I thought, what if a man got a call from the police that his wife and daughter had been in an accident, only the man didn't have a wife or daughter!

Or maybe he just didn't know he had a wife and daughter...

How I Distribute Digital Review Copies

Distributing digital review copies–where to start? One of the many struggles authors face in today’s publishing world is how to get advance copies of our ebooks to reviewers.
