I've still got some thinking to do, as I launch this publishing label.

Ice Road Short Stories

Should they just go to e-books and Kindle, or should I send them out to whatever sites will publish them first?

Dean Wesley Smith says fiction are pies in the Magic Bakery. I can sell unlimited 'slices' as I see fit. Hmmm...this is so interesting.

Meanwhile "Turnabout" is on sale at Smashwords for $.99 or free with the code SW100.

Horsewomen of the Zombie Apocalypse

The Emissary - Arrival came back from the proofreader so clean it only took me a couple of hours to make the corrections.

Its staring at me from the other monitor. It WANTS to be published. But there aren't any pre-orders for it. So it has to stay where it is until September 15.

Stay tuned, I'm going to publish a new story: "Dumped" next.

Turnabout - Short Fiction

Coming Soon!

I just finished the edits for 'Turnabout' a short story by I. C. Talbot.

Is turnabout fair play? Growing up, Steve was Stella's best friend, until Trish came along. Now Steve is engaged to Trish and both are off to college. Stella spends a weekend with Trish on campus, discovering that Trish lives a double life.

The hold up at the moment is the cover. So I think the short story should be published to Smashwords tonight.

This will be released with some new back matter - a blurb about Icy Road Publishing will be on the back.

Slow Going

It's been slow - hardly making any progress at all - there have been multiple family illnesses since I. C. passed away.

However, I've found that I do need to create a publishing indentity to publish the rest of Mom's stories.

I started the process a few weeks ago in my head, and have begun the footwork.

There is a Smashwords page now: Icy Road Publishing.
