Thank you for the return of encouragement. I’ve never been able to have much imagination for fiction however, I’ve been trying to write and, rewrite and, re-write something of a biographical piece of work regarding myself and family experiences. Gratefully computers nowadays are so merciful and, I can simply hit delete. There’s times that I sit down and bang away on the keys and come back a few days later, a week later and, reread what I’d written and think “God what a bunch of crap that is!“ Who in the world will want to read that! But, I do keep trying so, maybe one day.
I saw your review pop up on Amazon! (Yeah, I'm newbie enough that I check Amazon regularly to see if more reviews have rolled in yet.)I finished it this morning and give you a 4 star rating on Amazon. Not quite up to a 5 star rating but good and from the hints... a second book in the works I look forward too.
Great job and keep at it.
Excellent! It always tickles me when someone actually enjoys it. I wrote it to entertain, and so far it seems to be working.Finished your book over the weekend.
Very nice read. Action flowed throughout and kept my interest. I’m passing on to my teenage son to read. Fits nicely into the young/new adult category for him.
I'll be needing some soon. I finished the sequel, but the length was a touch shorter than I wanted, so I'm going over it again to thicken it up a bit. (But not with stupid descriptions and crap. I hate long winded descriptions.)When's the second one out.... I could be a beta test reader.
I can relate.....
And finally, this is how I feel as I try to ignore the awesomeness of this moment and work on the third book in the series:
Heh, it'll be probably March before I see a penny from book sales. AND that'll be when I find out how well it's been selling. Until then, I'm just keeping an eye on the number of reviews I get and watching GoodReads to see who is reading my book. (So far it seems to be selling extremely well - I think.)I can relate.
After a published book, the second best feeling you can have is when you get a check FROM the power company for the electricity your solar panels generated the previous year. Ask me how I know....
What? Are you not going to copy the Russians and have 32 names and nicknames for every single character? And then spend chapters commenting on schools of whales?I'll be needing some soon. I finished the sequel, but the length was a touch shorter than I wanted, so I'm going over it again to thicken it up a bit. (But not with stupid descriptions and crap. I hate long winded descriptions.)
