The unknown Writer

I read a lot of DQS's work and was never disappointed. WWWM is certainly one of his best. Highly recommended.

Great story. Just finished reading this vol. the second time. DQS does a great job of making the reader feel like part of the story. I sometimes felt like I was there in Jacksonville. Can't wait for Vol. 3.

Review by: Dayton Robinson on April 24, 2012 :
I initially read the serialized version from the internet and found it a great read - so much so that there were a couple of nights that I just couldn't put the story down. I re-read a major part of the story in Volume 2 because I enjoyed the first read so much - and Volume 2 carries the story seamlessly forward. The plot continues to 'twist and turn'; the characters 'come to life' with believable emotions; it's erotic without being cheesy. I can't wait for Volume 3.

DSQ1 is undoubtedly one of the best author in this genre. You really get drawn into and feel the emotional state of the character. I love all the stories that he has written and have read them multiple times. Don't take my word for it, find it out yourself. Great author and great stories. Thank you.

Having read WWWM 1 I was enthralled from the opening page. The characters grow and become important as they slide thru Bill & Debbie's world. I really like the pace and the intrigue. I admire Maitlands principles and his desire to do the right thing no matter what.
Brilliant writing conveying emotion character depth and passion. Kudos DQS for giving us such a terrific read and a story that begs you to turn the page,

Review by: Norman Dodd on Jan. 31, 2012 :
Book 1 was great. From a simple 4-word phrase (“When we were married”) has arisen a complex and riveting story with far greater boundaries and sub plots than could have been foreseen in the first few chapters.

Now I have finished Book 2 and it has left me wanting more of this fascinating tale. Unfortunately I will have to wait a few months for Book 3. I console myself with the thought that some things are worth waiting for and this definitely is. The central theme is Bill and Debbie’s story, but there is so much more to savor. Although I cannot, on the one hand, wait for the next chapters, I will on some level be sad when the story finally ends.

The author’s style is energetic, passionate – at times ‘driven’ – but always entertaining. He has a heck of an imagination and the talent to follow through on it. This is the kind of story where you realize, with a start, that 6 hours of your day passed without you having done anything except lounge and read. My interest was held throughout. In fact I could not put the e-book away until I had finished it.

Excellent – 5 stars

Review by: Lauren Richins on Jan. 28, 2012 :
This one, if anything, is better then the first one. I originally read parts of this online but with the added material in this book definitely worth purchasing it, there is a lot more in this that extends the plot further.

DQ Steele is a great writer, he writes characters you can believe and puts them in realistic yet at the same time incredible situations that don't flag. For me, the most incredible thing is within the arc of the story, the main characters (deb and bill) , whom I started out not liking and not deeply caring about, turned into two people I am rooting for, and being more of a romantic then I would admit to, hoping they do get back together. DQS keeps us involved in the story but also doesn't telescope where he is going with it, it is maddeningly unclear where things are going with this story, which of course is a good thing:)

Course, the fact I have to wait a couple of months to read the next volume is going to drive me nuts,but oh well, at least it isn't years.

Review by: Frank Berger on Jan. 23, 2012 :
DQ Steele is a wonderful author. His stories are riveting with excellent characters and character development. His plots are devious with many a twist and turn. I simply want to continue reading, and am distraught that part three will be along in three to six months.
