This was an amazing first book in a series. I thought it stumbled a bit in the middle, but I was wrong. It was explosive from start to finish.

Great story and great writing"

Rusty Nugent Thanks for your friendship.


Anna  (Bananas!) Major re-write sounds painful. Can't wait to read it!
What is F2F...do you mean the monthly speculative group? You haven't written it off completely? lol

I'm forcing myself to edit two near-finished stories today. Been procrastinating too long.


Anna  (Bananas!) David, you're here! :) How's your story coming along? I almost have that horror story ready to send to you. Excited for your feedback!
