I love my new book 1KRV5 and I don't want to see it languish, but I am not a salesperson. I'm not famous, I have no marketing team. It's just me - and you. I need word of mouth - specifically your word of mouth - to let people know about it.

If you've enjoyed my other works, such as the Pagan Gods 'verse, If You Were an Ocean, My Brother the Fishstick, or any of my many other stories, I think you'd enjoy this one. There's a humanoid cyborg with metal wings, a lonely scientist, and a remote manor, all of it with a bit of Victorian flair. Think Frankenstein, but with a beautiful monster that's more Terminator than Walking Dead.

Imagine a world where genetic experimentation is a reality, common enough that the government had to step in to regulate it. Mikkel's creations are as illegal as they are magnificent, none so miraculous as his most beloved creation 1KRV5, more affectionately known as Icarus. Beautifully designed, but fundamentally flawed, Icarus serves as Mikkel's companion, both in his laboratory and in his bed. This is the story of Icarus and his creator, two beings irrevocably drawn to what they are sure they can never have - the freedom of the open sky and the love of a mechanical creature.

If you're interested in buying 1KRV5, it's only $2.50 for an ebook or $5 for a paperback at this site. It's also available at Amazon and All romance e-books, but the price is a bit higher. If you have read it, please leave a review or rating, if at all possible. You can review it on Amazon, All Romance, or Goodreads. Even just spreading the word about it would help. The more people know about it, the more their curiosity will be aroused and maybe, just maybe, they'll want to read it.

There are over 900 of you out there who liked something I wrote at one point. I'd really appreciate it if you could follow me into my non-Supernatural writing, as well. Word of mouth is my best hope to get news of 1KRV5 beyond the walls of my home.

You can even imagine Jared and Jensen in the title roles. I know I do. It's a great way to get the writerly juices flowing!

Really looking forward to the Pagan Gods rewrite! Any idea when that's coming out?

Thank you for looking!

Pagan Gods will take while, I'm afraid. At least a year to rewrite what I plan to be the first book since it needs massively reworked. Then I need to shop it around and keep my fingers crossed an agent likes it enough to sign. Then it would need to be shopped around to publishers.

Do you have any suggestions for Twitter? I don't have a Facebook account, but I do have a Twitter.
