Hi Shelley,

Just popping you down until the end of the month to give some support to Darius Stransky. He was kind enough to put Soldier on his shelf for a while and I'd like to return the compliment and ensure his place on the desk.

Hope you and the boys are doing well. Can't wait for summer. Here's hoping we all have a great one!

Kathy

SJ,
How are you these days? My book "The North Korean" is now available in full-length at smashwords, nicely cheap for mass consumption. Click on https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/420795
for easy access. If you're so inclined, could you leave a brief comment by linking onto "review?" Thank you so much.

Best.
Kenneth

My name is Peter Reich, special investigator to the Pope and former captain of the Swiss Guard.

I need your help.

A few months ago, I was approached by a young Spanish woman who claimed to have evidence of a U.S.-led plot to assassinate the Pope and take control of the Vatican.

My son is dead. My wife is missing. And my only friend has turned against me.

I am alone and in hiding.

I do not trust anyone, perhaps I can trust you.

This is my story.

Hello Shelley,
I would greatly appreciate it if you would allow me to ‘pick your brains’.
My book, “The Anger Within”, is currently Number 1 in the thriller genre, number 7 in the Crime Fiction genre, and Number 79 overall.
I have taken the advice of an agent and a publisher and re-written the book, in order to reduce the size from 155,000 words to its current size of 107,000 words. Apparently, crime thrillers (particularly from new authors) need to be around this number of words to stand any chance of being traditionally published??
The new version of the book, which totally retains the original story, has just been uploaded and I would be very grateful if you could find the time to take a look at it. Any comments would be much appreciated.
Of course, I am more than happy to return the kindness.
My very best wishes,
Tom

Shelley,

Thank you so much for your comment on Shooting Star and for putting it on your shelf. You have no idea how much I needed that. I was feeling crap about the beginning and feeling like it didn't come across like I wanted it to. I literally had tears after reading your review and I feel renewed now. Like I can do it! :-)

I seem to have the southern thang down 'cause I AM southern. :-) They say to write what you know, right? I've lived in southeastern Tennessee my whole life.

Anyway, thanks again for the big vote of confidence. You've lit a fire, Shelley, so I better get to work. Have a lovely day and I look forward to reading your work in the next few days.

Best,
Madison

Hi Shelley
Hope all is well with you and that Tristan is doing okay.

Wishing you a happy new year xx

SJ,
Thank you so much for your past comments. They've helped me with my long journey thus far. Would you consider a final 10-day backing of "The North Korean," if you think it worthy, that is?

Much obliged,
Kenneth

You are welcome Shelvis, and thank you for letting me know. I'll do my best to give you some commentary shortly. Although I only had a brief read before choosing your book, I noticed you have an especially lovely style.
warm regards,
Elaine

Helloooo :D How are you doing?
Just saw Maeve's review on Katie - thought it was great, wonderful to get that kind of insight! How are things going on the SoJ front, or are you concentrating on Katie for now?

Righto, I'll bet you the finest bass boat. Just wiki'd it and learned that it refers to bass fish. I had this vision of bass guitarists practicing on their boat in the middle of the river so as not to upset the neighbours!

Hey, this is good. I am quite enjoying it. At Autho 5 (your 4). Will read further before commenting.

Hi Shelvis. too true, it doesn't end at the writing of the novel. Have you done your short, medium and long synopsis yet? Dependant upon the agents wishes of course. The hoops mount up along the track that we have to jump through, but it's all good fun at the end of the day.

Shelley,
First of all, thank you so very much for backing Fresh Meat I really appreciate it.
Although not much of an American Civil War buff, you have intrigued me. Besides, that last message is worth some special consideration. So, even though I have 30 or so books ahead of you, I will readyours next.
Best,
Maeve
