Kingman resident Aubrey Bancroft displays copies of her detailed character profiles, colorful scenes and the new book they're part of, called "Taste of Shadows." The book, which was self-published, was released recently in a Kindle version on amazon.com and will feature a print version on the same web site. It is the first in her Taste series of novels. Bancroft's first book, "Love's Stinging Bite," was self-published in 2010 through Maryland-based PublishAmerica. Both books have supernatural themes.
