Book Trailer: The Widow’s Gambit (Wyrd West Chronicles #6)

Releasing my book trailer for the final installment of the Wyrd West Chronicles for the first year! This turned out to be a long one: unedited, it’s 45,000 words! Wyrd West publication will resume in 2019. This year, I’ll still be producing the print collection, and I’ll still be putting out the audiobook (or perhaps books; we’ll have to see what works best.) In the meantime, The Widow’s Gambit is available for pre-order NOW at this link, and it will be release February 2 (Imbolc)!
