Well, at least some of you will be happy.
My debut novel GUESTLIST is finally available for Kindle and it’s only $2.99. Looka here, I know today is pay day, so for those of you who have been holding out no longer have an excuse.
That is, of course, unless you have an iPad, Nook, Sony Reader or Kobo. And I’m sorry, but if you do have one of those devices, the wait will be just a bit longer.
That’s all. Head on over to Amazon and get GUESTLIST for Kindle today!
