    Hope you don't mind me posting this:

    It is a review of my book on

    Patrick, did you use the name Pat Catlett to avoid being steriotyped by distributers. I find some authers have androdgonas pen names.

    Did it hurt when they reviewed your book? I would be a bit carefull about reading reviews of my work.

    It seems a bit mean.

    I bet your proud you got a review though.

    I am thinking about buying your book. What is its feel, roughly?

    It looks unusual.

    How is book 2 coming along?

      Sorry Yolanda, but I just noticed your post. The only reason that my name is Pat Catlett in the review is that that is how my email is addressed, and I had emailed the reviewer.

      Yes, it was a bit nerve racking to have my book reviewed, but, all-in-all, I was pleased with it.

      What was even more nerve racking was when I had emailed Mike, and he agreed to read the book. I was pretty apprehensive awaiting his review, which I include below:

      A fine and refreshingly fast-paced fantasy adventure in the great tradition, The Ring of Naar never disappoints and often exceeds the reader's expectation. Action, landscape and character are all well up to standard and the writing is far superior to much of the work currently on the bookshelves. Recommended!

      Obviously, I was very pleased when I received it. So, I couldn't wait for this site to come back up so that I could post it. Now I'm hoping his kind review can help me get an agent.

      The second book is done. I just need to do a final read through and make sure that there are no typos etc.

      Thanks all.

          Out of curiosity, where did the soldiers that are depicted on the cover come from? From the thumbnail on amazon they look a little like units from Medieval Total War.

          Just curious.

          Good on you for getting published though. Not an easy thing to do these days.

            The publishing company did the cover. I was never pleased with it. The next cover will be WAY better.

              I am surprised this website has been down so long and has come back with so many of the old topics and threads.

              I bet youve got more whack now you're published.

              You can call your own tune, i hope.

                Well, if it was a mainstream publisher it might be different. With a POD, it's more just to get it out. There is no profit in it unless a few more people buy it. Hint...

                By the way, in case anyone is interested, the next book is done. I'm just waiting for the approval from the publishing company then I'll get it edited.

                    THat sounds like an interesting book to read.
                    I'm sorta looking for something new to read (new meaning, an author whose work I previosuly haven't read)

                    I will probably buy that (not sure how to go about that ATM, I assume I can get it in the uk somehow?

                      NM, I see it's on

                      Will grab it and since I get paid today, I'll probably buy it today sometime.

                          If I may be so bold, I just wanted to post that my third book is now available. Here is a link to it on Amazon:
