While you were eating breakfast this morning, a man in a suit walked through your front door and, before disappearing in a puff of smoke, informed you that you had just been granted the superpower you always wanted.

UNTIL I DIE

The countdown has already started for UNTIL I DIE (8 months away!), and although I will be adding its link to the Books page at some point in the future, I decided to group all information about it into a page in my Extras list.

Enjoy!

Hugs to you all,
Amy
