The Organ Growers – Available for Pre-order





The Organ Growers, the second book in the McBride series and follow-up to The Organ Takers, has completed the editorial process. No major rewrites are necessary, but I do need to add some finishing touches. I’ve made the ebook version available for preorder with a release date of December 14th, which will give me time to polish the manuscript and get some marketing efforts underway. I’m confident I’ll get these things done in time to move the release to mid-November, so keep an eye on my website for updates. 


For more about The Organ Growers, including sample chapters and a couple of cool videos that explain how human organs may someday be grown in the lab, follow this link.

Print versions will be available closer to the release date.


Thanks, and stay tuned for more info including giveaways of ebooks and signed print copies.
