The Arthurian Romance With A Funny Title

Within a couple of weeks of arriving in Canada, once the almost permanent headache that came from concentrating so hard on the funny accents had gone away, I came to a startling conclusion.

HEART OF VENGEANCE – Historical Romantic Suspense – Now out!

I’m at Fang-tastic Books Today

Stop #5 of the Bannockburn Binding book tour. I'm visiting Fang-Tastic Books, and yes, I'm talking about the undead again.  Given the blog's raison d'être *is* the fanged ones, it seemed only appropriate to use them as my subject again.  The topic this time?  "Don’t Like Apple?  Switch to DOS and Become a Vampire."  Obscure, huh? :)
