Cold Inside

Cold Inside is a forthcoming novel scheduled for release on Friday December 1st, 2017. Although I am still doing everything I can to get this book picked up by a literary agent or independent publisher, I am also making sure that I am able to self-publish it this year if I’m unsuccessful with the ‘traditional publishing’ plan.

The paperback version is available now, mostly as a means of getting an Amazon ‘look inside’ option while the Kindle version is on pre-order. The two formats aren’t linked yet, because it isn’t an instantaneous process, but here’s a mock-up of the paperback from the KDP book preview.
