I grew up n East Syracuse with your father's family being very close to me. Your Aunt Anne is my best friend. Before she left for Ur=tah she called and we talked about you and your book i downloaded it to my Kindle and just finished reading it. All I can say is, "How long until I can read the next part!" I am a retired English teacher and read constantly. I was not prepared for how much I would enjoy your book since science-fiction fantasy is not my usual read. Although, I must admit my granddaughter has gotten me into the Divergent trilogy. May I join the rest of your family in the pride we have in your work! And, again, how soon for the next installment!Joleigh Kirkland
Oh wow, I was so excited to get this comment from you, Joleigh! I certainly recognize your name as a family friend. I am so glad you liked the book! I struggle a little bit with worrying that close friends and family will tell me they like it just to be nice, but each time I hear someone new say they enjoyed it is wonderful.I am just over halfway through the first draft of book 2. Since I am new to this, I'm not sure exactly how much longer that means before it will be published and available, but I am definitely thinking sometime later this year, at least. If you'd like, you could rate the book on amazon.com - for independent authors, this is a great way to advertise and get word of the book out there where others can find it.Thank you so much for your message!
