  1. It was awesome! Your book has all the elements I love. Page-turner, great descriptions, sympathetic characters and nemesis (what’s the plural of nemesis?). The atmosphere with the hint of the supernatural…I don’t want to say anything more and give too much away. I’m SO glad that I read The Start of the Majestic World.

    1. Thank you so, so much, Barb! I can’t tell you how much your kind words mean to me. I am thrilled that you not only enjoyed it, but took the time to comment about it. That really makes me happy. Thanks again!

        1. As fast as I can write it–which isn’t as fast as I’d like. But you will be the first to know when it does! Feel free to let me know what you would like to see happen in it, if you want.

    2. By the way, if you enjoyed my book, you might also want to check out the book “The King in Yellow”, by Robert W. Chambers. One of the stories, “The Repairer of Reputations” probably influenced me more than any other story I’ve ever read. Very weird and unique atmosphere.

      Also, it’s in the public domain (written in the 1890s) so it’s available for free.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
