Sounds interesting, i've downloaded it for reading. Tell me athena, when you printed it off, did you you do it just like a book, or one page to one sheet? I'm contemplating printing this, as 500 pages will be hard on the eyes read on screen, and i like to have a big reading session.
Cracking cover again, another Mr * am i to presume?

That's a good question, Hawk. Yes, Athena, how much of your office's paper supply did you use? :) :)

Yup, that talented chap. :)

Hey guys... I've been quite busy so am only still in the first chapter, but I can already tell it will be great! But I was just wondering if anyone has had the chance to really crack into Joyce's "Off Balance"?

You did? You liked it?

*jumps up and down in excitement*

Yay! :)

Some things you especially liked, G? Or not so much?

And of course: does it make you want to read the sequel? :)

I'll try to be as spoiler free as possible.

I liked how you used the other 00-agents, especially the way you managed to incorporate elements from the Fleming novels into the story. The action sequences were well done and all of the good characters were richly drawn. A little more with the villains and maybe a little less of the IA duo might tighten up things a bit. Their part just doesn't seem to go anywhere. As for the sequel, I'm certainly looking forward to it.

You're right, those were my weak points and I'll certainly try to do a better job on that in the sequel.

Thanks for the comments. :)

Dear Fenna,

As a new member of CBN I'm looking forward to making the acquaintance of 009. I admire very much the dedication and hard work of all the fan fiction authors and only wish I could add to the burgeoning files of MI6 with a tale of my own. Sigh. I'll try and post some feedback in the future - but you might have to wait a while :-)

Great poster, by the way - it would be nice to see Brosnan do a 007 cameo in your film now that his licence has been revoked by EON/MGM...

Keep up the good work!

MESSAGE ENDS...MESSAGE ENDS...MESSAGE ENDS... :-)

Thanks to CBn, there is now a small Circle Trilogy website up, with a little information on the series. :)

More content to follow, perhaps a sneek peak at the new novel in the future? :)

Well, I've started working on the first few chapters, while still mapping the last ones out in detail. I feel there's still someting missing - mentally - for me to really get into it. I don't know what... but I'm going to find it. :)

Thanks for the comments everyone. :)

The cover was created by the talented Mr. Asterix. I don't know how he did it, but he did and it looks bloody great! :)

The woman on the cover is not me - I just gave Mr. Asterix a description of what I thought she would look like.

I'm glad you like my work! :) Thanks so much.

Ok, after 5 nights of nonstop reading I have to say this is the best fan fiction I've read in awhile. I definitely can't wait for the next one. Please hurry Joyce!

I'm delighted you liked it :) but I'll have to dissappoint you, Goldeneye... I'm aiming for a Christmas 2006 release... and it might even become summer 2007. :)
