New Release!

[image error]



If we were trying to have coffee today I’d no doubt be all excited! It’s release day for my latest novel. PENUMBRA.





Some people make a big deal about release day. For me it is a bit anticlimactic…okay, it’s official. Distribution is a little wonky today too. This month my publisher is expanding the print copies into a new supplier. We have been exclusively Amazon for a while. Now Amaz
