     In the spirit of my New Year's Resolution - to be PUBLISHED in 2011 - and since Across the Galaxy has a few more weeks to go (cover art, etc) before I can upload - here's a sampler to tide you over. My short story, Dreamkiller, is now available on Amazon for $0.99!!!

     I've had this short story floating around out there for submission for a few months now (online magz take a looonngg time to respond) but so far, no luck. Originally I shopped it for publication so that I would have the accolades and recognition behind my name when I queried agents for my novel. But... since I'm self-publishing my novel, I really don't care whether I can say 'I've been published in such-and-such magazine' or not. Hence, why not upload it and make it available to everyone NOW - and start earning a little change. Because to make back what a struggling online mag would've paid me, I'd only need to sell about 40 copies at $0.99 on Amazon.

     So go check me out. Just type 'dreamkiller' into the search engine and scroll down to my story. Yay, so exciting. I am officially a published author. And I couldn't be more excited. PLEASE leave me your comments/reviews here when you're done reading it, and let me know what you think. Happy Reading!


  1. Wow Heather!! That is so exciting!!!!! Congratulations!!!! When I get some time I will read it. How many words is it?

    Again, Congratulations!

  2. about 5000 words. let me know what you think. thanks!

  3. I have both Dreamkiller and ATG. Dreamkiller left me wanting to know "the rest of the story"!! I am currently reading ATG and can't get enough of it! I have realized that you are one of the rare authors that can suck me in and make me actually see the story in my head like a movie being played out as I read it. (not just saying these things because I am your God-Sister, IT'S ALL TRUE!!!)
    Excellent job Heather! I'm excited to see what you put out there next!!
    Lisa :D

  4. awww, lucylou you say such nice things to me! =) I am going to do a part 2 to dreamkiller eventually for that very reason... just have to finish dirty blood first.

    and if you get time, would you be willing to post a review on amazon for me, for either story? thanks!
