It’s short story release day!

dirty laundry

Dirty Laundry, the Jamie Brodie short story anthology, is released today! If you pre-ordered, you should already have it on your reading device. If you didn’t, you can buy it now! Here are the links for Smashwords and Amazon.

I’m not releasing this one in paperback. It would cost way too much. When I publish through CreateSpace, they set the minimum price based on the number of pages. This is over 300 pages and would probably be nearly twenty bucks. Too much.

Anyway. I hope you enjoy the stories!

Pre-order and cover reveal!

It’s here! Dirty Laundry, the first volume of Jamie Brodie short stories, is available for pre-order! This is a collection of all the stories that have been previously published, both here on the blog and with books, and a BUNCH (more than half of the 32 stories) of new stories. They span the years 1974-2017 and tell of first meetings, first loves, family history, and more.

The book will be published on August 31. It’s 107,000 words, and most of it is new – so I’m charging a bit more for it than my usual 45K – 55K novels. Fair warning.

Here’s the link for Amazon pre-order. Let me warn you – Amazon wouldn’t allow me to assign the number 14.5 for this book within the series. So I assigned it #0. (I know I’ve seen series books with decimal points; maybe they just stopped allowing that.) So it’s Jamie Brodie Mysteries, #0.

Here’s the link for Smashwords pre-order. Unlike Amazon, Smashwords automatically assigned #15 to the story collection, which is going to mess up my numbering for the rest of the series… sigh.

And here’s the cover!
