Arggghhhhh. Hey Sandy. I just found this. I'm an idiot.

THE UNSEEN series is currently a Trilogy: Book 2 is CELESTE and is available now, though it's slated for release on the 14th. Amazon has all the power. Book 3 is called DAVID and is scheduled for 2016. No exact date yet.

There's an ARC give-away coming up this week for CELESTE. And there's another one for release copies on my website.

I really loved Karla Jay’s use of an accurate speech therapist to bring to life this cozy whodunnit. Compelling characters and places, real problems and a solid romantic undertones makes this a winner. I look forward to reading the next.
