My new author series over at Heidi Ruby Miller (a.k.a. ambasadora) is called Paths to Publication and will bring back favorite writers with upcoming releases and showcase newer authors and their works.

Here's the premise:

Every writer follows her own path within the publishing industry, which makes for entertaining and inspiring stories off the page. Paths to Publication offers some of those unique perspectives. I hope it also gives us all comfort knowing that our journey as writers is not just the breaks we get, but also the opportunities we take.

First up is Ian Rogers with the release of his short story "Inheritor" in Issue #58 of Cemetery Dance, the Charles L. Grant Tribute Issue. Look for Ian on Wednesday, February 6.
