Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

eQuill Welcomes me, Michael, with Press Release

with 5 comments

Lawrence T. at eQuill Publishing has graciously welcomed me and my late husband, Michael, with the following press release, available at this link:

Here’s the release in toto:

e-Quill Publishing is pleased to welcome two new authors, Barb Caffrey and her late husband, Michael B. Caffrey. Both are talented writers and have a large following world-wide. They have agreed to list some of their works with e-Quill Publishing.

In addition, it is now much, much easier to find sample pages for our stories — as you’ll see if you follow this link to Michael’s “Columba” collection:

The other stories all have sample pages laid out in this way, so it should be much easier now for people to see a bit of Michael’s (and my) writing before you buy.  (“Try before you buy” isn’t just the motto for buying a used — excuse me, pre-owned — car.)

There even was a very wonderful comment someone left that said he (or she) had loved Michael’s “Maverick” story “Dark and Stormy Night,” that I hadn’t anticipated.  This commentator said he (or she) would recommend any of Michael’s writing, or mine (or, presumably, both of us together).

eQuill is still a very young e-book publisher, folks, so there still may be snags as to how to find sample pages; please let me know if you continue to have problems there, and I will keep Lawrence (the publisher at eQuill) “in the loop.”  (Because being out of the loop certainly won’t help.)  But as the “Columba” stories show, they are there, and I find that very encouraging.

As for anything else, there may be more good news to report in the upcoming days, but I do not want to jinx it.  Let’s just say that I’m glad my and Michael’s writing is starting to gain (or re-gain, in Michael’s case) a following, and happy am I that this is so.


Note: if you wish to read my or Michael’s stories in order to review them, please let me know.  I believe Lawrence will be putting something up at eQuill for reviewers to let him know down the line, but for now, as the company is new, there’s no real mechanism except to go through the individual author(s).  Just know that I will be glad — thrilled, even — to provide a copy for review.

  1. This is a lovely development, Barb. Those of us who have been frustrated over the years by our inability to support your writing will now be able to do just that. I know I will be buying some just as soon as I can afford it!

    • Thanks, Ross. Please tell everyone you know, on or off of the Bar, that these stories are available. I know I had somewhat of a following, but Michael had a huge one — there has got to be a way to help these stories “get legs” and draw in people who’ve never heard of Barb or Michael Caffrey but love good writing.

  2. Got them all, Barb. I’m looking forward to getting home so I can download them 🙂

    Got Elfyverse too while I was there.
