That does sound cool. I promptly checked Amazon for The Dead Guy Downstairs by Sheri Adkins and couldn't find a listing. I'm very sad.

Lin, these are currently unpublished works, so they're not available on Kindle. But keep your eyes open because stranger things have happened than Golden Heart finaling manuscripts selling and showing up in print and/or e-format! ;)

I should have read the post more carefully! I hope a publisher picks these up!
