A Very Important Post

This is a short but VERY IMPORTANT POST!

My short story, One Night Stand, is going  to be part of a big Ninja Writers giveaway next week. There will be a tonne of great authors participating, and lots of stories for you to pick up.


I’m excited. Like super excited. I want you to read One Night Stand now! So here’s the deal. I’ll be sending out a newsletter tomorrow that includes a link where you can get One Night Stand for free. This is only available to subscribers! All you have to do is sign up here, and you’ll get the link tomorrow!

See how easy that is?

Also, I’m super super excited about this cover. Who wouldn’t want to read this?
