My sci-fi short story, "Life Sentence" is out and available in various online book stores.

@jwynia Hey! Curious: I don’t know anyone selling short fiction online. How is that working out for you?

@markmcelroy It's been in part a way to get familiar with the self-pub ecosystem. I sold 55 copies in the first few weeks that story's been out there. Which has been more than most expected when they heard I was going to try.

@jwynia Man, that’s great! I’d love to hear more about the experience sometime — things you liked, didn’t like, etc. Do you mind sharing how much of the cover price goes directly to you? (If I ask things that are too personal, please just say, “Whoa, man, none of your business.”)

@markmcelroy Also, after reading your "About" on your site, the novel series I'm outlining may interest you too. It's a humanist monk solving murder mysteries on a space station.


@jwynia Intriguing! That’s got, like, four of my favorite things: humanism, monks, murder, and space!
