Magic Claims is one week old today, and I think that was the busiest release I ever remember. We’ve tried ads, we redid our office set up, we opened the store, and now I’m deliriously happy that everything has ran its course and we can get back to writing.
Frank Norris once said, “Don’t like to write, but like having written. Hate the effort of driving pen from line to line, work only three hours a day, but work every day.” This quote is often attributed to Dorothy Parker for some reason. I’m the opposite. I like to write. Being the “Author” is a side gig.
I can stop being the author after tomorrow. Tomorrow – and I am very excited about this – Ashland Library is hosting an event with us and Nalini Singh. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen each other and this will be a lovely chance to catch up.
I have some self-publishing questions to answer, which I will do in the next post to keep things organized. But first, some housekeeping.
The store will close tonight at 10:00 pm CT. We aim to process all of your orders by Monday. (It was Friday, but you bought more things, and we wait at least 24 hours before we process the order in case you need to adjust something.)
A word about refunds: 10% of the mugs arrived broken during the holiday season. If your mug is broken, our supplier will replace your mug at no cost to us. Please do not hesitate to contact us through the store contact form.
Availability of the short stories
We’ve had numerous requests for collecting the new short stories in a volume so they can be available off-line. The problem is that there isn’t enough content yet to do an anthology. It would be very short, the size of a novella. We will figure out how to do this. It will either be available as bonus material in one of the subsequent books or we will write more to fatten it up.
And now I am going to turn the blog over to Mod R. Because “You are bad, no worries they’re paying. The door very big.” What does that mean? Read the next post!
