There is a God-vs-man aspect surrounding the man and the "monster", and the fact that the creator forsakes his creation is fodder for an epic tale of love loss, betrayal, and extreme heartache.

Hi Vanda! Thanks for reaching out! Hope you enjoy the book, and the best to you in the new year!

Vanda Denton Hi Israel, I'm just allowing myself an hour to explore Goodreads and I recognised your name from following you on Twitter for some time. Thought I'd take a look at your author page here. It's great. I see you like Dean Koontz and I do too. That you write speculative fiction, amongst others, which I do. I have your book Dreaming at the Top of My Lungs on my 'To Read' list. The title is fascinating. Hope both writing and marketing are going well for you.
Does this add names?
Just in case: Vanda Denton @vinctalin
