Crossing Over

By "crossing over," I'm not talking about shuffling off this mortal coil. This crossing over refers to my upcoming thriller, The New Neighbor (and if you haven't yet pre-ordered, what are you waiting for? You can buy it here. OK, no more of that).The...

ME ME ME ME ME

Authors HATE self-promotion. They despise posting book photos with links to pre-order, loathe telling you about good reviews, and cringe announcing the deal the publisher is running. Most authors are happy with their laptops, sitting in their little writing room,...
