New Digital Short

Happy Friday morning!  Bishop’s Rock, my new digital short from Intrigue, is out today for $1.99.  This is an amnesia story set in the beautiful Texas Hill country.

“There are a lot of things in this world to be afraid of, but a dead body isn't one of them.”
Amanda Stevens, The Restorer

“There was something so primal and hungry about the way he stared down at her..the way their bodies unconsciously strained toward one another as if nothing - not even time, not distance, not even death- could ever keep them apart.”
Amanda Stevens, The Restorer

“I’ve heard people say that the hardest thing in the world is to live with someone you don’t love. But I’ve always thought it would be far more difficult to live with someone who doesn’t love you.”
Amanda Stevens, The Kingdom

C. Amanda, you are one of my favourite new authorsesses; the kind that excite me from page to page and have me wishing the star feedback system went to ten. It would give a better deliniation of books that leave me soaring, versus authors that earned five stars in the meagre system we have. I'm watching for a used copy of "The Prophet" at and found two of your solo stories locally! If you would like to peek at my reviews from time to time, you will surely find your name here. :)
With fondness, Carolyn in Manitoba.

Stan Law A belated thanks for choosing me to be among your friends, Amanda. It may interest you that one of my books: Marvin Clark—In Search of Freedom is now a matching FREE download on Amazon Kindle. Enjoy it while you can. (A little review on Amazon wouldn't hurt either!)
