The bookwork is killing me

Keeping track of 1,100+ short stories that have been published or accepted and are awaiting publication is a time-consuming task. Unfortunately, things sometimes fall through the cracks.

For example, today I learned that two stories were reprinted in 2013. I'm unsure if I was unaware of it at the time or if I knew, forgot, and failed to record the information in my files.

Regardless, my stories "In Love With the Easter Bunny" and "Easter Magic" both appear in the anthology Enchanting Easter.
