My #fantasy #folkllore #shortstory collection Kateri’s Tales was accepted in #Smashwords premium catalog which means its distribution is expanded to include venues like #Kobo.
I uploaded Kateri Tales: Based on Haudenosaunee Folktales and it’s now live on Amazon Kindle’s Select Program and Lending Library. It will be available in other venues once the 90 day exclusivity period is over.

This is the first of a series of backstory flash fiction pieces for the soft science fiction novel, Bricolage, that I’m editing now.

Rory Jordan will soon be known as the most brilliant brat in the galaxy.
