Announcing Pre-Sales for Miscellany II

January 3, 2022

Admit it, you’ve never heard of Miscellany II. In fact, with few exceptions, I’m guessing you’ve never heard of Miscellany I! (Review coming tomorrow.)

If you’ve followed me for any time at all, you might want to check out Miscellany II. It’s an anthology filled with 11 stories from various genres. Included is a short story called “The Mercy System,” by Rodney M. Bliss.

We (the authors) have been working on this for may pandemic-affected months. It will drop on January 12, 2022. But, the pre-order prices is cheaper.

How much cheaper?

Sorry, I have no idea. But, less. Definitely less.

The reason it’s called Miscellany is because the collection spans multiple genres. My particular story is Science Fiction. A lonely space engineer has only the ship’s AI for company. He’s bored, but I’m assured by multiple beta readers and my long-suffering editor James Elliot, that the story is anything but boring.

So, if you want to support this blog I’d love it if you clicked on this link and ordered a copy. I’ll keep writing whether you click this link or not. And with 11 authors, my share of the royalties won’t let me quit my day job. But, the most important reason to click this link (it goes to an Amazon page, BTW. . .it’s safe to click this link) you will not only be supporting writers and a small publisher, but you will get over 200 pages of REALLY interesting and entertaining stories.

It’s really for you that we created the work behind this link.

And those of you who asked me to let you know the next time I had something in print. . .I mean other than the blog. . .this is it: me letting you know. . .you should click this link.

Stay safe

  1. only 7 uses of Link? wow, so restrained 😉

    and clearly an exclusive of that Big River in South America, as it isn’t listed on my usual e-book supplier. though looking for it finds more than a few other interesting things that were worth looking at.
    So I guess it is time to renew my recently expired credit card info with that ebook vendor that wasn’t in Canada when I started reading them.
    Because I so want to see what influence James Elliot has had with the story.

    • Well, I didn’t want to come off as desperate. I could edit it and add a few more if you think it will hold a couple more. ?

      The book will also be available elsewhere, but Amazon is where we are doing pre-orders.

      • well 7 is such a nice number, we probably want to avoid a bakers dozen, and the lovely 42 would be just so Maxim 37

        Do you know if Miscellay II will be on Kobo this month? or is it a 6 month exclusive as I’ve seen before
