Vitalis: New Beginnings

I was not sure how much I would like this: especially considering the rocky beginning. The narrative is okay though sometimes it feels like the writing could be more polished. It also is difficult to tell if the glitches in the dialogue are deliberate though sometimes it seems more that there is a greater need for editing.

This novella also takes a bit of a leap toward being somewhat erotic which would tend to have me put in mature young adult if I were to consider it for y
First off, way short and ends like a chapter. This should be put together with the other books as one instead of this. Not sure If I am going to read the rest yet. The main character Kira is the star everybody else is a two dimensional back drop for her. I did like her character but would have felt more vested in the story if there was more reason for her to save the rest of the crew.

Talking about myself in the third person is giving me fits - time to switch this up.

My day job is that of a computer jockey and all the hands on and hands off work that entails. When I leave the office behind I jump into family life (beautiful wife and two obnoxiously cute young children), finding a new way to hurt myself while powerlifting, and writing.

As of just recently I have 35 books publishe
