Supersale of A Long, Long Sleep

A Long Long SleepGood news for readers in the US – my first novel, A Long, Long Sleep, is currently on supersale in ebook format: $1.99 instead of $7.99!

See below for links of where to buy, but don’t forget that you, in many cases, don’t need an e-reader to buy and read ebooks. Kindle, for example, have a free app you can download for most devices – phones, computers, and tablets.

Offer ends August 31st 2017

A rebellion may be needed – and that’s where Sleeping Beauty’s daughter comes in . . .
