Tales from the Backlist
If you like short stories and variety in your reading, give this book a try. It's a collection of short fiction by nineteen authors representing various genres, including science fiction, fantasy, mystery, contemporary romance, regency romance, and probably a couple of others I've forgotten.
What these authors have in common is that they (we) are all members of Backlist eBooks, a collection of widely published authors in all genres who are bringing our previously published, out-of-print books back into circulation through self-published ebooks. The group includes bestselling authors and winners of many literary awards, including the Hugo, Nebula, and Rita awards. To help make ourselves better known, we've released Tales from the Backlist, filled with (appropriately enough) backlist short stories.
Tales is now on sale in the Kindle and Nook stores, and Smashwords, in DRM-free editions. Soon it will be in the Sony, Apple, Kobo, and Diesel stores. (No matter what kind of reader you have, or none at all, you can get a format that works for you from Smashwords.)
For a limited time only, the regular price of $3.99 has been knocked down to just $.99 at all stores. Check it out at http://www.backlistebooks.com/2011/11/tales-from-the-backlist/, where you'll find purchase links for the store of your choice.
