My Work on Smashwords

Just a quick update. As many of you know I have several story reprints available on Amazon as well as the first two volumes in the Lazy Designer series.

Read This: Digital Rights by Brent Knowles (Writers of the Future Winning Story)

Sales have been far from brisk :) But with ‘The […]

iBooks store

So yeah demonstrating the extent of my geekiness I was very pleased to notice yesterday that most of my story reprints are now available in the iBook store for Apple devices. While not quite as cool as holding a new magazine with a story of mine in it, this comes a close second. Just go […]
