I read 3 chapters on the bus this a.m. It’s fascinating to view locations mentioned in your book. In a way putting my imagination onto the reality. I’ve read a lot of fictions but never once have shown interest to go deeper or to view the web page of any writer.
Your preface content stirred up my curiosity on my way to work this a.m.. Well done…
