Due to a scheduling conflict (my own dang fault), we couldn't have a formal event this year. However, The Book Stall has graciously agreed to let me swing by and sign stock. This is a perfect opportunity to order a personally-signed copy of THE BETRAYED WIFE. The Book Stall will be happy to hold it for you or ship it to you!

Even if you can’t make it to any of the following events, you can still purchase your personally autographed copy of Kevin O’Brien’s latest thriller.
