  1. I did! 🙂 I still have to read your novels too. Just swamped. But I will, sooner or later. Thank you!

  2. Thank you! Before I forget to mention this, I appreciate the last sentence of the story being in the present tense. Creates present, so to speak, possibilities. Magic seems to be on the rise.

    The story is a treat, a gift. I enjoy all the folkloric parts and the conversations between Samuel and Siranela. We have forests here, sadly not so much old-growth. But I shall appreciate them in a new way, now, while I’m looking and listening for dryads.

    Thank you! again. Stay safe and well.

    • So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for the thoughtful feedback! You’ll enjoy my novel “The Cardinal” if you like that genre. Would you be willing to write such a review on Smashwords? It would help prospective readers get a sense of what others think about it.

  3. Very nice. Probably the best compliment I can offer is that I wanted it to go on. The possibilities for expansion are all there. I wanted to know all the characters better, including Starburst.

    • I may stretch it into a novella; I agree, I wanted to write more, but it’s a good discipline for me to write short stories… my mind automatically goes down complex plotlines and character developments, but as you know, a good novel can take several years. I’m working on a science fiction novel at the moment, so a longer Merging will need to wait.

  4. Entrancing! I enjoyed The Merging very much. Thank you for sharing it.
