Naked Dead Guy In A Box.

News and Updates
My teammate, Matthew, published his first short story.  I'm so very proud! Here's the description:  On the first day of his new career in the embalming room for a family-owned funeral home, Jason is given his first assignment - ship a dead guy to California. When he recognizes his “shipment,” Jason wonders how they both got there.

Thank you in advance. (If this goes well, maybe we can get him to publish some more.)

Long time, no type--on here anyway. I've been super productive lately.  Here's what been going on: New Children's Book Launched Today Fernando Learns About Sharing officially launched!  This is our (my and Duncan's) fourth Fernando the Cat book.  Each one gets better and better. Making children's books is way fun, and you should try it. All of our children's books are $10.99 until the 5th.  At which time, the prices will increase to $12.99.  Just a friendly heads up.  (wearemakingstories.com) SciFi Book to Come Last month, I dedicated all of my spare time to writing a soft sci-fi that I've wanted to write for a while.  I am happy to report that the first official draft is complete!  Yay! My plans are to let it rest for up to two weeks.  Part…
