Blood Witness is Now Available for Your Kindle »

Many many years ago I thought “I’d like to read a novel about a vampire who becomes a Jehovah’s Witness.”  But no one had written one, so I had to. Blood Witness, released as a podiobook a while back, is now available on your kindle for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee. It’s […]
