My friend Ian Sales reviewed Cinco de Mayo and he deserves an award for Bravery in an Awkward Position. We’ve been friends for more than a decade. He read early chapters and actually helped me shape one the book’s central characters, Sultan. Anyone who knows Ian, knows that doesn’t make a wink of difference. The work is what matters. He takes the craft of writing very seriously, and science fiction a little more so. Putting him in an odd position. He could’ve ignored the whole thing. Instead, he plunged in.
Luckily, my book is so vastly awesome Ian found a galaxy of nice things to say. My book really is like a holiday that way. It makes everyone happy.
