Back in September, I ran a Kickstarter campaign to bring two fantastic collections of short stories to print. If you didn’t get in on the campaign, fear not! The books are now available to the whole wide world.
Amazon may be limiting the printing and shipping of physical books, but you can get these anthologies as e-books for $2.99 each. If you picked up the books during the campaign, why not stop by the pages and leave a review?
