The Blackened Night by L.K. Below

The Blackened Night by L.K. Below

  14 Days until the release of This Blackened Night, The Order: Book 3! Every author has a set of characters more dear to their hearts than any others.

I wouldn’t back down from NA, nevertheless, I realized I should rewrite the whole first half of the thing to pick up the slow pace. I had began the rewrites of DESTINY GIFT when I saw a pitch contest at Savvy Authors. I… Read more »
