I truly cannot thank everyone enough for the huge amount of support I’ve received for the book. Hippocrates and The Hobgoblin: The Child of Mürindür has received a total of sixteen five-star reviews on Amazon, and it’s only been a little over a month since I published it! Many of you have reached out to me, and let me know how much the story meant to you as well as how touched you were to discover all the characters. I am thankful and grateful to know that people have found this story to be enjoyable.

Self-publishing isn’t easy. It’s difficult to break beyond the bubble of your local community with hopes that people across the country or even the world somehow stumble upon your small creation. Personal references and word of mouth are often all that one can truly rely on when considering a new book or fantasy experience. I didn’t write this story or create these characters for anything other than a desire to explore the issues we all feel and live with every day. I wanted a hero with PTSD, and I wanted to demonstrate bravery in a young heart with autism. I hoped to highlight the inequities of judging mental illness, and demonstrate redemption through compassion. The crux of immortality and mankind had to be explored with the thought that life is immeasurable, an impossible intangible meant to be enjoyed. I hope the tales of Mürindür reach more lives down the road, and until then, thank you for joining me on this journey!
