March 2011 News - Story for Japan

Those of you who have been following my newsletters for a while know that I previously offered a free story to anyone donating to the relief effort following the Haiti earthquake.

Now I'm offering the same thing for those donating to Japanese earthquake relief. Details follow below.

I'd hoped to have more stories out this month, but two conventions (expected) and two funerals (unexpected) cut into my time more than I'd hoped. Nevertheless, below you'll find links for two stories I've posted in the last month: "Kidnapped by Saurians" and a re-release of "Sisters in Arms." And remember, you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter to get updates between newsletters.

In this edition you'll also find a link to a free Snowraven wallpaper, plus some cover previews for stories that I hope to have out next month.

Also returning are the ever-popular Appearances Calendar and the ever-enticing Editorial Calendar.

With all that waiting for you in the paragraphs to come, what are you waiting for? Get reading!

New cover - FREE story for Japan - THE GIFT OF THE DRAGONS

It seems like disaster never takes a holiday. No sooner do we feel like we may have one under control than another springs up.

To encourage and reward those helping others, I have, in the past, given away a free e-book. This catastrophe will be no different. The story "The Gift of the Dragons" was written in response to the terrible Indian Ocean Tsunami, so it seems only right to give it away to aid disaster response.

This edition, just released, sports a new cover featuring the art at left.

I am giving this away on the honor system. If you have donated to Japan relief -- or New Zealand relief -- you are entitled to the book. (If not, you can still buy it at the regular price.)

The code to get your free story for donating to Japan (or New Zealand) is:


Click on this link to go to Smashwords and get your free copy of "The Gift of the Dragons" - with cool new cover.

Feel free to pass this code -- and the newsletter -- along to other people who have donated to disaster relief.

Out Now! Get your copies today!
