Getting Back Into Action: First Page Preview from White-Knuckled Fear (Fury 4)

So I’m working on getting back into action with regular social media posts (mostly Twitter, but some in Facebook and working on posting here more) and regular writing.

Upcoming Urban Fantasy

Whew, I am once again way overdue for a more substantive update (okay, ANY update), so I just wanted to give a quick one now to announce the news that I will be indie-publishing an urban fantasy of mine called Reborn in Fire. I absolutely love this book and hope that readers will, too. I am planning to offer this for sale via Kindle (and hopefully some other places) within the next few weeks, so keep your eyes open for that. If this one sells decently, my hope is to then be able to write and...
