  1. Classy! classy and well deserved!

  2. Just read The Rider in this anthology, and loved it. It was the kind of story that pulled me in and made me want more. Great character interactions, and a world with so much potential for many different kinds of stories! I will be watching for any novels you write in this or any other fictional universe. Thank you!
