As you all know by now, I am no longer self-publishing The Atavists Trilogy. I hope to have a new and improved Darkness Surrounding to send out to agents in late 2013. For now, I'm querying agents for my literary fiction novella Creation and am finishing up my other literary fiction novel called Flowers When You're Dead.
