    I’m so excited about the feedback I’ve begun to receive on my short story, Bitter Prophecy. Here’s two I just received via email:

    Deborah Bryant Knight said: “I just finished your short story. It was hypnotic. I was right there in the story. I think it was your best yet, and I really enjoyed it!”

    and Kathleen Norman said: “I found the time to read your story. I could just see everything in my mind. Good discription. I want to read the sequel.”
