  1. I loved your book. My wife, who does not usually like this genre started reading it and could not put it down! Congrats

  2. I am so happy to see how the book turned out. I enjoyed reading the original draft but the final book is even better.

  3. One of the best books of this type I have read. I found it interesting and did not want to put it down. I hope you write a follow up.

  4. Loved the book! One of the best I’ve read in a long time. Can’t wait to see what Russell Baker gets in to next

  5. I stayed up all last night and finished the book. I could not wait to finish it. Loved it. Do you have Nancy’ or Miriam’s phone number? I would like to give one of them a call!

  6. Subsurface was another great story! I really enjoyed it. I didn’t really have a feel for where it might go from there, so I have no suggestions for you for a third book. I’d like to see the story continue though. I have to say that the new female is my favorite so far, and I totally agree, she could generate her own story!
