For General Updates

Midnight, review, ficbits

My book Midnight was recently released through LT3:

and it was given an awesome review by the Book Wenches!

Am currently collecting prompts from the Queensland Flood Auction I participated in. It’s a very interesting mix! After the stories are received by their respective winners, I will post them all here ^___^

LT3 has seen some improvements! The front page has changed slightly, and we now have a coming soon page! If you have not already looked, totally scope it out!

Lastly, I added my latest Sunday Snuggles to the ficbits section, a very silly little short about a knight and a priest :3 and an even sillier Cinderella knockoff :3

Story

Wrote a story for my Secret Santa recipient, and now that she has it and approves, I have put it up here for others to read and enjoy ^__^ It is here.

Merry Christmas!

Wow I suck at updating :3

Though, I’m not sure there’s a whole lot going on atm. All of this is old new, alas.

For those that love fairytales and may not have yet noticed (though you probably have), LT3 has re-released my original book of Fairytales Slashed, and put out a second book with four novella-length tales by me and Sasha L. Miller ^__^ They are here

LT3 is also doing an awesome holiday thing for subscribers! The stories are written by me, Sasha L. Miller, and Jaime Riordan.

Holiday Treats cover

In the spirit of the season, and in thanks for your marvelous support, Less Than Three is offering to our serial subscribers thirty-one days of stories. Every day throughout the month of December we will be posting seasonal shorts—thirty-one cute, fluffy bits of seasonal romance for you to enjoy!

Stories range from five hundred to a thousand words, and on Christmas day you may just find a little extra. Stories vary wildly from the familiar to the new, from contemporary to fantasy.

LT3 has also wrapped up our call for submission for Bad Moon Rising and put out a call for a new anthology:

Something Happened on the Way To Heaven
Something Happened on the Way to Heaven

Less Than Three Press is pleased to announce open submissions for our new anthology, Something Happened on the Way to Heaven:

Archangels. Guardians Angels. Cherubim. Angels of death, wrath, vengeance, love, peace, and hope. Fallen Angels. Nephilim. The lore of angels is wide and varied, from battles lost and won, to duties fulfilled and failed, from men raised up to their ranks, and angels banished forever from the heavens. They can be fierce warriors and gentle guides, heralds of joy and tragedy. They are beings of fearsome power, and the highest of servants.

But what else can angels be? What happens when they soar too high, or dive too low? Are they flawless in their servitude, or cursed and blessed with free will? Let your mind soar, and bring us your tales of what happens when angels stray off course…

See Submission Guidelines for more detail!

Next, if you want a nice hit of cute and fluffy every Sunday, there’s a place for that :3 Come read, write, and enjoy the overwhelming amounts of sap with us ^__^

And finally, I have tweaked my webpage slightly re: the menu. I think it will be much easier to deal with now ^__^ And hopefully I’ll be adding new stuff before long. Ciao!

Wincon & other things

First off, Less Than Three Press is going to be at Wincon this year. We’ll be selling some of our print books, including The Bastard Prince, The Missing Butterfly, Embrace, Magic & Mischief, Midsummer Days, and Living Words (by Sasha L. Miller).

The editor in Chief will be arriving Thursday, the rest of us late Thursday night ^__^ We’ll probably nearly always be in the consuite, if you would like to drop by and see us (and buy a book or two :3).

In other news, I’ve been writing random fairytales here and there the last couple of weeks. I’ve not yet transferred them to my webpage, but you can find them on my LJ. I also have written a little short story, and a few Midsummer Baker drabbles.

When I get back from Wincon, I’ll transfer them properly to my LJ. Until then, they’re pretty easy to find:

Fairytales
Short story and baker drabbles

various and sundry things

For those that subscribe to LT3, but may have wandered away, Bound is now complete. It will be available as a free download for subscribers next week, and then goes to the ebook store. Replacing it will be Dance in the Dark, which I posted a snippet of ages ago, and most will recognize it as obviously being in the same verse as Dance with the Devil. Which, speaking of DwtD, it is undergoing a rewrite ^__^ The rewritten first story has obviously been here for awhile, but I am about a third done with the entire thing. It should be available in a couple of months (sadly, I was not able to have it ready in time to be released alongside the start of DitD).

