Sporty Spec Is Published!

Here I am with the proof copy of Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic, which, it turns out, is now the first official copy! I've just approved and released the book, so Sporty Spec is published!

Right now, the anthology is available for purchase here, but I've acquired a distribution service, so soon Sporty will appear in Books in Print, and eventually will show up at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and the usual suspects.

I've sent out the first couple of contributor's copies, but as there are 42 of these, it will take me a little time to get through the list. After that, I'll tackle the 42 payments.

I want to thank my dear hubby for his technical assistance with the PDFs and a couple of graphics issues. But he's really earned The Good Spouse Medal for putting up with his increasingly stressed and high-strung wife. Thanks, Love!

I've been neglecting to mention the bicoastal book launch party for Sporty Spec, and now seems as good a time as any. Here's the scoop:
