You CAN buy my book on Amazon, Borders, Booksamillion etc so I responded accordingly. However it's a collection of short stories and was published by Publish America which is (though they confidently claim otherwise) a glorified vanity press company so I usually don't think of myself as a published author. Frankly I don't even own a copy of my book.
Big Grin
I have several novel length stories I've been working on for years but can never seem to find the time to make much headway.

I am a member of the Writer's Circle Forum here at the watch but I haven't spent much time there in the past year or so.

Well. I wasn't quite sure how to answer this.

I've got a book available from Amazon (altho it's out of print), but it's not a novel.

I've got two short stories available at calderwoodbooks.com. (Thanks again, Joy! Love grin )

I've written several novels but so far none's been published. So that's what I picked....

Don't have the patience for writing novels. Laughing Published some poetry, but apart from the ones in the KW anthology, I have no idea where one could get a copy of the others. (Like Tom, I have never owned a copy of anything in which I have been published.)

I don't know if DotD PMd either yet, but if not, information about Accessing the Writers Circle Forum is in A&S.

I simply gave them all away and never bothered to replace them.
My rights revert back to me after 7 years. The book was published in 2005. When I get my book back I plan a re write. Smile

I think you should look over both your books. There's an obvious error on the cover of Flower Of Doom, claiming I co-wrote it, when clearly I am not a writer.

I think the "Danny Southard" listed as co author on Flower of Doom was a psudonym used by popular sci fi and fantasy writer Dan Pigeon. At least that is what I would think if I didn't know the truth. Big Grin

The truth, as in Pigeon can't write under his own name until he gets out of that contract with Thorasic? Or the truth that Pigeon, who never got along with me, and who also knows of my disdain for writers (mostly because of my disdain for him), knew it would frost the hell out of me if he used that particular pen name? Or maybe the truth about whether or not you really know the truth? Personally, I think you can't handle the truth!

I wrote a novel once... about 15 years ago.

It's printed out and sitting in a box on a shelf with a large note "OMG - Needs a rewrite!!!" on top of it. Just wanted to remind myself not to think it was done or anything Wink
