  1. Hi Juanita, thanks for including my blog for Enrico’s, Pick of the Week. I’m thrilled! I received a publishing contract from Steam eReads a couple of weeks ago, but decided to go indie instead. I’d like to announce that my debut novel, Bloodgifted, comes out next month on Amazon and other online retailers. The journey’s going to be interesting!
