$210? 

1400 * 0.15 = 210

Is my math wrong?  'Cause that's a nice sale right there.  That's... well, that's four tanks of gas in your average car, but still, good stuff.

Is PtF a Union Dues, or something independent?  SLMS doesn't look like a Union Dues title, IMO, but maybe it is too?

I can't say much other than, Perchance to Fail will appear in someone else's non-fiction book along with 6-10 other 1000/2000 word stories by me all illustrating specific themes and ideas. I wish I could say more, but I can't until the book is complete and in print.

Fun with Non Disclosure Agreements Smiley

Sweet Like Maple Sugar, on the other hand I can talk about!

It's the third story set in Pleasant Hollow following the zombie apocalypse. The first two were Lilies for Donald and The Marionette, both available to read free at Tales of the Zombie War (www.talezofworldwarz.com).

The Saga of Tam Suji is the second Team Shikaragaki story, it's also the happiest of all the Union Dues tales.

So according to Heinlein, it will be the sleepiest of all the Union Dues stories.

Seriously though, can't wait for more Union Dues.

Clear the mind and as an exercise to be more descriptive and daring with your writing.

I've always found writing erotica to be enjoyable.  I also think fanfic can be a good exercise in getting your writing juices flowing, plus it gets you new readers when you post it on fanfic sites.

When I've got a contract in front of me I will divulge all... but to head off some potential questions -

It will be released as two volumes of Union Dues stories
They have a physical distribution network as well as online space (amazon, etc...)
They want the books available in major bookstore chains
They are about to release their first novella
They want to release both paperback and e-book versions (possibly Kindle as well)
I should see a contract in a month

AWESOMENESS.  Now I will be able to read U.D. at my own pace, and get them all in one place.
