Hi Jill,
So sorry I didn't see this message before, I don't get over here very often. I have never promoted my work with speaking engagements, but I do promote my books on YouTube in videos. Good luck with your books, too. Jill. Thank you for the question. (less)

Hi Elsa,

Thank you!! Ominous Angel should have been ready to publish in the first week in April, but I got ill at Christmas and I wasn't able to finish it. I'm getting better now, so I'm back writing it. I'm hoping to have it ready in about three weeks. I hope. I'll message you as soon as it's available. Thank you for asking and for your fabulous review of Book One Ominous love. ♥
