Why Sample Chapters?

Early on in the authoring/publishing process I made the decision to make sample chapters of my stories available at no cost, giving readers the opportunity to check out my work prior to ordering.

Reading sample chapters of a book prior to ordering just makes sense for everyone. It allows the reader to get a real feel for the story and reduces the number of  negative book reviews written by readers who end up not liking a writer’s style, pacing, plot, etc.

Some of the excerpts on this website are from books that have already been released while others are from books that are soon to be released. As always, I look forward to your feedback.

      Hi Drew,
      Thanks for your interest in the After The Fall series. I’m happy you enjoyed Hunter and are wanting to continue the journey in Book Two, The Gathering. While I can’t give you an exact date for its release, I can assure you that it is in the editing stages and will be released very soon (It is written). While you are waiting, I would be so bold as to ask you for your help by writing a brief review on the site where you downloaded Hunter which would really help us get the word out to potential readers looking for that next great read. Thanks again and get ready for the continuation of the story as it unfolds on the west coast five years after Hunter… I appreciate your patronage—be sure to stay in touch and tell your friends about us. We’d like to gather throngs of readers and take them all on the journey.

    Has The Sisterhood been published yet? I just finished re-reading the first 2 books and am anxious to read the next book of the series. I can’t find in on Amazon and I want to add it to my Kindle.
    thank you, Ruth
