Short Stories & The A.S. King Omnibus Project

Some of you who know me know that I don't just write YA-ish historical/contemporary/dog training guides. I started out writing adult fiction and continue to write literary short fiction. Though these are literary stories written with adults in mind, many of them cross over for a YA audience, and so, I have been trying to compile a linked list to the stories that are online for my sidebar. I've also written a bunch of articles about writing, and I've been interviewed a bit, and I'd like a place to house those links, too. These ideas have bloomed into the A.S. King Omnibus, which I've been officially procrastinating on for about two months. So, I figure the best way to work on this is to do it in baby steps. Today, I will make the Short Story List, Part One. Before I do, I need to give some shouts out to people. Check out this review over at For the Love of Books. How cool is this?
"To be completely honest, I almost didn't read D100D because of all the hype around the blogosphere, I was scared to read it and be that one person who didn't enjoy the novel. I mean what book could really be so good that every single reader loves it? So instead of ditching it completely, I bought the book and forced my little brother to read it. Him and I have very similar personalities so i decided that if he liked the book I would read it. Well, he loved it. In fact, he nagged at me every ten minutes until I finally agreed to read it."
Well, Taylor, not every reader has loved it, but many have, and I'm grateful that you finally tried it, and so pleased that you liked it! Thanks for dropping by the blog last week & saying so. (And thank your brother for me, too! :) ) And here's another review from another wicked-awesome reviewer at Fire Must Burn who I had the pleasure of meeting at one of my events last month. And OO! A cool interview in which I reveal my writing secrets! Now, on with the list.
