Okay, I’m stickin’ them here if anyone wants to look – and as a ‘backup’ just in case my computer dies. Yeah, sure, I hope you buy it and like it – because SSDI income (after taxes) makes me look at the dogs with the fondness of a hungry Korean. Ain’t my words below: they came from Fictionpress.com from my initial “pre-publication publication”. Pulled it from there after I went to Kindle – wouldn’t be fair if publisher ever decides to pick it up (we’re all about fair!). Anyway – the good, the bad and ugly:
I wouldn’t recommend buying the Kindle one YET – the draft version is soon to be superseded with the final version (about May/June 2011) along with a paperback on Amazon at about the same time. Will try to remember to post links here for those.
There will be an electronic PDF type which has comments and all: think “Cliff Notes on Steriods”. If you just read the book it’s good reading – but as my wife says – you’ll be missing 90% of the ‘hidden’ meanings and reasons for stuff – as well as all my ‘wonderful’ psych notes, author’s notes, point-outs and call-outs for foreshadowing, false foreshadowing; hints to the 50 some odd “cliff hangers” (mild to ultra) – hidden thoughts and notes …. so much in this book … and these folks didn’t get the chance to read “those things” – just the book, raw, unedited, and ‘unpublished’ (the draft of the draft copy on Kindle).
These are the ones I liked best, tho’ – in the ‘front cover’ of the book:

AND for the RAW Reviews: (Be aware: May contain SPOILERS!) and I’m sorry if some of the reviewers were long winded. Not my fault.
