    9 Houses Down

    I am a fan of your writing and this story did not disappoint. Brian's inner dialogue was wonderfully written. I also liked the pace of the plot development, The bracelet was a clever device and the ending was superb. Yes, I LIKED your story!!!
  2. I am sad that we have come to this point in Greg and Nate's story. Like in all stories where I become invested in the characters, I want your story to continue for a long time. Yet, you chose a meaningful point to find closure. This story was challenging to me, parts were difficult to read, and the romantic in me kept saying, "No, no, no!" Thank you for writing such a compelling story with such complex characters. The poetry reference was exquisite, both in your choice and in your execution of its use in the title and across the story. I will be watching for your next story!
  3. The length is of no consequence for me. However, I'm dying a slow death of sadness. I'm so invested in these two characters that my heart is breaking for them. As a writer, you have done your job well! Is that last word, "Noah", a glimmer of hope for the next installment of their lives?

    Part 5

    Selfless love is a thing of beauty, as is your endearing story! Thanks for the great read. I'm not like any of your characters, yet I identified with each of them. Thank you!

    Part 1

    Well. I'm thoroughly hooked after just one chapter! But, I was primed from reading other stories of yours. I enjoy your writing and your ability to bring your characters to life. I hit "follow" before I started reading the chapter.
  6. Just as they had receded into memory you brought these wonderful characters back to life. Thank you! Thank you! What a delightful early Christmas present.

    Chapter 31

    Thank you for a wonderful story! I am so not ready to be done with this cast of characters. So, I am glad to hear that you are not either. I look forward to the future with anticipation!

    Chapter Twelve

    I have been enjoying your development of this story and these characters. It's been a good read. This chapter, however, was a great read! I don't care to imagine what ended up on the editing floor as you rewrote because the end result is wonderful. You nailed it with Jordan. The chapter, for me, is all about Jordan and he leaps off the page as real, vulnerable, and believable. Thank you for your extra effort; it was worth it. I'm looking forward to following their developing relationship.

    A Bug's Life

    I agree with Obican--beautifully executed. I read the intro blurb and thought, "Well maybe yes, maybe no, we'll see." I'm hooked--intriguing, memorable characters, including the staff.

    Lost

    I was lying in bed this morning musing about my very real case of "Vacation Companion" withdrawal. Like so many others, I wondered if you were satisfied with having created a novelette that kept us wishing/wanting/craving more. Who knew that my withdrawal could be so quickly cured just by seeing that GA notification on my computer. Thank you! Thank you! As per usual you satisfy and leave me wanting more.
  11. I have so thoroughly enjoyed your story and the character that you developed in Drake. I have been so exasperated with Drake throughout much of the story, but I think that was your intention and it worked. That exasperation made the ending so much more delicious. It is always sad when a story that I like reading comes to an end but that sadness is balanced with an ending that leaves me happy and content with where the characters are with their lives. Thank you for sharing your talent for story-telling with us your readers!

    Dream On

    Thank you! I was seriously going through withdrawal--checking frequently to see if a new chapter was posted. Thanks to you, I'm fully invested in these characters and their lives.

    Chapter 11

    I love it when an author draws me in and I become invested in the characters. Thanks for a great read! I look forward to reading more of your writing.

    Health Crisis

    Caregiving is a demanding and tiring experience, both physically and mentally. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of your mother. You may find that taking time to write, even for a short time each day, will help you deal with the stress of your situation. Know in your heart that you have the support of your readers as you work through this difficult time.
