Her Dying Day is out there in the world. Finally. Unbelievably.
And she was a bestseller on launch day.
60 people came to my book launch event at the Barnes&Noble at Congressional Plaza on Tuesday, June 7th. I was flabbergasted and delighted to talk to so many people about who the story of a 24-year-old escapee from a goat commune and her search for answers in the disappearance of Greer Larkin.
People are loving June and her search for Greer Larkin. They are calling Her Dying Day a “twisty page-turner” and “an ideal marrying of the “who-dun-it” genre with wit and comedy.” It’s absolutely thrilling that you are reading and actually loving a story I thought up and wrote down.
If you are one of the many who have read Her Dying Day, please go to Amazon, Barnes&Noble, and/or GoodReads and give it a 5-star review. Posting a review, especially if I get 50 reviews on Amazon, activates the algorithm and helps other people find me. (The things you learn about book sales once you become a published author.)
