My book—Mosaic of the Dark—is available for pre-order! The pre-sale price will be good until the end of December. In January, it will go up to the regular retail price. The book will be released in January.

I hope you will consider ordering a copy. For every book that is purchased during the pre-order sale, $5 will be donated to the Tennessee Equality Project, an organization that engages state and local governments in TN on behalf of the GLBT community and works to fight negative legislation at the state level.

Here is the link for ordering:

Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested.

And thanks to Jill Samuels (Laurie’s sister) for the beautiful cover artwork!
