Wohoo! I just received my ebook from Fantastic Books. Great! :D

Congratulations, Drew, for going through with this, and finishing marvelously! I thoroughly enjoyed following you on this exciting ride, I'm happy for you, and—last but not least—I wish you many, many, many readers for Elite: Reclamation and for all you books. :D :D :D (Now where's the :thumbs up: emoticon when you need it?)

Looking forward to hearing what folks think about the story. :) And that you spot the nods to Oolite that made it through... :D

Cheers,

Thanks for those of you taking the time to comment, much appreciated!

I'd really appreciate your help with this next request. You've had the book for a while and I hope you've enjoyed it.

As you know Amazon is by far the biggest retailer of books, ebook or otherwise, and nowadays a book lives or dies on its Amazon rating.

If you're a customer of Amazon, and if you feel so inclined, I'd really appreciate a review against Elite: Reclamation on their site.

This is by far the biggest thing you can do for me right now, so if you've enjoyed the ride and would like to show your appreciation... don't clap, don't even throw money, please give me a review! :)

Here's the link to ER on Amazon.

Many thanks in advance for your support, Commanders. Right on and I'll write on!

Cheers,

Drew.

Really enjoyed the book Drew, what a story! Started out trying to limit myself to one chapter per night before bed, that soon went up to two chapters then up to two and a half, just had to read on way past bedtime to find out what was going to happen next!
Good luck with your next book project too, the preview chapter at the end of Elite: Reclamation was a really fab bonus!

It's Friday, it's time for an ER update. Reviews are coming in... what did folks make of my story?

http://www.drewwagar.com/progress-repor ... -reviewed/

If you've enjoyed my book and haven't yet been able to review it, please consider doing so. It's been very life-affirming reading the reviews from folks who've enjoyed my tale in the Elite: Dangerous universe and I hope you've spotted the Oolite references now immortalised in the Elite canon! All reviews very much appreciated by me and will ultimately drive the possibility of a sequel and the ability to write on, Commanders...

Drew.
