In which I read for you from my new book, Defy or Defend. Dimity’s story, Gentle Reader, here at last!
In this video I spend the first 15 minutes reading from Defy or Defend so you can hear what it sounds like in my head and then there’s a Q&A.
I drop some hints about the audio for this book, characters from other books making appearances, and what’s going on with Enforcer Enigma and Heroine’s Journey releases.
