Before you jump into this new adventure, please allow me to thank those who helped bring this story to life: Becca Andre and Kendra Highley, my tireless beta readers who agreed to follow along for something new; Shelley Holloway, my equally tireless editor who’s always willing to squeeze me into her busy schedule; Glendon Haddix of Streetlight Graphics, who always has time to design a cool cover for me; Sarah Engelke who advised on historical matters; and finally Mom and Dad for all the support over the years. Thank you, all.
