First, Amazon has removed the pirated copy of “50 Years Waiting”! I am so pleased, and want to offer my sincere thanks to everyone who left comments here on the blog, and reviews and ‘likes’ on those reviews at the pirated story. Especially I want to mention Dianne Gray, who wrote about this on her site; the outpouring of support was a joy in what was one of the most confusing and distressing moments of my indie career. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, to all who assisted in the cessation of this thievery. And kudos to Amazon, who speedily rectified this situation.
Second, Trash Day!, a collection of short stories, was released today by Top Writers Block. My contribution, “The American Way”, is a poem; I’ve been in a poetic mood as of late. I’ve also been happy for a break from reality, and this gathering of tales, from flash fiction to short yarns in a gamut of genres, entertained and intrigued. All proceeds go to Sea Shepherd, and at two dollars, it’s a great deal. Get yours today from Smashwords, where you can find other fine anthologies by indie authors coming together to share stories and raise funds for the betterment of our oceans and waterways.
