Icelanders have a Christmas tradition I absolutely adore. Each Christmas Eve, they exchange books and then spend the evening reading. It's called the Jolabokaflod, the "Yule book flood."
This year, I've decided to join in the fun. Starting on December 24 at 12:00am PST, the Kindle edition of Dancing with the Viper will be FREE on Amazon as my gift to you--and as your gift to all your friends. Free books make great last-minute holiday gifts for family members, friends, teachers, clients, and book clubs.
I hope you'll get in the Jolabokaflod spirit too and help me flood the world with books. Read More

It was a nightmare.
It was a crime scene.
It was an anti-feminist comic book trope come to life.
It was April Fool's Day at my house. Read More
