This book is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents either are products of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
I would also like to thank Douglas Harter for doing an excellent job of editing the book. He made the finished product much easier to read.
More than anything, I’d like to thank everyone who ever gave something I wrote a negative review. These reviews keep me driven to improve my writing. Without them, I’d still be producing lackluster work.
