Double Book Launch Party in NYC

Yesterday evening, my friend Marina and I held a double book launch party. We gathered with friends at Phebe's Tavern to celebrate two new books – Domino, by me, and Chasing Freedom, by Marina Fontaine. Believe it or not, we did not coordinate or plan on this happening at all, but we released our novels within four days of each other. For me, this is book #3 (but the first one that isn't an indie). For Marina, it's her first and yes, it's an indie. (I had the pleasure of doing a beta read of Chasing Freedom, and I also know Marina worked with at least one editor, so her book is top notch.)

Who is Marina, you ask? She is the person with whom I co-founded the Conservative-Libertarian Fiction Alliance, a closed Facebook group where freedom-loving readers and writers can network in privacy. As of now, the CLFA is closing in on 1,000 members. If you are an aspiring writer, an old pro, or just someone who loves to read and wants to find more authors who see the world the way you do, click here and request to join the group.

Looking for a thrilling, uplifting, near-future American dystopia? Then check out Chasing Freedom by Marina Fontaine. 

Or if an anthropomorphic tale of vigilant cats facing an underhanded invasion is more to your taste, go here to check out Domino, by me!
