The Long, Short and Just Right

By Gail Z. Martin Since January, I’ve been publishing a new short story on Kindle, Kobo and Nook every month.  Some are in the Jonmarc Vahanian Adventures series, and some in the Deadly Curiosities Adventures series.

If there’s a Steampunk short story, is there going to be a […]