Also, for those that did not notice, I added a story here on the website: The Assignment. It’s for the kinky fantasy community, written in honor of its inception, so please read the warnings before you read the story, as it will definitely not be to everyone’s tastes.

My sister also started a new LJ community, 3 is Better Sex, and I wrote a story in honor of that opening as well. Midsummer Baker, which obviously takes place in Midsummer :3 For those that noted them in Kirby’s story, this story addresses the Withers boys :3

I also wrote a cute, silly little fairytale that is here for now, though eventually I will probably move it to the website.

Next up, I’ve updated the ‘WIPs’ page, since it’s well past outdated, and I always meant to change out the snippets and as usual always forget. Finally remembered. So check those out if you’re inclined :3 Snippets include a mix of stuff unseen before, and things I have posted to LJ: Tarnished Knights (new medieval style fantasy story), an unnamed tentacle story, Speak to Me (a Tavamara-verse story), By the Book (new fantasy short story), The Duke’s Bonded (new novel-length fantasy story), an unnamed vampire-ninja/incubus story (from Behind the Mask verse), and Impractical (an arranged marriage type story).

Also, for anyone who had not noticed, my old book of short stories has been released under LT3. For those that already have it, nothing has changed minus minor edits. Like most other old stuff of mine, we’re just transferring it to publication by LT3 ^__^ The awesome cover was done by Lainey Durand. You’ll be seeing more of her stellar work in the future on LT3.

Lots of Stuff

Drabbles
This past weekend was a three day long Day of Porn :3 Rykaine has created a Master List here. Go enjoy! One of my contributions, Texas Rock, spawned additional works. To read all four of those, go here ^__^ Eventually I will add them to the website, I think there are some other stories I said I’d add, too. Maybe this weekend.

Credit Cards now accepted
LT3 is pleased to announce that we now accept credit cards! You can now use your MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express cards to purchase ebooks and to pay for your serial subscriptions. As part of this upgrade, we’ve implemented the price change outlined in a previous post. Most ebook pricing has increased by $0.50 to $1.00, and the monthly serial subscription has increased by $0.30. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any trouble with purchases using your credit card.

More subscription options!
We now offer two additional payment plans for our serial fiction subscription, giving you three options for subscribing to LT3. You can pay $3.25 once a month, $18.60 every 6 months, or $35.40 once a year.

Gulf Oil Spill Fund
To launch our Charity project, LT3 is donating $2 from every purchase of Dire Straits, a new ebook from Megan Derr, to the Gulf Oil Spill Fund put together by the Greater New Orleans Foundation. To learn more about the Gulf Oil Spill Fund and the Greater New Orleans Foundation, click the image below.

Less than a century ago, the world was a dangerous place. Monsters ran wild, and the only thing more dangerous was the humans attempting to control them. The chaotic lands were eventually tamed by a group of people who came to be known as the Crown, and they formed a government that helped to maintain peace in the untamed lands.

Bannick Poore is one such maintainer of peace, an infamous Priest with guns at his hips and a blood red collar around his throat. He is equal parts mage and gunslinger, and it is his sworn duty to uphold the law and drive back the monsters that still crop up in a land that is still learning to be civilized…

LT3 Changes, and a drabble

First, added my most recent Prisoner drabble here.

Next, and more important, LT3 is going to be undergoing some changes in the next month (c/ped from the LT3 Community:

LT3 Press is pleased to announce we’re going to be adding credit cards to our payment options in the next few weeks! This process will not interrupt your service or any existing subscriptions set up through PayPal. To offset the costs incurred by this new feature, we will unfortunately be raising our prices slightly. Most ebook prices will raise by $0.50 – $1.00 and subscriptions fees will raise by $0.30 (to $3.25).

Note that if you have a subscription payment set up at the current rate of $2.95, this will not change! The new subscription pricing will affect new subscriptions only.

The new pricing will go into effect on July 21, 2010. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the admin.
