I just found out that two of my plays are now in the Heuer catalog. I have a whole bunch of plays published by Brooklyn Publishers, and they were acquired a few years ago by Heuer. Many of my plays can work for both catalogs (they hit slightly different markets), and are gradually making their way over. So I was excited today, to discover that my collection of short plays for women, Tightly Bound, is now available from the Heuer site, as is my ten-minute play, David in Goliath. (Check them out. Please. You can read the scripts for free on the site.)

It's always nice to be able to report a little good news. After a fair amount of wrangling, Brooklyn Publishers has published Tightly Bound, which is a collection of eight of my short plays for women performers. The idea is that the group of plays works together to make an entire evening of theatre, with a flexible cast size of 4-18 women. It just went on sale last week, so we'll see how it goes. Some of the plays have done extremely well on their own (Insomnia, Stop Rain, Ship of Fools), and we'll just have to see if they can pick up even more productions as a group. (Fingers crossed.) It's a nice set, in that it works pretty well both for students and for theatre companies.
Also, Playscripts has decided to bundle my short play, Christmas Breaks, as part of Great Short Plays, Volume 1. It just went on sale this week (and sold at least one copy today). I'm in good company, with other plays by Stephen Belber, Brooke Berman, Judy GeBauer, Barry Hall, J. Holtham, David Riedy, D. Tucker Smith, John Walch, and Sheri Wilner. This is a good experiment, to see if this is a more productive way to sell short plays. I hope it is.
