  4. Thanks so much for the comments. It means so much as we are first time writers, and we’re so pleased that people are taking notice of it. Lazarball was written to be a fast paced, exciting project that would be assessable to all, and we’re just thrilled that the feedback is so positive.

    For those who don’t know much about it think THUNDERCATS meets PLANET OF THE APES…with elements of TRON.

    Enjoy!!! 🙂

  8. I agree, Charles. The writing is muscular, thrilling. It draws you right inside the skin of the protagonist, Clinton, so the reader experiences the chase.
