Linda Oliver Hi Tim

Many thanks for this. It's a great offer. The weather's set to turn cold, so this weekend's an ideal time to burrow into an engaging page turner!

Tim Hi to my friends! Just a quick update to say 'thanks' to my beta readers for their feedback on the first three chapters of DEVIL GATE DAWN. I've made some changes and have now finalised it. I've also submitted it to Amazon for consideration for their Amazon Scout promotion programme for first novels, whereby readers vote by nominating books on the programme they like, and after 30 days Amazon choose the most popular and publish them! I'll let you know if I'm selected...
