Shameless Self-Promotion - First Review of my Novel

I hope y'all don't mind, but I recently received the first professional, independent review of my album, Deadly Vision. The novel hasn't been published yet, but my editor sought out an independent editor to review the book prior to her accepting to represent it. Not only did this give her impetus to represent the novel but it also gave her a review to pass on to the publishers to help her sell it.

Now, of course, I was a bit psyched when this came in, so if you don't mind, I'd like to share it with you. Feel free to pass this on to any publishers you'd like. :)

Here's my first review! Please send your thoughts.

The reader has a front row seat as Severin leads you into the world of virtual reality medicine and a graphic journey into the life in ER trauma care. Add to that some very surprising twists, well developed and quirky characters and you have a first rate thriller.

Todd Severin's Deadly Vision is one of the best Techno-thrillers I have read. He may be the new and improved Michael Crichton. This fast paced novel smoothly combines the author's fluency in both the medical field and the science of computer technology to escort the reader into the expanding world of virtual reality. Add Machiavellian politics, corporate espionage and murder and you have a novel the reader doesn't want to put down. I was highly entertained.

As an editor, I would add that this manuscript is well written and will require a minimum amount of editing. I'm impressed. Thank you for the opportunity to review his work.

Wow - you must be thrilled. Well deserved after all your work and efforts. It is what we all dream of...Ahhh, one day...

Tremendous progress and I wish you all the very best. When it is published I shall buy on amazon and get you to sign a copy.

You must be over the moon with that review.
Its is great to see dreams come true.
I have only just started writing and am a long way off a novel, but this gives us all hope.

Kind regards,

I would pick up that book in a heartbeat after reading your agent's push (which would make a great cover review). I hope you are published soon. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

I wonder if you would remember me. I used to live in San Diego and first met you at a Karaoke night at Carlos Murphys many, many moons ago.
