Dear friends and readers,

It has finally happened: My first book, **In a Small Compass – Vol. 1**, was published on November 30, 2016 as a multi-format ebook by Smashwords. As many of you may know, the book comprises my first 15 (optimised!) short stories. I hope you’ll take time to check it out at Smashwords, where you can download the book for free.

**In a Small Compass – Vol. 1** is available at many retailers. Mobi format is available at Smashwords.

I am looking forward to your feedback and reviews. 🙂

Best wishes,

Karen

Karen has been a great supporter of mine. She’s published her first book, and everyone should grab a copy.

Thanks for the reblog and for your kind words, Craig.

Ha, two different blogs allowed me to tweet it out twice because the link is different.

Wonderful, Craig. You are a great friend, thank you.
