Now on my second proof - need advance reviews

Posted on May 25, 2011 at 5:03pm 3 Comments

My latest novel, Red Wheels Turning, is now starting to take its final form. It's quite close to our timeline, though it falls into the same universe as my previous alternate history novel, Beneath Gray Skies.
