It took me a little longer to release the book. I spent a lot of time on it this week to make it happen. I received half of the books in the mail Thursday evening, and spent Friday and Saturday morning getting them sent out, all the orders and the goodreads giveaway are not completely shipped yet, just the books that are going to GB, CA, and AU. This week I’ll have the rest of the book out. I feel bad for the post office employee who has to deal with me in the morning. it’s a lot of books. So, I didn’t want to send them out all at once or I’d be at the post office all day. I should get the rest of the books sent out by the end of the week. I could have sent them straight from the publisher, but I threw a couple of knickknacks in for everyone.
I was going to talk about the editing issue this week, but I received my first review from Reader's Favorite, which had me beaming. So, I thought I would share that this week instead.

Eugene Knight is a name I will begin to associate with the likes of James Patterson. Yes, his powerful blend of thriller and sci-fi took me by surprise. Readers are introduced to Toby Ryan, a character with exceptional psychic powers, an underground network of experts about to create a deadly technology, an NSA project, and a band of criminals, all brought together in a very compelling plot.
Toby returns to Chicago to start a new life with his family, but Chicago will always remind him of how his father died and could it be because he needs to know who killed him and how? His first surprise is that his son is kidnapped and might be in grave danger. Toby quickly understands that things aren’t going to be the way they seem as he learns of an NSA secret that can transform the kind of skills he is born with into a formidable weapon. What matters is finding his son and he will have to use his power to control dreams and pry into the minds of others by peering through their eyes. Can he succeed when a deadly prophecy hangs upon his head? Burning Through Their Eyes is a tantalizing, hard-to-put-down story.
Eugene Knight has used a narrative voice that allows the different POV’s to come out clearly. The writing is top-notch, and the author makes great use of different literary elements to make the story interesting. The story starts with a dramatic event, a boy being tortured, and the reader also gets a great idea of the kind of conflict developed throughout the story. The shifts in narrative voices, from the first person narrative to the third person, respect the different POV’s and this creates suspense and anticipation in the reader. Burning Through Their Eyes is fast-paced, well-written, with memorable and compelling characters, a story that is insanely entertaining. I won’t hesitate to recommend this one to fans of sci-fi, crime and investigation. It is a thriller with great psychological depth.
Have a great week
