I’m so happy that these projects are entering the home stretch. The official release date for both Skinshifter and The Dryad’s Sacrifice will be September 25, 2015 with pre-orders coming later this month. I’ll make an official announcement as soon as pre-orders are available. I can’t wait for you to read them and tell me what you think!

Until next time, may we each rewrite our world for the better!
