A native of northern Kentucky, I spent the 1990s in Memphis before moving to New York. I am the author of Why They Cried, an e-book collection of short stories out now from Joyland and ECW Press. The collection includes versions of five stories that were first distributed via Feedbooks--both stories from Single and three from Cassingle--plus five additional stories. My nonfiction and humor pieces, meanwhile, have appeared in Slate, Radar, Print, the New York Daily News, and the New York Post.

I'll take out the extra spaces. A question: I've experimented with distributing ebooks through many ebook sites -- manybooks, bookglutton, etc. -- and every site processes text differently. In this case, I uploaded plain text. Do you recommend cutting and pasting from Word instead? (I tried this and it preserved the paragraph breaks -- w/o spaces -- but seemed to have problems of its own.) What is the optimal solution. Hand-coded HTML?
