I haz new stories out.
With indie publishing, whether anyone actually reads it is in the hands of the readers themselves.
There are many ways for readers to discover short stories. Amazon and Barnes&Noble are quickly adding “short story” categories to their bestseller listings. Mind Games has been on these lists almost from when it was first published in May. When it was FREE, it was often on the front page of Amazon’s top 100 SF list. So I know that some readers discovered that short story independent of the Mindjack series. That may be true for these stories as well, or readers may click through the links at the back of my books and discover them that way. Or perhaps they’ll stumble upon them when searching for “neuropunk” – a term I just made up, but I’m rather fond of, so I put it in the tags for The Handler and The Scribe.
Maybe these shorts will expand my digital footprint or maybe they’ll just be fun for fans of the series. I know they were fun for me, and that counts for something as well.
