Deadly Curiosities the novel is off and running–and getting a strong start from the recent spate of reviews. THANK YOU if you read, blog, review–you help make it possible for writers to keep on writing. I appreciate the kind words on Amazon/Goodreads and all the other online book platforms as well as all the official reviews. It all helps to spread the word!
“Collector” is the newest Deadly Curiosities Adventure short story–here’s the blurb: A Collector’s passion brings death and despair to Battery Row. Cassidy, Teag and Sorren fight for their lives against an ancient spirit, a children’s bogeyman, who has brought her minions with her to help discipline all in her path. It’s .99 on Kindle/Kobo/Nook–here’s the Kindle link
