I could hardly contain myself when I read the latest review for The Sentient on Amazon:
"Although fiction, something I rarely if ever read, I found the story
compelling me to read on and on. Excellent. Inspiring. Awakening"
That right there is an amazing compliment, and further encouragement to go work some more on the sequel.
If you need me, I'll be writing. (And probably still smiling ear to ear about the review.)
