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.

Is there going to be any artwork?  More than just the cover I mean.  I'd really like to see how you see the characters.

I was recalling the sold stories mentioned here against the stories heard on the podcast.  It just seemed to me that Jeff was marketing his "Kiddie UD" on Clonepod and with his book deal that was it for UD on EP.

New short samples online from "Bees Do It" and "Nicotine Kisses and Muddy Soles" in audio, on this week's Sci Fi Dig. The samples start at about an hour and twenty minutes into the podcast.

Enjoy, and as always, comments welcome.
