Thank you very much! Really appreciate you letting me know :) Also, I am a novice with a thick skin so don't hold back at all, I have a lot to learn and want to develop over the next few years and know I have a long way to go so it's best to hear the truth! I am aiming to get at least three new ebooks out this year, I've spent the last six months plus developing the website, etc. so it's time to get back to writing!

Wind Just bought all 3 of your stories. I read the first couple of paragraphs of each. They look really good! Still working on reading a few books right now, but I'll let you know when I read them.
