I thoroughly enjoyed your book and look forward to the next installment. I can see from here you can really take off. You’ve caught a very authoritative yet kindly voice that communicates truthfulness and makes a very good case for how we might slide into contact with higher intelligences.
I liked the characterizations in general and hope that our heroine will become a little less resistant in the subsequent books. Thanks again for a splendid and intelligent read."
From Nova Scotia:
Wow! What a great work! I loved it - read it straight thru - about15 hours, including a stint b/w 1:30 - 4 a.m.). Imagine my eyes popping as I read the part about Nova Scotia! I can't say enough about it - love that it's about LOVE and the eternity of it... love the organization of the colonies. Chuckled at the board members' names. Well done. Thank you! Monica K.
From Arcadia, California:
Hi, I don't know if you remember talking with me a few years ago, but I wanted to tell you I am reading "The Zooid Mission" and am enjoying it very much. Donna has lent it to our group in Arcadia, CA, and we are all enjoying it one by one. I thought I would send my regards to you. Love, Jennie D..
From Post Falls, Idaho:
Awesome Gerdean! Congratulations!!! You gotta' read this one folks! It's a page turner. I had the Privilege of reading "The Zooid Mission" while it was still in manuscript form (pre final editing) and it was an Exceptionally written Book --- writing style and story line Superb. I read Lots and Lots of books and I Know whereof I speak! You will Not be disappointed. Now the only question is... WHEN'S THE NEXT ONE, Sister Dearest?? -- God's Love, after a little detour through me, to You! Your Brother in Service, Daniel
Send us two! Please address them to both of us. We will keep one here and
pass the other around to be read or encouraged to be read by family, etc.
Congratulations is such a little word! How do you say more after a life has
been spent to do what you believe was the Father's will?
From Southeast Idaho:
Hi, my friend, I am in my third reading of your great story, two by manuscript and now the book. It is much easier to read the book, of course. I consider this story to be one of the finest I have ever read! It is very captivating in its theme, characters and movement. Despite it's fantasy structure, it is very believable. The use of vivid description for the thoughts and emotions of the characters vies with the lush portrayal of the physical environment. It is a book I would recommend to anyone interested in spirituality, fantasy, or science fiction. In fact, I would recommend it to anyone! Carry on. Oh, yes, what does "Book One" mean? Is there a sequel planned? Love, Isaac
From Santa Fe, New Mexico:
I love Gerdean's book. I think also JL in Tallahassee would love it since she has been wanting to start or join a zooidal type community for years. I find myself slowing down the reading as the end of the book comes near, so I won’t finish it so soon. Anxiously awaiting the sequel. Love to all. Renault.
Dear Gerdean, Donna and I just completed reading "The Zooid Mission" together. We would take turns reading it to each other. Donna would read to me when we were traveling and I was driving the car, a four hour trip and a few chapters later it seemed like but a moment in time. Your book is wonderful! It felt like Donna and I were Zooids and hearing about the contact with our other-than-Urthly brothers and sisters. Donna and I enjoyed your book very much and look forward to Book 2. Hopefully Donna and I will be making a trip to Albuquerque next year and would very much like to come to your Teaching Mission Group Meeting. Live in our Father's LOVE, Larry & Donna
Gerdean, You are a wonderful talented writer! I so enjoyed your book. In fact, it kept me up at night until I had finished reading it. Your descriptive style pulled me right into the "Zooid Way" and brought smiles as I recognized many of the names. I felt a closeness with the concepts that you put forth from the Urantia Book. You have great gifts and I thank you for sharing them. Blessings to you and Angus. Marlene O.
Dear Gerdean, My, what a scholar you are. I am sooo impressed. The dialog flows naturally and the scenarios are totally believable. I was impressed with the descriptions of the trip to Spain. I think I went there with her. I haven't finished it yet, as I have a vision problem that makes reading difficult. But I am enjoying it very much, and I thank you. When can we expect the movie? In the meantime, I would like it on cassette, unabridged and "as read by the author". Much love, Helen
Dear Gerdean, Just finished your new book. Just wanted to say it was great! No, not great, it was fantastic. No, that's not right. How about it was absolutely out of this world! Anyway, I loved it. My only complaint was it had to end. I don't suppose book 2 will be coming out any time soon? Cybelle reminds me of an extraordinary beautiful "supernal" … named Elianna who has been assigned to me and is a ascending daughter of the Mother Spirit. Sort of a cousin to the Seraphim. But as much as I beg, she will not take on human form. Oh well. I would love to hear more about Athena's help in writing your book. Take Care. Rick
Hey darlin' -- I was home really sick with a cold this week, and it was a marvelous time for me to experience your book. I expected kind of a spirtual-air type thang, and what do I find??? It's like a Sydney Sheldon page burner with an alien twist!! My fever was the only thing that kept me from reading cover to cover!! Audley is in Spain rite now, and Doc Will and "Lenton" just left to go visit Jesse, and Sylvia is boon docking in her Armani safari outfit rite now. This is great.........the mass public would LOVE this. honestly, i don't like to read books like this, cuz they interrupt with my sleep. I usually save them for vacation when it doesn't matter what I do, your writing style is so natural.....I was just "there" from the start as Audley got ready for the airport. And when you switch from perspective of character to another one, it shifts naturally ..... doesn't feel awkward. THANK YOU THANK YOU for the gift of this delightful book! Way to go, babe! Love, Miriam
Three from LaReen:(1) Dam you Gerdean. Had a busy day scheduled, but got side tracked by starting your book an hour and a half ago. Can't put it down. Gots to get my Saturday cleaning done, so I can go to a tea party with the girls at 1:00. Get to dress up and eat cucumber sandwiches. It looks like I will be reading well into the night. Haven't been this excited about a book for 6 years. Love you much
(2) Hello Dear Sister, Can't talk long as I am in Spain right now having a cup of coffee . Boy did that take me back to Spain -- the cafe off the plaza with the fountain in the middle. I smeled and saw the coffee from the big urn dropping two globs into my cup and then the hot leche filling the rest of the cup. Just getting to know this Angus character. Did I mention I Love this book? I've gone from devouring it to savoring it. It is my reward when I am done with my work, still time and reading latest lessons. Gots to get back to it. Love LaReen
(3) I'm three guarters through "The Zooid Mission". First half I devoured it. Second half, I am savoring it. I don't want the adventure to end! Love L.
Also from Florida,
Your book is really amazing. Are you that wise? What profundity! I have
already caught myself quoting from it on occasion. Thank you sooo much. I am
waiting for the sequel.
Gerdean. Get the sequel started, please! I want to know where the Jural Colony Project is going, what kind of challenges they face and how they resolve the situations that occur. How the classes on death and dying are presented; how Dr. Blackstone’s book does on the market and how he is faring on the Mansion world and in the universities of the constellation sector. How the Zooids deal with regression and progress; what changes are needed with new technological developments. Loving Circles, Sybil
