Pricing Change, Special Offer

06-21-2014 - Summer Sale

Every One Fight now retails for $4.99 CDN/USD, and until the 30th, the code AS74E will give you 75% off ‘sticker’ price! Additionally, Every One Fight is now free for libraries. I’m also courting the idea of offering a perk to new followers buy kamagra here, Twitter, and Wattpad.

Don’t forget Bold Curves is also on Wattpad so you can read in advance of purchase, when it becomes available.
