    The Sterlings Series Book Title Changes

    As part of my rebranding project, The Sterlings Series novels have received new titles, all but the fourth book, The Secret Keeper. During the retitling process, the first three books were out of commission for less than twenty-four hours. But here are the new titles of the books.  The series is still in Kindle Unlimited. The stories have not been changed. Secrets & Chance is now Secrets and Lies Revelations is now Secrets That Hide Forever & Ever is now Secrets That See The Light I hope this makes the books easier to find. The print versions should be available within the next 48 hours as well!
