As we get closer to publication with PUNISHMENT, I'm experiencing new and interesting things. For instance, the other day I received a form to fill out, asking about my preferences for the kind of reader we should use for the audio version of the book. I was floored by this. To dream of hundreds and... Continue Reading →
