Calub - Yes, we are friends now with Wayne Thomas Batson. However, we had not met or read his "Door Within" trilogy until after our book was written. I see some of those similarities that you picked up on too. Love Wayne's work and count it an honor to ever be thought of in the same category/style. If you ever get a chance to meet him in person, jump at the chance. He's a great guy!
Hi Calub - Sorry it took me awhile to reply. I love all your ideas - Chris and I would love to see our stories as films one day, or to hold a Veritas sword (even if it didn't work). We actually have sold the gaming rights to a game developer, so, who knows, we might see some more online games coming soon. I like how your enthusiasm! If and when these things come to fruition, this website will be the place to hear about it. So stick around. Have an awesome day... (PS - I deleted your previous comments on my profile page as they contained your email address for everyone to see. Please be careful about sharing that publicly.)
