The Doorway and Other Stories is now available in paperback:
Here are fourteen of my favorite stories, and since my favorite genre is science fiction, they are mostly SF except for The Princess Quest, a tongue-in-cheek sword and sorcery epic, and Old Rex, a ghost story. They’ve all been published elsewhere, except for Royal Guardians; this is its first time in print. If you like reading about aliens, time travel, symbiotes, and humans searching for a home, family, their own bodies, etc., check it out here: http://www.amazon.com/Doorway-Other-Stories-Joy-Smith/dp/1492857599/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1384783638&sr=1-1&keywords=The+Doorway+and+Other+Stories
I’m adding my new ebook to Kindle Direct Select; this’ll be my first time for that. My cover uploaded to Kindle on the first try! I’d forgotten to check the meaurements, so I’m glad I didn’t have to resize it, as I’ve had to do before. Now I have to proofread and tweak the text. Btw, my cover only showed up in black & white. It was always in color before. It must be because it’s the preview. Here’s the cover in color:

Here’s the latest review of Pretty Pink Planet:
Review by: Vincent Miskell on Oct. 25, 2011 :
If you like your aliens exotic and your humans adventurous, then Pretty Pink Planet is for you. Lori’s mission as an agent of SOESFOL (Search Out and Establish Sentient Forms of Life) almost immediately puts her face to face with an assassin. She is seconds from death—with only the bizarre ocean life of the flamingo-pink planet to help. But can they?
Smith has an uncanny talent for portraying quirky aliens, who are both strange and familiar at the same time—or more precisely, the familiar turns suddenly eerie in this story. Lori’s alien companion and translator, Chiing, is both amusing and seriously mysterious. Warning: once you’ve read Pretty Pink Planet, you’ll want to continue the adventures with Lori and her alien companion Chiing in Hot Yellow Planet, which is also available for science fiction readers who are fascinated by intelligent alien life.
