Today Karl and I received our first royalty check from Space Pirates. Yippee! It may not be a big check, but it's the first royalty check that either of us has ever received, so it's very special. And, how cool is it, to get something like that on Christmas Eve?

I've just received a notice from David Lee Summers, the editor of the Space Pirates anthology in which my last story (a collaboration with my husband) was published. He was passing along the information that you can now order the book directly from Flying Pen Press and receive a Friends of Space Pirates discount that will give you 20% off Space Pirates, any time, any quantity). Just enter BAKY0Q (that's a zero) when you place your order.

My husband, Karl, and I are very pleased to announce the upcoming publication of our story, "Ship's Daughter," in the anthology Space Pirates, edited by David Summers and published by Flying Pen Press. This is our first collaboration on a story and we're very excited about it.

The book should be available in August of this year, but in case you'd like to pre-order a copy, contact me and I'll email you a PDF form which gives you a 20% discount from now until July 31st. We'd be honored and delighted to sign your copy for you at the first opportunity; if you prefer to send us a copy to sign, please contact me to request details on how to do this. If we haven't seen you before then, look for us at TusCon 2008 in Tucson next November.

P.S. My apologies to those of you who received my email announcement, which I sent out before deciding to post here, as well.

P.P.S. Yes, I suppose it's a little silly to make such a big deal of a short story, but it's our first! *g*
