Ooh! It's here!

I would just like to take a moment to thank Jim and especially Mr.* - who worked very hard to get this novel up in perfect shape. :)

Thank you so much.

Congrats Joyce.

Easily the finest work I've read as of late.

And as one of the fellow "Wankers" in your acknowledgements, I have to say:

Thanks Luv. :)

I thaught mabey,that you have translated your writing dutch version in english.
(Dutch: Ik dacht dat je meschien jou Nederlands gescreven versie hebt laten vertalen in engels.)

About a year ago, Joyce Carrington asked me to help edit her work, and I was absolutely amazed that she asked me. After all, what I saw that day didn't need any editing.

Since that day, she has continued to send me chapters, and I have continued to be amazed and impressed by the depth of her skill.

What she has created in Off Balance would make Ian Fleming sit up and take notice.

Congratulations Joyce. In the next few weeks you are going to get a lot praise for this work, and you have earned every word.

Thanks for the congrats everyone! I really hope you enjoy reading this. Yes, I know it's a bit long... :) Athena, printing it out? Seriously? :) :)

The next part of the trilogy can only get better if you give me your opinions - positive and negative - so please, post them here or let me know at joycecarrington@hotmail.com.

Bryce, no thanks needed. It's just simply the truth. :)

M_Balje: Nee helaas, ik heb het alleen in het Engels geschreven. Misschien dat er ooit nog een vertaling komt in het Nederlands... maar ik zou er niet op gaan wachten. Sorry.

Tarl... :)

Thanks everyone. :)

Congrats, Joyce! 512 pages, wow. An impressive piece of work indeed. Cannot read it at once, as I'm just working myself through the English Flemings. Next on the list is Jim's JAK, but after that...

But I'd highly recommend to print this out. Impossible to read that much onscreen and extremely bad for your eyes. 512 pages... sounds like Friday night at the office :)

So much to read, so little time...

Seriously, this looks as though it will be superb, and will certainly post my thoughts as I read it (as opposed to one huge post at the end). And once again, the artwork is stunning (whoever does these really should do so as a profession).

Good God, 512 pages. :) Makes my piddly little short stories that I write seem all the more useless. :)

Congratualtions, Miss Geelhoed. :) I'll get started on it ASAP. And then report back next September.
