Hot Time wrap-up

The “Hot Time” novella went dark last night around 5pm Eastern (with one person getting their purchase in quite literally at the last minute: I was taking the Paypal links down as the payment came in!).

This whole project has been an experiment in selling to a direct market. I pretty much think of this as patronage: the people who bought this story made it possible for me to write something that would not otherwise exist–and believe me, this story was one I have known for years *happened* and have wanted to tell, and yet also one which I very possibly never would have made time to write, had I not been paid to do so. So now I’ve got thoughts and commentary about the whole project, which I shall stick Collapse )
