I mentioned here recently that my story, Crossroads & Carousels, will be published in the Fall edition of The Red Penny Papers. The full Table of Contents for that issue has now been announced:

A Connection to Beyond by Cat Rambo
Breathing Room by Jamie Mason
Fearsome Critters and Friendly Giants by M. Bennardo
Crossroads and Carousels by Alan Baxter
The Extravagant and Venturesome Lives of Woman Pyrates by Katy Gunn

That’s a fine ToC, and one I’m very proud to be in. But wait, there’s more! As you may remember, it was Red Penny Papers who published my novelette, The Darkest Shade Of Grey. As this is their second anniversary short fiction issue, and as I’m a returning author in their pages, they’ve organised a very cool giveaway. Here are the details:

…to celebrate our second anniversary, it seemed appropriate to do a little giveaway. The first two people to purchase The Darkest Shade of Grey and email their receipt to redpennypapers AT gmail DOT com will receive an eBook of Alan’s debut novel, RealmShift.

Ah, but wait, there’s more. Keep sending those purchase receipts, because at the end, we’ll do a drawing for a complete set: both RealmShift and the sequel MageSign.

Happy birthday to us!

I’m obviously a bit biased, but I reckon that’s a bloody good celebratory offer right there. All the details here.

I’ll drop a note here when the issue in question comes out.
