You know, I am starting to appreciate people, especially people who I have limited contact with, more and more.

I'm getting feedback as people get into the book or they finally finish it. Being honest with myself as always, as well as the community, a bulk of the feedback is good, some is neutral, and there are some criticism points. For one, people say they can see the engineer in me coming through the book, and although it's not a horrible thing, it doesn't offer the smootest read as some seasoned writers.

On another note, people seem to enjoy the story line. I have been told that the characters are well developed, but somethings are a little different than the traditional format. I was told this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just not the norm.

I have been asked when is the sequel coming by a few, and one written review called the book a diamond in the rough.

For a first time novelist, I guess that isn't too bad.

One other thing, I did notice that reviews and outlooks toward characters' personality and the dialogue varied between people's sex/race/hobbies/lifestyle choices. This shows how some people think alike while others may have a different line of thinking even when these individuals don't know each other from a can of paint.

Working on printing another 100. I'm shocked how these things are flying out. Two reviews posted so far.

Just curious. Has any fellow CB7Tuners taken a deep dive in to the book yet?

Okay. So, many people have been inquiring about a second book. Oh, when's the next one coming? Are you going to write a second one? You have to follow this up with another book! Will there be a sequel?

I've been pondering, thinking, and plotting. I've received some great feedback, and I've been thinking about what people would like to see transpire. I have some twists for your @ss coming in the next one. I'm about to start punching the keys for the second one - literally.

You can still buy a copy of Six Gears at www.athypowersports.com.

Any feedback from CB7 readers?

By popular demand, I've got the sequel's 1st chapter draft complete. 6,000+ words and pushing.

Grumpys93 seems to have made some friends!
So just finished reading Ant’s book last week. It took me a while due to my busy schedule and trying to find time to read. But when I was on a business trip last week I found a couple hours on a plane the perfect time to reading the Novel. It was a little slow in the beginning but this is no fault of the story, but simply providing us a background of the characters and setting the mood. It picks up very fast and I found myself reading faster as I go to find out what happens next.

For a first Novel it was very well written and thought out. My only dislike, but this is my own preference is; I found it at times to be too detail heavy and not allowing me to add my own flair to the story in my head.

Ant, did a decent job at trying to balance between readers like me who want less details and those readers who want to know more details like, what size pants they wear. (Not in the story, just an example). The character’s names take some getting use to, but you will eventually be able to work them with the story.

I do feel like this could be made into a movie one day with some work into it. If you are worried that this book will sound like the fast n furious franchise, you will be mistaken. Ant, does a great job sticking to his own thought process and not biting off on someone else’s idea.

I was one of those readers asking for a sequel. It was a good, easy read and there are cliff hangers sprinkled here and there. WELL WORTH THE READ!!! I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK to someone who is into our lifestyle of enjoying cars and a little bit of adrenaline.

Ant, feel free to take snips and pieces or the whole thing of my review and use it to highlight your book if you’d like.

This review/feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you, N! I'm glad you enjoyed the read. I got you on the sequel side of things. I'll be in touch.



People who know me well, they know I'm a man of my word. I'm striving hard to ensure the sequel is as easily a good read trekking toward being much better. Stay tuned.
