Happy Submissions Open Month! I hereby announce that submissions are open for our very first anthology, Universe of Attractions! We are looking for Fantasy/Science Fiction/Speculative stories featuring a cross-species romance. Elves may be the champions of interspecies romance, but what about the others? What are some mythological races that usually are passed by? How do Venusians show their love? Do Alpha Centaurians get starstruck? Please follow all guidelines, even the silly one, or your work will be rejected regardless of quality.

There are now ten chapters posted of Step Lightly, Space Kitty. Read along with us, through the Super Secret Download Page, available to newsletter subscribers. If you cannot reach this page, please let us know, and we will send the chapters to you directly.

While you are at it, find us on Facebook, where the Adventures of Little Plague Doctor are posted even more often.

Upcoming Books

To Serve in Heaven, the first book of Alfred D Byrd's The Volant Flyway, is scheduled for release on December 1. They weremade to fly on Mars, but politics and specism left them trapped in a space habitat. Now, with population and tempers rising, things in Volant Habitat are about to explode.

Several shorter pieces set in the T-Space Universe will be finalized, including the long anticipated Step Lightly, Space Kitty. The Captain's greatest treasure has been lost in a game of chance. Can it be returned before the Captain finds out?

Other books will also be featured, so come on in and see what is new!
