I began my career writing historical romance under the name Cynthia Sterling. I’ve regained the rights to those books, long out of print, and over the next few months plan to release them as ebooks. The first title, Patchwork Hearts, is available now from Amazon and Smashwords. If you’re a fan of Americana or Western historicals, or you’re merely curious about where I started out, pick up your copy here or here.


Basement Stories publishes short stories (primarily science fiction and fantasy, but also “anything that’s good”) under 6000 words.  They pay 1 cent a word and accept reprints and simultaneous submissions. Check their guidelines for more details.
