Thank you for taking the time to read my book. I appreciate everyone that chooses to visit the products of my imagination.

The sheer act of writing things to share with others has given me a new appreciation for both the power and the cost of the written word. I have learned that just like sleep is an optional luxury for single parents, so is it an expendable currency for writers. The drive to write, to create, can be relentless. I find myself taking notes at strange times, wanting to discuss space battles in the middle of expensive restaurants, and other behavior that only a loving and tolerant spouse could accept.

Comments and feedback can, of course, be entered into Amazon and Goodreads. But you can also reach me at taki@technologymage.com or by signing up for my newsletter at http://www.takidrake-author.com/.
The blog also will let you know about the things that are new with me and some sneak peaks and advanced information about publication.
