My first book In Between Dreams is free right now on Kindle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L8DQQKG Not that you need to read the first book to understand the second book. I wrote them as a separate story, but every once and awhile I do throw out some stuff from the first book. It is available free April 8 through the 12. The third and book of the series you definitely need to read the second book to know what is going on, even though I will touch on stuff, but like most people have written in reviews, the story is very unique.
Here is another review I though I would share.

Burning Through Their Eyes by Eugene Knight is a stunning sci-fi with a unique concept and surprising originality. When Toby decides to move to Chicago, it is because he wants to start a new life with his family and to get close to the place where his father was killed. But Toby is shocked with the things he learns, understanding that the University where he works runs a very dangerous program operated by the NSA. But that isn’t enough; one of his sons is kidnapped and could be in grave danger; his son would be subject to a dangerous research which aims at harnessing the ability to manipulate the dreams of others and to pry into their thoughts through their eyes. Now Toby must rescue his son, and to do so, he must use his own set of exceptional skills. The only problem, apart from a deadly adversary, is when a gifted seer of the future reveals that he’s seen Toby killed in a vision.
I was drawn into the story from the very start with the great writing and the author’s ability to lead readers into the conflict. The story starts with action and the major conflict is introduced in the very first pages. I wanted to know who the man being tortured was because he seems to have been deceived. In his thoughts, the young man remembers the words of Dr. Niles from the University of Chicago, telling them she needed their help because “You guys have great potential.” The element of suspense is introduced right at the beginning of the story and the author uses it so wonderfully to keep the reader interested and focused. Eugene Knight’s Burning Through Their Eyes is a powerful work that combines crime and intrigue to create an absorbing plot, great characters, and a drama that readers will enjoy. It reads like a motion picture.
This week I decided to talk a little bit about the editing issue that held the book from being published on the original date. It was kind of irritating. I sent the book out in November to have it edited and didn’t hear anything back until January where I received a crappy response from just asking how the editing was going; I guess that should have been the red flag. The editor promised it would be done by the release date with enough time to check it over. Well, I still have yet to hear from that person, even after I waited until the last minute then switched editors, because we had an agreement. But I guess agreements in writing mean nothing anymore. I wasn’t going to put a release date down and start the giveaway three months in advance, but she reassured me everything was going “good”.
I would have switched editors a long-time prier, but I didn’t want to pay for two separate edits. On top of that, the editor did a good job on the first book. So, was hoping for the same thing this time.
I guess what I took out of it is how much should I trust someone that I’d never met? And at what point did she break the contract? It really is a moot point now. I’m definitely doing things different with The Devil’s Circus.
See you next week
