I cheated and used Google-Fu to get myself some Book 2 action!

Zen, of course we want book 2. I was actually actually going to do a somewhat comprehensive write-up of my thoughts on the entire book.

You are going to put out some special autographed "first editions" for those of us who were here befor it was a bestseller right?!?

I'll have to figure out something special to do for those of you who have been here from the beginning.
Maybe have Sadie autograph it along with zed.

I was thinking 'zed' challenge coins would be cool.

This is a good a piece of writing as I have read in a long long time. I read it all today, just like any other good book that I cannot put down. When you publish, I will take 5 because I would give this out to people i know. Put me down for some Zed challenge coins as well!

Great job!!!

Woo! Jeez ZGF, this has been quite the ride, I am reeling still.

Yes please if you publish to Amazon I will certainly be picking this up.

As someone originally from that part of the world I take great joy in your accurate and engaging depiction of weather, terrain, foodstuffs, language and traditions...the Devil is in the details and all.

Thank you again for a grand ole' time!

Wow, great job and thanks for posting it. I think I have said it before, if not, you sir are one hell of a writer! Starting on unwanted development now.

Just finished the re-write of the party scene. The editor said it was a major part of the story and I hadn't done it justice. I hope to have the editing finished by the end of January so we can get this puppy into print. Meanwhile, I hope you and yours have a Wonder-filled Christmas!

So, just bought some more books for my kindle...and recently added a couple non-fiction books to the stack on my night stand...

I know you're still working on the second book (loving it btw!), but any idea when (or if) this one will be published? This is phenomenally well written and needs to be out there... I re-read this here in this thread pretty regularly, but would love to have it as a book...in any form you see fit to publish.

Again, well done on this story! Looking forward to a lot more I hope!

Yeah, I know, I'm late to the party (again...), but thanks. I'm enjoying the story, and being new to the handgun world, I'm spending a bit of time using google to check terms. Being entertained & educated at the same time is great!
