
The story was read for us by Evo Terra, co-host of the Dragon Page series of podcasts. He had a lot of fun with the New York accent, and hopefully you'll enjoy his interpretation."

Cool ghostie! I almost wish you hadn't mentioned the escape pod one yet as I'd have been listening to it in a couple of days anyway and it would have been a cool suprise to find out it was you AFTER the fact :D (and I'd have been sitting there wondering "where do I remember that author's name from?"). Congrats on the sales!

Just listened to the escape pod of your story Ghostie, enjoyable little tale... two questions about it

A ) Escape pod does a lot of "reprint" stories... had you sold that one elsewhere before?

B ) Did you envision the new york accent the reader used when you wrote it?

Yes, it was sold once and given away once. I just sent it in on a lark, to see what would happen.

Yep, I wrote it with the accent in mind. :D I previewed it right here, as a matter of fact. Youse guys got the first read, before I polished it up and sent it off to Neo-Opsis. It's also been in Whispering Spirits, I think, or Worlds of Wonders. I fergets. That little story has hit 3 formats. Go figure.

I got a kick out of the editor's response. He was all for the story, even knowing it was a reprint. He liked the accent, and the attitude.

He's a really great person to work with. (hint hint!)
