Mark.

I will back your book because of the premis and because I want to encourage you to keep writing. However, I would like to offer you advice. I suggest that you have your work carefully edited, and I suggest you be very objective about the editing. Soutexmex was trying to give you the same advice. Believe me, I know what I am talking about. I have been working on Jamie 7 literally for years. It has been edited twice by professional editors and still needs editing. The version that has been posted on this site is an older version. So if you take a look at it, you will still spot excess commas and the like. I should upload the latest edited version, and I will soon.

I have learned that is a mistake to take a personal aditude toward editing. I have learned to be greatfull for any editing I can have done. Editors and proof readers strive to help us writers because we are just humans.

I hope this advice helps you.

Very interesting and informative work. I will back it. I have been looking for stories about demonic possessions and the like for information. I do not bleieve in tarot cards and crystal reading, but I know others do. From information I have gathered so far, use of those things can open the door to demonic possession. So I found your work very useful in writing the novel I am writing. It s sequel to Jamie 7 and is called Demon Wars. I have a portion of Jamie 7 posted on this site. You might want to take a look at. I really should upload a new version because Jamie 7 has been edited. I guess I will do that soon.

In any case, very good and informative writing.

Very impressive. I will back this and I agree with most of the other reviewers that is should be published. Are you aware that you can publish this as an Ebook on Amazon KD? and Smashwords? As an Amazon KD Ebook it would be available to owners of the Amazon Kindle. Smashwords makes it available to owners of the Barns & Noble Nook. Just do a Google search for Amazon KD and Smashwords to get to those sites.

I will back your book because of the quality of the writing. I was impressed by the "draw" at the very beginning. As a reader, I would have to keep reading to find out what happened to the woman's son. So I will back this.

However, I never read books or stories about witches, vampires, warlocks and the like. I just don't believe in them. I do bleieve in God, evil, and the existance of satan.

Alice.

I am from Chicago and your work made me think of my past - like the huge "octopus," the coal burning furnace with huge pipes leading to varoius rooms in the old house. You reminded me of the small water heating coal burner that we had to start up if we wanted to sit in the bath tub. You reminded me of all the family members sitting at a long table sipping coffee and wine, joaking, critcizing, just being together. You remended me of my childhood.

Thank you. Certainly backed. You might want to take a look at some of my work.

Carzy Mama.

I am very impressed. I will definitely back this. My wife and I are old enough and have been married long enough (48 years) to have seen other versions of the kind of problems you describe. We are also Christians (Catholic), and sometimes wonder "WHY." What we have not had is the obvious humor you have been able to use to help you face things. In my opinion, only a true Christian can do that.

I wonder if you would be willing to read and back my Jamie 7.

Thank you and
Keep Smiliinng

Hi.

I do not usually like witch and warlock stories, but my personal likes should have nothing to do with my decision to back or not to back. If I am to judge other's work, I should have a fixed set of criteria to apply, and I do.

Does your work have a hook in the first chapter? YES.
Does your work have chapter to chapter draw? YES.
Does your work have realistic and flowing dialogue? YES (I have no problem with dialogue intermixed with narrative).
Does your work contain excessive foul language? NO.
Does your work contain pronography? NO.

BACKED!

I will not comment on editing; you have heard enough about that.

Can you reciprocate by reading, commenting on, and backing my Jamie 7?

Groaner.

This is just about the most unique instruction book I have ever read. The humor is excellent, and you actually have a message to convey. You do that veryu well. I can back that.

How about reading, commenting on, and backing my Jamie 7?

This is very creative and original. For this reason, I could back it.

The writing style is very good. For this reason I could back this.

The dialogue is realistic and flows well. For this reason I could back this.

Chapter to chapter draw appears to be good (only three chapters). For this reason I could back this.

I am not interested in, nor do I read this kind of story. For this reason I should NOT back this.

What to DO????

We should not back things on this site simply because we like the type of story we read: we should back based on the quality of the writing. So, I will back this.

Please read, comment on, and back if opssible my Jamie 7.

Anthony.

Excellent thriller. I like the first chapter hook and the chapter to chapter draw. I will back this. One comment, however. Thinking of this in book form, the chapters are very short. Some might be only one or two pages long. Have you considered combining some of them? I do not think that would change the draw and suspense.

Please read, comment on, and back if possible my Jamie 7.

I will back this, absolutely. If you read my Jamie 7 you will know why. I think we have similar writing techniques. I hope you will read and back Jamie 7.

Solarc.

Youhave done a wonderful job describing the callanges all prients face - espscially Catholic priests. Few truly realize what it means to give up everything for Christ. The world is full of chriticism of priests today, when compassion and forgivness is in order. Priests are just men. Your work has described the compassion and forgivness.

I will definitely back this work.

Please take a look at, comment on, and back Jamie 7.

Steven.

I can and will back this.

Reminded me of the women in history who could attract men and even start wars. Cleopratra, for example. What was their allure? WShat made men give up kingdom's and their lives for such as these?

Bojan.

From the standpoint of everything i look for when decided to back a book, I can and will back this. You have a great hook at the start, very good chapter to chapter draw, and realistic dialogue. In addition, you had to deal with the 'mind reading' aspect, and you did that very well. So, Backed.

Valerie.

Refreshing, lovely, heart warming, beautiful - everything a young person's story should be. Of course this is in the class with Babbi. Backed with pleasure. If we had more of this kind of work to hand our children instead of the "stuff" we force down their throats, our world would be a better place.

Brilliant new idea. That is the first challange, and you have done that. In addition, you do have a great hook at the start, chapter to chapter draw is good, dialogue is relistic. Absolutely backed.

Abigail (Abi ??)

Great young person's story. I say that very deliberately. This is exactly the kind of story young people - teens to twenty-five or so- love. It is very well done. Great hook in the first chapter, realistic dialogue. I cannot tell from just three chapters if you have the chapter to chapter draw I look for. I will back this.

Oh yes, I emphasize the fact that thiis is a young people's story because - well, when young we have different philosphies and concerns than when we are looking at the end of things. As we approach mid-life, older, elderly, we think more and more about what we have done with our life, our opertunities, how we will answer for our actions.

We need the young philosphies in order to reach the end of things philosphies. You are meeting a critical need. and you do a very good job of it.

Susie.

This is a very sad, frightening, yet positive and beautifulstory. The sad, frightening things that you describe are always counteracted by hope and beauty. No man or woman is perfect; all have problems and limitations. My wife and I have been married for 48 years (May 24 - heaven help me if I forget). Of course we have had problems along the way, but we have overcome them by looking at the positive and beautiful side - just as is described in your work.

Very definitely Backed.

Sandi.

Delightful and well done. I can and will back this. Your pitch os good, you have a good hook at the start, you draw the reader from chapter to chapter, dialogue is smooth and realistic. I do think this is aimed at the younger readers, teen age and above. However, I know many adults would like this too; that's what made the Harry Potter series so popular.

Good job.
