Perseverance rocks! The globetrotting suspense novel I began in 2010 has now come to fruition. What began as one novel has evolved into a 5-episode ebook series, and Episode 1, "Abstracted" is available for free download in the Kindle store from today to the end of this week. If you're interested in downloading the book but don't own a Kindle, you can download the Kindle App for your computer or smartphone free on Amazon.
