Kindle Unlimited: A Reminder

A second post of the day, as it is a promo piece, but just a reminder, that if you have Kindle Unlimited you can read any of my two and a half books for free on Amazon. (I say 'and-a-half' because I have a story in the new anthology 'Burning'). It's £7.99 a month, and... Continue Reading →
