Jeff had big publishing news this week as Codename Winger #1: Tracker Hacker was contracted by Harmony Ink Press for a Fall 2017 release. He’s also participating in Love Is Proud, a charity anthology coming from JMS Books which will benefit the victims and families of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. Love’s Opening Night was also re-submitted this past week for consideration as a full novella.
The guys discuss this past week’s Tony Awards, which they felt was the best in years.
