Hearts Never Change – Imminent!

The third and final part of Richard Liveth Yet is in the review process by Amazon Kindle and should be available to purchase and download by the end of the weekend!! I know many of you have been waiting for it, so I have used the provisional cover, but you can download any updated versions later.

The third part of the trilogy is in the final stages of uploading, formatting, etc, and the cover is coming along.
