    I read your book Tim and thoroughly enjoyed it.
    No messing about with irrelevant sub stories, just good old adventure story telling and a page turner.
    Good job, looking forward to the next book.

    Adrian, I am so glad you enjoyed it and grateful for the kind words.
    The next one is a quarter way finished and hoping to have it to the publisher by the end of November.
    If you bought the book on Amazon would you be kind enough to rate it for me. It's a big help to get ratings.

    Thanks again.

    I couldn't get it on Amazon, I used the Book Depository in the UK but will certainly post a review on there.

    Your book saved me from walking around Disney World. Thanks! Read it while at the pool and on my balcony watching Okapi and Nyala walk around. I'm ready for your next book so get back to work...

    5-star review left on Amazon. Well deserved too.

    I just ordered the hard copy from Amazon. Looking forward to the read. Will post a review after reading.

    By the way, sitting here typing this post is more writing than my fingers are willing to do. Kudos to you!

    A few of you on here have asked for me to sign a copy of my book for you.

    As a thank you for the support shown by the AH community I will gladly sign any book sent to me. Simply PM me and I will provide you with my address to send it to. I will take care of shipping costs back to you. If you are going to by a book on Amazon, or elsewhere online, simply PM me for my mailing address and have it drop shipped directly to me and I will send it out to you signed.

    Thanks again for all the support from the members of AH. Truly a great community of like minded individuals.

    Really enjoyed the book! The first night I was just going to read a chapter or two and go to bed. Almost 3 in the morning my eyes wouldn't stay open lol and I finished the next night. I'll post a review on Amazon. Looking forward to your next one.
