A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, a job application asked me:
What is your greatest strength?
What is your greatest weakness?
To the first question, I replied, “I’m willing to work extra hard for creative control.”
I had to cast about a bit for the answer to the second. I replied, ‘Perfectionism,” though I wasn’t sure I qualified. (Pro tip: if you’re not sure that you’re worthy to call yourself a perfectionist, you are one.)
Never told so much truth in so small a space in my life.
Now, after feedback from writing pals far and near, I have realized that I’m sitting on almost 200K words of short fiction in the form of flash fiction, character interviews, and unclassifiable short things that nonetheless have a life of their own. I hadn’t thought they were “real,” because, hey, I am not a short story writer, and anyway they were written on the way to someplace else …
So, starting a week from today, these short pieces are going to be published in a variety of on-line stores both as singles and in anthologies. At the same time, pricing will be revised on existing offerings to make them more accessible.
At the end of the week, we’ll have cover reveals and list of titles. Stay tuned!
