Debbie of Friesenpress, to her credit, needed to coerce me to hand over the manuscript for review. I held it tight, unwilling. She reminded me that it will not resemble its current state by the time it gets to publication.
Debbie was correct.
So imagine my surprise at the editor’s response to my manuscript submission.
And I quote, “I am very impressed with this manuscript. It feels like it was written by a seasoned author who has spent years developing his craft. In terms of tone, for me it lands somewhere between William Gibson and David Mitchell. It’s highly literary, authoritatively technical, and it asks some intriguing ethical questions.”
High praise indeed. Validation for the question burning behind my eyes at all times, "is this book any good?"
Insight into the meandering and creative side of my curious and exploratory mind.
