Over the years, I've dabbled in many things, including MS Paint and I've perfected my skills as an artist. The Prometheus-class(The Twilight Legacies: The Sixth Eye) was one of the easiest starship schematics to produce and now, able to render in 3D format using Corel's Bryce 7 program.

Amazon Review!! 5 Stars!!

First Amazon Review!! I am not only thankful, but excited about the details the reader puts into the review. After many, many years of research, writing, editing, revising and lastly publishing my manuscript has finally come forward. I believe the reviewer sums it up nicely. I hope that this review will encourage those skeptical about the novel to perhaps give it a chance.

Amazon Review:

"This book by new author M.J. Stoddard is an impressive work. I have read other works by Phillip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clark, and Stanislaw Lem, so I really enjoy good science fiction. Stoddard's descriptive writing immerses you into the world he created, gull of vast universes and interesting characters. You are immediately drawn into Stoddard's world in the prologue which give the rich history of the beings that inhabit this universe. We meet the enigmatic Blain Ross the protagonist of the book, and follow him on an absorbing and rewarding journey of well written science fiction only to be left on the edge of our seat waiting for the sequel. Great first book from this up and coming author."

It would be appreciated if you pass this along to your friends, tweet about it, because the end result could be "The Twilight Legacies: The Sixth Eye" as a movie. Thank you all for your support!!
