Short Story Published in Anthology
My short story ‘The Pretender’ was highly commended in the annual ‘Twisted Stringybark Award’ and is to be published in the accompanying anthology. Always good to get a writing credit.
There’s both a kindle version and a paperback. Here’s the e-version order details: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/162482

Hooray! We’ll be on Kindle together. My agent let me put four novels and a novella online. Not as classy as your writing, though. Congratulations!
