F.C. Malby Let me know which books have affected you in a powerful for it's unusual or beautiful setting.

James Dante Yesterday I added my novel, THE TIGER'S WEDDING, to the giveaway list.


message 3: by Christine (new)

Christine I'd like to have feedback on how I did with portraying the setting in Irish Firebrands (there are 51% free previews at Goodreads and at Smashwords).

I'm also looking for Beta Listeners to test the Audiobook edition. Chapters are delivered free via e-mail, in m4b format (compatible with iTunes and other media players).

Thanks!
