CAKE in Space: Back from agent, but now I don’t have time for it.
He Said, She Said has a review up. “Though the story intertwines with a hot romance from a budding female author there is enough action to make it an excellent read for either sex.”
SPOILER ALERT! Amazon has posted Changeless cover along with blurb. Blurb gives bits of Soulless away so don’t read if you haven’t read the first book!
Blameless: Now with second beta.

“I would like to find a stew that will give me heartburn immediately, instead of at three o’clock in the morning.”
