Midu Hadi Thanks for the invite!

Hi, Chris:

I'm glad you enjoyed JOHNNY, I still get a lot of feedback on that one. I'm even happier to learn you're reading PERSONAL DEMONS, because that series - The Jake Helman Files - is my real passion project.

Gregory Lamberson Brett wrote: "Heya Gregory! GREAT stories. Looking for better copies to keep in my perm library. Should be honored.

Really though, thanks for sharing your imagination with us."

Hi Brett:

Thanks so much for your interest and support! I'm finishing a huge project right now - THE JULIAN YEAR - and as soon as I put it to bed I hope to start a more active presence here. TJY is the first TREEbook (Timed Reading Experience E-book) with time triggers and branching technology. I'm also starting STORM DEMON, Book 5 of The Jake Helman Files.
