"This story is rivoting. I was truly on the edge of my seat." -- Unknown.
"I thought this story was great!! The author portrayed the characters in a way that made them seem so real. I can't wait to read more :)" -- Karen, USA.
"I liked the story. It kept me in suspense. Great work." -- Sara.
"This is a good story ... my only suggestion is this, edit edit edit !!! Tighten it up and lose some of the unnecessary wording. A short story is so much more affective when told in fewer words. ie: "Geoffrey, who was waiting outside, saw the glow exit through the window of the house, he was standing outside of, and shoot towards the sphere, that he held in his hand. " Instead, maybe try something like this; "Outside the house, Geoffrey watched as the glow shot through the window toward the sphere in his hand." It was a hard lesson for me to learn and I am still struggling with that aspect!!! Good luck and keep writing!!!" -- Judith Goff, USA.
"Hey thanx for the review judith I am however making it into a novel and have allready compleated 4 chapters thanx for the advise tho :-)" -- Author.
"You're welcome & good luck with the novel ... of course, editing is still very important, even with longer works ... I was lucky enough to have an editor friend help me with that aspect of my novels. That is where a thick skin comes in handy. Don't take my advice personally, (:o) just trying to help out. At first I was angry with her, but after I took a long hard look at my story and implemented some of her advice it was much more readable !! Again, good luck! Your story IS good !!" -- Judith.
"Please post the next chapters. I cant wait to find out what happens :)" -- Karen.
"Man this is better than the poems. Is this going to made into a novel? I would really like to get my hands on it once its done. POST IT!" -- John C.
"Yes I am working on turning it into a novel I am on the 3rd chapter now but am just in the process of editing at the moment so watch this space :-)" -- The Author.
