After Knox Robinson Publishing closed its doors and removed all its books from circulation, SHADOW OF ATHENA has found a new home, Penmore Press, and, after much editing and emending which resulted in a much better book, was released in September 2019.

It is available through Penmore Press at http://penmorepress.com, or through Amazon. If you look for it on Amazon, the old edition still mostly pops up, so look for this cover, which you can find by clicking on Elena Douglas and going to my author page, https://smile.amazon.com/Elena-Douglas/
