    Bravo, Shawn! Here’s hoping for even better news March 12. Your novel haunts me–can’t stop feeling the desert, the dessication, and Nexus’ exhaustion. I need to read it again, however, before I attempt an intelligent discussion because my response was so visceral.

    I’m your 2nd cousin, unfortunately we’ve never met. I’ve been told that you excel in almost everything. Congratulations.

      Hi Dani:
      Couldn’t have been my Dad who told you that! Seriously, though, I’ve moved around so much for work I hardly see anyone in my extended family–must be 10 years since I’ve been to Suzanne’s.

      Good to hear from you. I’d suggest taking a good look at the sample chapters before ordering–the book is not for everyone (it’s written in an older style.)

      If you’re still game after that, I can provide you with a signed paper copy–if the e-book is not what you want. Or, if it is, I can shoot you the file directly for free. My e-mail is sstjean@gmx.com.
