Wow. It's been quite a ride, having my short story, One Cool Cat, published as part of the Christmas anthology, Fifty Shades of Santa.

It's been fun, watching people's reaction to the title Fifty Shades of Santa. You don't need to be embarrassed if you're caught reading Welkin Press's Fifty Shades -- they're romance stories for the "rest of us".

One Cool Cat is the new name for the cat featured in the story -- when the story begins, and a stray cat tries to move into the household, Dennis rules that the cat's name is Outside. What kind of a cat does Dennis think it is?

WOW! 78 "likes"

As of today, Fifty Shades of Santa had 78 "likes" on the Amazon page.

That ain't shabby, seeing as how the Christmas Season is over. Publisher Pat Smith had a great idea, but many things conspired to keep Fifty Shades of Santa from being available to the buying reading public until merely hours from December 25. Ah, but we can dream about what heights of sales it might reached, given more advance timing (and less hassle from Amazon).
