Erisín is a haunted city, and her specters are hungry. When demons prowl the streets of Oldtown, preying on the poor and the weak, a young actor must face the ghosts of his past and of his family to protect his new home.

"Bone Garden" is a novelette set in Erisín following the events of The Bone Palace. It was originally published in Subterranean's A Fantasy Medley 2 (ed. Yanni Kuznia) in 2012. It's now available on Kindle and Smashwords.

If anyone has any other platforms or file types they prefer, I can make it more widely available. This is my first attempt at self-pubbing anything, so feedback is appreciated.

Wow. Purchasing from Smashwords is easy. Figuring out how to get the book file on my phone and how to access it, since my Nook was stolen, was not so easy. Although, it would have been had I realized all I needed was the Smashword app.

I could have purchased your story at Amazon, of course, but as I understand it, Smashwords give authors a bigger percentage, so I buy from them whenever it's an option.

Thank you! Yes, Smashwords does have better royalties, and seems generally friendlier. I'm not fond of Amazon, but in this case they seem like too large a market to ignore.

I have no experience self-publishing, so I have no relevant advice, but I hope it sells: I am very fond of that story. I can promote it if you like. Technically I die in it!

As far as self-pubbing on Amazon goes, I have a Very Useful Cheatsheet of advice about keywords etc, practically guaranteed to have more people find your book. Send your email to chaz at chazbrenchley dot co dot uk, and I will pass it along.
