We Have Met the Enemy . . .

SUMMARY:

Duncan provides us with a bit of a history lesson around the adage, “We have met the enemy and he is us,” which was the inspiration for the series title, Meeting the Enemy. We wind up the promotion of TERROR, book one of Meeting the Enemy with a reading from near the end. And we get a preview of July’s promotions.

Who Spies on the Spies

SUMMARY:

This week Duncan talks about a message that acknowledged she is, indeed, a spy novelist and how that got her out of a slump because she missed her sales goal in May. We’ll hear about her favorite writer’s workshop and have a reading from TERROR, book one of MEETING THE ENEMY.

PROLOGUE TO TERROR, the reader magnet for TERROR, is on sale for 99 cents (eBook only), and you can find it at amazon.com/dp/B0B1F64YLQ.
