  1. Hi Roger,

    I remember the excellent review you gave my first novel, ROAN: The Tales Of Conor Archer, vol. 1. You liked it a lot and I wanted to let you know that the second volume is out. It’s called SKELLIG: The Tales Of Conor Archer, vol. 2. It’s free on Kindle Unlimited. Thought you might like to know.

    This is an excellent website. Congratulations!
