Great news! The hockey romance anthology I told you about last time is now available for purchase through Republicapress.com – click on the link to the right to go right to my page there. The compilation with Eve McFadden is titled “Melting the Ice” and features four stories previously posted on Lit, that some of you may have seen before. If not, now’s your chance to buy and read the stories for the first time.
Eve and I each wrote two stories. Her two contributions are first in the book. The first one is “Ghosts of the Forum” and it was an award-winning submission on Lit last year, I believe. The second one is “Game Misconduct,” which is my favorite of the two, personally. 😉
For my part, I chose “Tip of the Iceberg” and “Uncovering the Ice.” Both have been reworked extensively, and for the better, I assure you. You will see the differences if you’d read them before. I was thinking earlier today that I might do a post at some later date with the ‘cut scenes’ from each story, just for fun. I was particularly attached to some of the larger scenes that were cut from each so I’d love to share them some day.
In other news, my full-time job is keeping me busy and in the best way. Over this past weekend, the company I work for, a small, family-oriented, tight-knit company, had a very big night on Saturday. We attended an awards show and won a very prestigious award. I can’t give details because I want to preserve some anonymity here. 🙂 You understand, right? Thought so. Anyway, it was a huge deal for us all and I’m still reeling from the sense of accomplishment and recognition. THEN, to top it off, our book gets released today??? If I get one more hunk of good news chucked at me, I might just keel over. No more stories…
Naaaaawwww. I’m just kidding.
Now I’m off to submit the next chapter to “Breaking Through the Ice.” It should – all things considered – be on-line at Lit by Thursday but keep an eye out for it.
Oh, and one other thing, this is strange but my story submission “Trading Ice” was taken off my Lit page for some reason. I think the error may have been mine. I did recently remove several stories – which I’m sure a few of you noticed – but “Trading Ice” was not one of them. I’ll have a quick look over my copy and resubmit so it should be reposted soon. It was an anonymous poster who pointed that out, so if it was YOU, thank you!! I might never have noticed otherwise.
OK, seriously. I have to go now. Stop prolonging the conversation. 😉
Love you guys! Thanks for all your comments and subscriptions. You know I love hearing from you all! Now get out of here and go buy my book. Luv ya!
Take care and happy reading!
