    1. Thanks for reblogging, Tim! And for being in on this from the beginning …

  4. I love your wonderful selfless act of helping authors…thank you for what you are doing!

  5. I just finished a novel that I have to recommend. It’s called Human Source Code by author Lubos Borik (www.lubosborik.com). This is the author’s debut book and it really has me excited for what will be next. The concept of the book really blew me away! It follows Detective Klapman on a hunt to expose an international organization who has been manipulating peoples very DNA, but to what end? (don’t want to spoil it!). It explores the subjects of DNA manipulation and how much of our very nature could be changed by it in a very interesting way. I love novels that leave me with questions and new ideas and this one definitely did and then some. The writing and character development is top notch as is the very unique storyline. This one will leave you with many questions and could be a frightening real prediction for the actual future!

    1. Thanks for your recommendation, Julia! If any other readers would like to include their own recommendations, please feel free to comment here.
