Comments:Hi Mr. Rhodes. Just had the opportunity to visit your site and was, what can I say, very impressed. I do plan on attending the next book signing (June is a quite busy month for me but I would love to attend). I had, however, some difficulty, printing the ticket to size. But I will get back to you soon on that at one of the email addresses. Thanks.

Comments:OMG, I just finished reading The Meeting Place and I am still laughing thinking about different chapters. Those ladies were hilarious. I hope that I am enjoying life as much when I reach the age of wisdom such as they have. I started laughing in the beginning of the book and could not stop until I finished it. A wonderful story in which I could envision everything that occurred. Thank you so much, Mr. Rhodes for the laughter, truly food for the soul!!!!

Comments:E.L. - Your book "The Serialization of discontent" was our book clubs book of the month (We absolutely loved it!) I am sending and invitation via email in hopes that you will be available sometime in the near future to stop by one of our gatherings for a sit down discussion. We have already selected "The Meeting Place" for March, perhaps you can join us sometime in that month. I will send you an email with our club president's email attached. It would be a real treat if you could stop by (since we're local). Look forward to meeting you Marleen Spencer P.S. Loved the website

He reffered me to this site because I am the marketing consulant for an upstart independent book publishing house. We only have two books in print currently. I would love to discuss the ways in which you used to sell your books. Did you use any the digitial marketplace or went traditional? What turned out to have the best results for you? I would appreciate your advice greatly. Please contact me by email or cell 301-442-0576

Comments:My boyfriend has given me an copy of each one of your books (his way of entertaining me - lol). I find your books to be well written and easy to read. "A Flaming Rose" & "The Meeting Place" were extremely funny! Just from reading your books, I imagine you must be a VERRRRRRRY interesting person, with VERRRRRRY interesting friends. :-) I guess as long as you continue to write (and I'm hoping you have many more stories to tell), my boyfriend will continue to entertain me with "Specially Autographed" copies of your books. Keep up the good work & thanks for the diversion!!

Comments:E.L. How do you do it? Each of your books are so different. I really like your style of writing too. Your second book hung me over the edge and held me there then dropped me when I least expected it but this one kept me in tears. I literally laughed until I cried, it was hillarious. I am so looking forward to your next one but until then I’m reading The Meeting Place once more. Selena

Name:R. Powlette
Comments:I really enjoyed reading ‘The Meeting Place’. The author’s ability to describe the characters, their surroundings and their interactions gave me the ability to visualize everything very vividly and this makes for great storytelling. The separate tales of three women and their interesting lives combined with the tale of their interactions together late in life provide the reader with sadness and laughter. This is a good book to read if you have trouble finishing a book because the author ensures you will not lose interest and there is a great twist in the end that I certainly didn’t see coming.
February 2, 2010 14:37:39 (GMT Time)

Comments:What can I say…I thoroughly enjoyed your first two books! They were so diverse; I can’t wait to read your third book! A Flaming Rose was entertaining, comical and priceless. Does Melvin know you wrote a book about him? He is truly a piece of work, and I think I’ve seen him on the Metro. Serialization of Discontent was like being on a suspenseful roller coaster ride and it took everything in me to keep from looking at the back of the book to find out “who done it”. I was totally captivated and completely surprised by the ending!! God has truly blessed you with many gifts! Thanks for sharing some of your gifts with us and I know you will be successful in all that you do!

Comments:The Serialization of Discontent was Outstanding!!!! I borrowed a copy of this book from a friend who suggested that I read it (we exchange books often). It was very different and interesting. I visited your website to find out what other books that you have put out because I would love to read more of your work. I have already ordered "A Flaming Rose" and plan to read everything that you put out. After looking through your photos on the site I realized that not only are you a very talented and interesting man but a VERY handsome man as well. I would love to meet you some day. - A New Fan

Comments:Mr. Rhodes, I have read your first book and have just finished the second and I must say that I am truly very angry with you! A Flaming Rose was very funny, full of suspense, and an easy read. Your new book is nothing like I expected. I thought that it was a continuation of A Flaming Rose! To my surprise it was very different and down right excellent! I began reading it and became angry when I found out that it wasn't the sequel then got even angrier when I couldn't figure out who was behind the murders. This book too, although different (and not the sequel that I am waiting for) was an outstanding read. Again, JOB WELL DONE!!! Angry Reader (but devoted fan)

I wish you nothing but success in all your endeavors and I look forward to reading your books. BTW, since I now live in Florida, how do I go about getting a personally autographed copy? Much love ~ Vicki

The first one had me on the floor laughing and the second one meant more to me then the story you told, even though it is a great story....I was wrong in my conclusion of the story, but that's what it's about when you read a book, right? I am very proud to have known you for more then 23 years, even though we lost touch for a long time. Hopefully we can make up for the time lost...that said, hurry up with the next book, I need something to read! Luv u

Comments:Mr. Rhodes, I have not had the opportunity to read your first book but I will. I have however had the opportunity to just complete your new book "The Serialization of Discontent". If your first book is or half as exciting as this one you have a supporter for life. I couldn't put it down and the ending was truly outstanding! It blew me away to say the least. Please add me to your mailing list so that I may be informed of any book signings that you might have in my area as I would very much like both of my copies autographed. Best Regards, D.

Comments:Latest update from the previous message. Nothing but blessings. IJLU. Any who, now that I have finished the first two books, my retired time is just not working for me. I need the third book NOW!!!!!! Just throw a couple of pages my way. I will probably not get on with Retirement until the Vistor is complete. I got nothing but Love for you, and time to actually sit and read your books. I'm reading others as well, but reading your books is almost lifelike stories (smile), imagine sitting and watching your book as a movie. The paramedics need to be close, and I mean very close. Tell Perry to move over, or contact you for a hit in his studio.

I had real work to do (like school), but I had to keep reading to see what your crazy butt would come up with next. I just wish your "Pops" could be here to see this. I know "The Hammer" is loving this. I pray for your continued success and many wonderful things for you. I love you forever.

Comments:Hilarious! This book is a page turner, from the very first page. The story kept me totally entertained with tales of rags to riches, office drama, gold diggers and ghosts! The tale flows nicely from chapter to chapter, and with each passing chapter, I was pulled more and more into Melvin's antics, until the final pages of the story, which left me laughing and shaking my head. Great read - can't wait for the sequel! :)

Comments:Mr.Rhodes - I purchased your book from I was riding on the metro and the lady beside me was reading your book. She kept laughing and wiping her eyes so I thought that it must be pretty funny. I finally asked her what she was reading. She gave me the name of the book. She wasn't sure where I could get it as it was passed over to her by a friend, but your email address was penciled on the back page. I wrote it down and I was able to purchase the book. I started reading it the same day that I had received it. Let me first say that I am an avid reader. I read constantly (at least 3 books per week). I have to say, your book has been added to my "favorite books to read" list. It was one of the funniest books that I have ever read. Each page was full of excitement and comedy. It was something different and very enjoyable. I will be on the look out for your next book. That too seemed very interesting and exiting. Keep up the wonderful work, we can always use a good laugh. -S

Can't wait for the next one, but this time, can you keep that lil' old stank h* out of it. Excellent read. Cheri (Hey Regi read the whole thing too, which is unusual for him; he only reads non-fictionals; so kudos for that--well, I'm sure he only read the complete book because he's your neighborhood homey :-).
