Getting better and worse.

Welcome to Midnight Frost books.

Sept 20 2013 I’m starting a blog as my publishers – Midnight Frost – deem it desirable. It was probably something I should have done a while ago, but I was sidetracked by my other publisher – authors online – being keener on social media, ie Facebook. In fact they even did a Facebook page […]
