I was off Goodreads for like a year at least and never saw your question here about Survival Instinct. I am so glad you liked it! I think if you enjoyed that, you would likely enjoy MERCY RULE, which has sort of the same flavor as Survival Instinct. The same "Voice" I'd say.

So I am back on GR now, if there is anything I can do to make up for this very stupid one-year-later response, please let me know! I'm so sorry!

Tom Leveen Wow, so...I'm like a year late responding to this. "Epic" doesn't do this fail justice, Christy!

I can't even begin to say I'm sorry -- but, I'm sorry. I'm glad you liked RANDOM! For what it's worth, I'll be on YouTube live talking about it tonight, Wed Jan 9 at 8pm MST. You can go here to see it or find the recording later: bit.ly/TL_live

If you're still in school, I'd be happy to talk about a visit. And even if you're not, if there is anything I can do to make up for this COLOSSAL failure on my part, please let me know!
Thanks again!

Hard core training. Looks simple on the surface till you start actually trying it. Reading this and going through the training has changed the direction of my life for the better.
