Your review of Dead Hunt

Hi guys,

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for taking the time to listen to Dead Hunt and for the great review! I appreciate your comments and learn a lot when people like you give an honest assessment. Your in-depth review was well thought out and I enjoyed hearing your praises and criticisms. That type of feedback is invaluable, so thank you for your honesty. When I was asked in an interview if I would change anything my answer was, without hesitation, "the writing." There’s a lot of things I would change… especially in the prologue. The original story was teens but they were supposed to be college kids in the final draft so I don’t know what happened there. Major oversight! I also agree with your assessment of the diner scene: I should have included more description on how he found her and got her out. Good catch. Ditto for the bear… and A.I… and the chip… You gave me a lot to think about. I’m glad you would be interested in hearing the sequel, which I hope to finish writing within the next few months, and I do hope you guys are willing to review that one on your podcast as well. I really enjoyed your show! Once again, thank you for your comments and honesty. It means a lot to me. Sincerely, Kenn

I'm not especially a zombie and/or gore kind of person, but I enjoyed this your latest book review (ep0978). Here are a couple other audio books I've listened to and highly recommend, and I'd really enjoy hearing your review of them too at some point. This is a series of audiobooks following the life and career of the main character from his first unprepared steps into the spacefaring cargo fleet as a newly orphaned late-teen through owning his own ship. No aliens, no space battles, etc., but in my opinion nevertheless thoroughly engaging. Another, shorter series, very different but equally excellent. Set in the near future on Earth where several rival factions have found a way into a kind of alternate dimension intersecting ours, the eponymous Heavenfield, and discover that we are not alone, and that our actions shape our reality for good or ill. A race of superhumans lives secretly in our midst, and in a deep underwater base, seeking to direct mankind into a better future. But now there's a civil war among them, spilling into our world. The main character learns that she is not just one of these immortals, but a key to their very survival and torn between the factions.

Thanks for the feedback on our feedback, Kenn, but most especially thanks for your book! I really enjoyed it and while I don't remember what the blazes I said about it, any criticism I had was only because I liked the book enough to feel safe with little nit-picks. All in all, I loved the story and the writing, and you had me all the way til the end. And in the end, that's all that matters.

Looking forward to the sequel!
