    I find it’s very important to read as well as write. Reading is a part of learning how to hone ones writing skills. I would enjoy reading your book and learning your style of writing. Every writer has their own unique style, whether the story is in first person or third person point of view, etc. Congratulations on the success of your book.


    You are a new author for me and I would enjoy reading your book. Reading will always take you on a new path for adventure and learning. Finishing a new and well written account in some one’s words can have the reader yearning for new paths of adventures.
