It’s been some time getting this ready, but I’m pleased to announce that as of this week, I’m re-releasing my short story “The Blood of the Land”.
This story was originally published by Drollerie in the anthology Defiance, and has been unavailable for general purchase since Drollerie folded. I’m releasing it now as a standalone download, now that I’ve got proper cover art for it and have made EPUB and MOBI editions.
The story will be available on all my usual outlets. However, a special note: on Smashwords in particular, I have set the price to “reader sets price”. The recommended price is $0.99, which is what will be the price everywhere else. But on Smashwords, this means you can grab the story for free if you want! You can find it on Smashwords in EPUB format here.
Meanwhile: I have also done a little bit of rearranging of certain site pages to reflect this story’s release. The previous page for Defiance has been retooled into an Out of Print page. And a new Short Stories page is now live and accessible on the Books menu. This page is the official source of data for the story. (And I’ll eventually be adding other stories there as well, which is why it doesn’t have a standalone page.)
As with any other of my indie releases, I will also still happily hand-sell you a copy of this story. I will also honor the “reader sets price” Smashwords setting in personal transactions–which means that if you want a copy of the EPUB or MOBI for free, you have but to ask me, and I’ll send it to you. If you want to give me any money at all, though, see the Buying from Me page for details on how best to get me that money.
Any questions, let me know!
