Authors Give Back Sale at Smashwords

I’m writing this from my home office in Minnesota. For the last few days I’ve stayed home on paid leave from the day job and focused mostly on learning, reading, and long afternoon naps. So far I’ve been lucky not to get sick with the coronavirus, or to know anybody who has it. But the world-wide effects of the pandemic are very real. The world has changed over the last few months and there’s probably no going back to the old normal.

Smashwords put together a wonderful sale for readers, Authors Give Back, which goes through April 20, 2020. Everything from the Hermit Muse Publishing catalog is included in this sale.

Erotic short stories are 30% off.

Erotic collections and short novels are 60% off.

All six issues of Siren’s Garter are FREE.

And everything that exists under my D. Anthony Brown pen-name is 60% off.

You can find the Hermit Muse catalog on Smashwords here. Stay safe. Find things to do, like read fun books. We’ll get through this somehow.

Dirty Thirty!

A few newsworthy items…

Quick reminder about the Smashword’s Summer/Winter sale. You can get the Miriam F. Martin books for half off until the end of the month. Not a lot of time left on the deal.

And something I hadn’t entirely realized… I’ve gone thirty weeks of posting two short stories per week without repeating. “Control” was quickie number thirty, and “For Friends and Money” was the thirtieth humpday story.

Originally I’d planned on writing a brand new short story for each week for 52 weeks. Then life smacked me around and I had to dip into my catalogue to keep things going. But I still wrote a bunch of new work, so total win.

I’m resetting my goals again. So in the meantime, I’ll repost some of the older Wednesday stories until I have a backlog of new stuff. Any requests, you can leave it in the comment section.

And one more thing… I’m rebranding Siren’s Garter yet again. Still have a lot of work with cover designs, but I’m pleased with the new direction. I don’t think I’ll relaunch the issues this year, but certainly early next year I’ll have enough to a) publish more issues, and b) re-release the older issues with new designs. Right now I have six issues published, and the next four mostly put together.

I’ll much more to say about all that when I’m closer to having final products.
