  1. Thank you so much for your feedback! I think I rushed that line and it didn't come out sounding right. I'm glad you said that, I forgot to post the link to this story as an eBook. I'm going to put the link in after making this comment. Did you mean expanding the story into a novel? Thanks again for your great comments! You made my day! I might say that whenever I get nice comments, but it's true!

  2. Wow, thanks. I'll think about it. I wanted a short story to put out for Halloween and my sister in law told my wife and I how she was going to join her friend who was house sitting in a huge house. Her friend said she was creeped out being there all alone and the story idea just went from there. I also had the idea a few weeks earlier that if I was driving at gunpoint, what would I do to get out of it and had the idea to try and take the person's seat belt off just before crashing. I have written 3 full novels, and one shorter one (a novella) - but I haven't published any of them yet. They need some revision and editing, which I'm finding takes forever compared to a short story :) I am over halfway through revising one of them, a science fiction adventure novel, and then I'll be publishing it once I get some feedback from some readers to see if they can find stuff to improve in the story. If you want to be one of those beta readers just send me an email (danabso[at]hotmail[dot]com) and I'll put you on the list. I'm going to make a new page today on my website listing my writing projects including novels I have and will write. Thanks again for your encouragement and great feedback. I really appreciate it!
