Dawn of Humanity / Man vs Nature / Natural Selection

#BookBlast for Natural Selection–Join me!

The next few weeks, my wonderful efriends are helping me launch my latest prehistoric fiction, Natural Selection. Early reviews…

“Once again, Ms. Murray has woven prehistory into a lovely, understandable story.” –Sandra Cox, author of Geller’s Find and other time travel Westerns

“Murray excels at bringing prehistoric tribes and animals to life—all of them are impressively dimensional characters.” –Carrie Rubin, author of Fatal Rounds and other medical thrillers

“Your best ever”–husby (you say he said the same thing last time? I don’t remember)

I’ll be visiting writer friend blogs October 24th-November 6th, and then continue with the occasional “I’m Traveling” visits through May 2023. We’ll chat about Natural Selection and writing in general. Here are articles you can read in alphabetic order.
