Praise for Adam J Nicolai
“Mr. Nicolai uses language beautifully. He paints very vivid images in very few words and he does so brilliantly.” – Tifainé N. Highly
“I … found myself marveling at how well-crafted many sentences are. I would find myself stopping and re-reading them, just so I could savor their beauty a little longer.” – Basil Owen
“[O]ften it is easy to see why any given writer had to self publish (and often seemingly without any editor). That is definitely not the case here. The writing was intense, compelling and intelligent.” – Beth C
