From America, I’ve had my first negative review for the Audio version of ‘Echoes’. I have to say its a little bit harsh. Although, after looking at his other reviews he does seem to be harsh with everyone.
My response to Alpha20’s review is the following.
I am sorry that you did not enjoy the Audio version of ‘Echoes of a Storm’, and as a paying customer you have every right to have your say. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to write and post a review. Something I wish other people would do more often; although I would hope for a more positive reaction.
However, I feel your review is overly harsh (although it is in keeping with your other reviews) and I of course totally disagree with all your comments especially about the narrator.
I fully support my choice of voice actress and I think she had done a wonderful job of bringing the book alive. From the many positive comments and posts I have received, I can say with confidence that the vast majority of my Readers and Listeners agree with me.
As for my story being boring, that is your point of view and I respect that.
I hope you find something more to your taste
Reviews are really important Ladies and Gentleman, please (yes I know I sound like a broken record) if you enjoy any of my novels in any format, leave a review. I do read them all.

After my wonderful review for “The Y Front Stand Off,” I have now got 2 great reviews for “The Y Front Chronicles”.
It is interesting that all the reviews for both the “The Y Front Chronicles” and the “The Y Front Standoff” are from ladies.
Have I been pitching the advertising for this book at the wrong target audience? It’s a thought.
Alan Scott has written a wonderfully funny and dark story about murder and mayhem.
I suppose it could be read as a warning about the consequences of training our soldiers too well. The thought did not enter my mind until the classroom situation. But, yeah, that could work.
A man with his own brand of conscience and his pet hamster, TF. A killer with a pet hamster. Not much like the hamster I used to own and adore. SCoT-01 is a fun and terrifying person I would hope to always keep on my side. His hamster, too.
I’ve been very lucky to get the following excellent review for my short story “The Y front Stand off.”
Funny and sexy, what more could you want?, 25 Aug. 2015
This review is from: The Y Front Standoff (The Y Front Chronicles Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
A sequel to the superb Y Front Chronicles, this short story has managed to ramp up the laughs tenfold. The parody of daytime TV is hilarious (and makes me think that the author watches it more often than he should).
And then there’s the masterful hero of the story, SCoT-01 who just oozes sex appeal in those Y fronts of his. Move over
Christian Grey, there’s a new guy in town.
I’ve just received a new review for “Echoes” from the USA
5.0 out of 5 stars A scary, brutal masterpiece of horror…, May 12, 2014
This review is from: Echoes of a Storm (The Storm Series) (Kindle Edition)
Alan Scott has written a most disturbingly wonderful horror tale. It’s filled with the devious and dark characters who so make a good read. The plots possess subplots and the characters possess possessions. I couldn’t put it down. I literally carried it with me for days, catching every spare moment to read more of this story. I highly recommend it to all horror fans. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Bravo!Gaston Sanders, Author.
A huge thank you to Gaston for his kind words
