New e-book - A Jo Durbin Mystery Series

true


What does an author do when she decides to change covers on the way to publication? If she’s me, she just does it! Wiser heads may not agree, but, there… you have it. Did, and done.

“I'm not saying Abbott Computing Services suffered from an acute form of TV demographics, but, how did I get the job? I wasn't under 40. I wasn't anorexic slim.
