The release date for THORN will be a surprise. One day soon, the novel will be available immediately for purchase. No wait. No teasing. All promotions will happen upon release and afterward.
Unfortunately, until the problem with people reporting and removing my reviews can be stopped, this is the only way I can try to combat the damage on a new release by not giving them time to organize their attacks.
Readers have asked me how they can help and I'm a firm believer that the only job readers should have is the enjoyable part of reading books and hanging online with their favorite authors. While I work with Amazon to gather information and proof to prosecute those involved, if you see/hear of planned attacks led by authors and their readers in groups, the one thing you can do is not participate and privately report which authors are behind the unethical behavior to Amazon.
