Happy Saturday! I was so deep in editing the final proof yesterday that I almost forgot it was Book Trailer Drop day! It’s the last book trailer drop before Release Day, March 15, and there’s one book trailer left, to be released on the day! This one concentrates on some of the most “western” of our fantasy western stories: Inheritance by Ethan Hedman, A Different Kind of Law by Eric S.
