love & fatigue: now in paperback & audio book

My book, Love and Fatigue in America, is now out in paperback and audiobook. Many chronic fatigue sufferers have requested an audio version, so I’m especially thrilled to have this format available for the first time.

Writer Susie Bright calls Love and Fatigue in America “the unexpected bible of the disease no one admits.”

Please help spread the word. You can purchase the book on audio, Kindle, or paperback here.

Also, all of my novels, including the previously out-of-print books Horizontal Hotel and Written on a Stranger’s Map, are now available for Kindle. Check out the Roger King page on Amazon to learn more.
