It is HERE!!!! I have been looking forward to this book ever since the first time I heard mention of this mysterious Mountain Baron with a rocky past. Here's the synopsis (it screams: READ ME!)

As an author, though, it's important to get my name and stories out in the world where more people can become familiar with us. We had the chance to have another book signing at Barnes &… Continue reading Book Signing Experience
