Hello again, MT. Since you enjoyed The Slave so much I was wondering if you would be interested in writing a review for Goodreads and Smashwords. It would be much appreciated.

Thank you, MT. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Unfortunately, due to health reasons I've had to cancel the book tour. But the relaunch should be going ahead, one way or another.
