Past Cool Things

Forever by Pati NagleForever released.

This book is a bit of a departure for the series, having a male protagonist instead of female. All the ælven from the first two books are here, though – and I hope my readers will enjoy Stephen as much as they liked Len and Manda.



BookViewCafé has made a deal to license audiobooks of its members’ work through So far nine of my titles are up, plus two of the Far Western Civil War books. Listen to the free samples – the narrator on Pet Noir does a great job with the voices.

Ever wonder why Midwinter isn’t actually in the middle of official “winter”? Now it is!
