Revenants Abroad Free through December 31

I decided to make Revenants Abroad free through the end of the year on Smashwords. Amazon doesn't allow a price below .99 unless I put it into the KDP Select program, which I can't do right now.

I can't say enough good about "A (Unauthorized) Writer's Guide to Harry Potter." I was fortunate enough to get an ARC of this from the author.

I'll give it a week, and then the whole thing comes down so I can make it … Continue reading Revenants Abroad – Chapter 27
