At the same time, a lot of us are at risk of losing incomes, so if you don’t already have a stupidly large book stash like me, you don’t necessarily want to fork out for […]

Ten eBooks Return!

Last year, my publisher’s distributor went kaput. Some quick work saved my ebooks from being swallowed in the process, but it’s taken several months of wrangling to get the titles back onto Amazon! (Well, for some reason Expendable still isn’t there, but it’s shown up on other, related platforms so it should follow soon.) I’m particularly delighted that the Duo […]
