ThongSizedStoriesCoverI’m excited to announce the release date for Thong Sized Stories print and digital editions has been set for Tuesday, September 3rd.  You’ll be able to order paperback copies and/or download to your Kindle and Nook readers!

Keep an eye out here on the Imaginary Playground for more info and direct links closer to the date, plus some supplemental material similar to the extras on movies.

Can’t wait? Have a free story from the collection right now!

Thanks to all of you for your support.  I’m looking forward to sharing new tales with you.

Contest Results: We Have a Winner!

Thanks to everyone who voted in my Thong-Sized Stories contest.  For a few days, each story had the same amount of votes, and I was afraid I’d have to alter the rules and just do a pot-luck drawing of everybody who opted in.  This weekend saw a clear winner pull away from the pack, and that story is, “The Turkey Incident,” which will be free to read for until 9/18/13.

Thong-Sized Stories will be available soon in print and for your e-readers, so be sure to keep up on what’s happening in the Imaginary Playground.

Thanks again for participating!  This was fun, so I’m sure I’ll be doing more contests!

I’m happy to share with you today the cover of my next collection of fiction, Thong-Sized Stories.  The artwork and layout of the book was handled by my amazing wife Margie Markevicius, whose portfolio can be viewed at Margie’s Mark.

Thong-Sized Stories will be available in print and electronically in the coming weeks.  I’ll let you know exact dates when I have them in hand.  In the meantime…

I’m holding a contest!  Below you’ll find the “set list” for the book.  Take a gander and decide which title interests you the most.  Then leave a comment with that title on this post.  On Sunday 8/18, I’ll tally the votes and publish for free the most popular story.  Also, I’ll draw a random name from the winning voters.  This person will receive a free paperback copy of the book, autographed by me.

Be sure to leave a contact method in your comments!  No contact, no chance of knowing if you won.
