My Fiction


Released: The Apocalypse Bug

Yo! It’s not exactly a secret, or even The Secret, but I’m trying a non-advertised, non-pushed, timed release of several books over the next few months. First up is the one named in the title, now available on Amazon as of yesterday. I’m curious to see how it goes. I’m using the name “DH Young”…
