One step closer!

Excellent news! A Bitter Harvest is back from editing, and I am in the final stage of preparations for publication. It has taken far longer than I would have liked to get this far, but think it is worth the wait. This novel has taken me to new places, figuratively and literally, an I can’t wait to share it!
