Mr. Flint, I loved all three books of your "Jao Empire" series. May I suggest, you should write a fourth one, maybe a prequel? A story that takes place during the terrible Jao campaign to subdue humanity. Of course, some old characters could be shown as younger versions of themselves, and some of the humans might observe strange behavior or speech by the Jao invaders, and wonder about its significance, although your readers will of course understand. And maybe even depict a human state which has reluctantly decided to surrender and collaborate with the Jao, already understanding that the newcomers' victory is inevitable, and wanting to prevent needless devastation and deaths. Of course, they would be loathed by many. Isn't the story of the Jao invasion worth a volume to itself? Please consider it! Thank you!

The Ring of Fire books website ( appears to have problems. The sign up for the newsletter does not connect to anything and there are similar problems with the other headings. I could not find anywhere else to report this, hope it is not inappropriate.

Eric, you and I were friends during our freshman year of high school at Sierra Joint Union High in Tollhouse, CA. You lived at Shaver Lake and I lived at Meadow Lakes just down the hill. We played a lot of chess (you usually won). You introduced me to Edgar Rice Burroughs. I read every thing he ever wrote; even the Tarzan Twins. Not that great a word smith, but the stories were good. The last time I saw you was in LA. I was visiting my aunt in Westwood. We went and saw Midnight Cowboy and went for ice cream after. I think the coffee was 35 cents. I couldn't believe that coffee could cost that much. You told me at that time, that you wanted to write science fiction. Some dreams come true. If you get the yend, drop me a line. Rick...

I'm impressed. You've really raised the bar with that.

Binko Barnes says, The significant isesus she raises are the clueless marketing of publishers in the digital age and the unimportance of the physical edition of a book. First, traditional publishers are not quite as clueless as the majority or wanabee authors who run traditional publishers down think they are. Results don't lie. The traditional publishers are still making great profits. And they will adjust with the times.Second the unimportance of the physcial edition of the book is a really naive statement. My The Joy of Not Working still sells almost 5,000 copies a year in print edition twenty years after it was published. My self-published How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free still sells over 15,000 copies a year eight years after it was published. How many ebooks sell this many copies? Incidentally, although I have two books published on Kindle, I still don't have the two above books (which earn me about $85,000 a year) published as ebooks. I have two new books in mind that I will publish independently in print without giving much thought to ebook versions, simply because I know that the print versions will do extremely well (as well as my retirement books) and the ebook versions will make a pittance just like the ebooks published by 98 percent of the authors gleeful that they can now self-publish.Jane Friedman in a recent article in Writer's Digest magazine poses this as one of the most important questions for people considering self-publishing their book: Do your readers prefer print or digital? Jane Friedman's question is so basic. Yet it is important and overlookedby most people (talk about clueless). I read blogs and articles by people claiming to be book experts saying that ebooks are definitely the way to go without giving consideration to print books. None of these so-called experts have ever posed this important question. This just shows that they are not even close to being as astute as Jane Friedman. Neither is Penelope Trunk.Ernie J.

I often saw your series in bookstores and was intrigued by it, but never seemed to pick it up. I teach Advanced Placement history and psychology and was going away for a week to do the annual grading of AP exams. For some reason I felt that I had to buy a few of the books in your Ring of Fire series and give it a shot. Let me say, while I wasn't grinding away reading psychology essays, I was entranced by your work. For awhile I've had a fascination with the 30-years war and I loved your books completely. In the week of grading I devoured 1632, the Ring of Fire anthology, and made it half-way through 1633 which I have continued to read since I got home from the grading. Well done! I'm sure my friends are sick about how much I have been raving about this series, but I can't stop gushing. I love the insights into the Wars of Religion that you offer and look forward to reading the rest of the series. Thank you for bringing so much enjoyment with your writing.

Eric, I was just thinking about you yesterday (if this is you -- you might remember my name from HS drama class) and wondering how you fared in life. Would love to be in touch, if you're willing. Will be in LA in June, if that matters. So glad I found you. (If it is you. . . If not, my apologies for taking up space on your website.)
