Mitzi's Exit - Smashwords
I'm still working on the first large collection. I've found a better way to get all the stories together: Scrivener. It works very well on a collection of short stories. So when I decide to print them, the front and back matter are already in place.
Saves me some work.

We are thrilled to see how many copies are going out to readers all over.
PS - "Doyle Road Bridge" the first collection has stalled because I'm working on proofs for the paperback of my first novel. This is a delay, not a derailment. Tkx - KJ

Although I do not know you personally, your art work on the covered-bridge cover for my first book is inspiring enough to entice a reader to turn its first page. Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I have a long-term love affair with the covered bridge, having lived a long life in Ashtabula County, Ohio, where covered bridges abound. There they found that a covered bridge far outlasts the steel bridge, cost less to install, and beautifies its surroundings. Thanks again. I. C. Talbot.

I'm frustrated that I can't get the software to work right. The learning curve is steep and I'm just not patient enough.

Yes, I've found a proper theme and the right pictures for Irene's collection.
George Ducro has kindly allowed me to use his fabulous photos of Doyle Road Bridge. As you can see, this photo is going to be eye catching!
So the theme will be as follows - Icy Road is the name of the short stories, but the book will be titled after the bridge.

The Amazon UK author page I. C. Talbot - UK was blank until yesterday. The Amazon US page has been up for weeks - I. C. Talbot - US.
I released 'Death of a Family' on Smashwords without all the addresses in it.
I don't have templates for her books, though I have a bio template.
All these small details add up - can readers find the links to the stories? What is the best way to find all the stories - even as I add more?
All this takes time - and organization to make it more effective. Since I've done it once already, it's faster.
