I'm a published author! I have published in print before, but not for awhile.
I just uploaded a short story to Smashwords. It's called Harriet and Her Lost Dog, told from the point of view of an African American 10 year old girl. The great thing about the site is they make your book (short story in this case) into all the e-book formats. You can also read them on your computer.
I'll come back with the link to the short story.
