I just want to say that I a huge fan of SCI FI, and last week I buyed Idlewild, and read it in 3 days. It's excellent =)
now I bought the sequel and it's also great :)

It's a pleasure to read such good sci fi books.

I'm a primary teacher but now I'm investing on photography, design and writting.
I'm trying to be a "real" writter as well. I've published a book and maybe one day I'll join you on the Sci Fi theme :)
who knows? :)


Just a note, In Portugal the book covers as well the titles are very poor and non-atractive. If you have some power over it, try to be more hard with those who translate it or who do design.

kind regards,
Ângelo Fernandes, Portugal

Ângelo, thanks so much for the praise, and for blogging about me at http://www.ovelhamestre.pt.vu. Much appreciated! I wish you all the best with your writing, and look forward to your science fiction. Also, I appreciate your concern about the covers and titles--I'll pass that on to the publishers.

You don't need to thank me about anything :)

I've finished edenborn last week, now I'm hung up and very thrilled to read the last book of this trilogy.

I hope that my opinion about the covers and titles weren't too rude, but here in Portugal Sci Fi is not an "aclaimed" literay theme, as others, and I think it's not positive to see the publishers to treat it as if it were a poor theme. moving on.

best luck to you :)
