Upon further reflection, I decided to ask Aleta to tweak the Tam cover.

Taking time from Tam to check in. . . I had to stop writing Treasure & Treason to do the copyedits for The Ghoul Vendetta. Folks, if I do say so myself, this is the best SPI Files book I’ve written. I absolutely love this book, and I think you will too! That being said, […]
