    Hi Paul,

    I’m a friend of Mike Luoma’s and I heard a teaser for “The Black” on his podcast. I’m into chapter 4 and really enjoying it. I promised him I’d let you know.

    I’ll be sure to check the rest of your work.

    I came across The Black on my way to OKC to visit a client. After downloading The Black and hearing coring mentioned (I was a coring engineer for nine years) I’m now hooked. Fantastic story, great characters and suburb writing! On my way home (DFW) I found myself taking the long way home so I could continue to listen. Well done and cheers!

    It seems that a lot of my favorite authors are having the next book in their series coming out in the next eight weeks.

    But I just discovered (forty years too late) an author from Providence, RI. I was looking on your site to see if you mention him anywhere as an influence. Since he obviously was, looking at the graphic for your next book!

    Yes! So now I have yet ANOTHER book to look forward to! And, YOU will be performing your book again! I have listened to JC Hutchins and Scott Sigler perform their books, and I prefer it that way. Especially since you performed the first two books.

    Can’t wait!

    Paul, I was on Patreon today and I noticed that an account that was created in 2014 under your name. Is this your account?

    I may have found the back-story to The Black… http://bit.ly/28LpiKV

    THANKS for all the fun entertainment. Your stuff is not just a rehash of stuff already on the SyFy Channel!

    Really loved Derelict: Marines and can’t wait for the next book.

    One question though, you seem to use ‘grav-walking’ and ‘mag-walking’ interchangably… is there a difference between the 2 as it didn’t seem to be spelt out in the text?
