There is always a slightly tense period of calm after you release a book into the wild. I'm just coming out of one as I start to meet people or hear their reaction to the book. I've spoken with many people now at readings and bookshop events, sci-fi conventions and once just walking along the street. So far it's been wonderful, people seem to really like the ideas behind the strory as well as the books themselves.
So, to share the joy I am currenty experiencing here's a small selection of tweets I've received recently.
I must admit though @bobbyllew News From The Squares was shorter than I imagined or perhaps I just couldn't put the bloody thing down?
Just finished reading "News from the Squares" by @bobbyllew - even better than "News from Gardenia". Roll on book 3!
@bobbyllew I loved the fact that you created a sense of tension but didn't resort to "blowing stuff up". A right riveting read.

Just finished reading News from the squares by @bobbyllew Awsome book can’t wait for the next in the trilog.
Enjoyed News From The Squares, another winner from @bobbyllew
@bobbyllew reading News from the Squares. V. Good. Style is somehow reminiscent of Jules Verne, a wonder for the technology.
Just finished @bobbyllew 's News from Gardenia, quick read, nice to read some non-apocalyptic SciFi for a change.
Enjoying News from the Squares by @bobbyllew Love 'Utterly to live for' for something baked. Let's all start using it NOW!
@bobbyllew just finished #NewsfromtheSquares. Brilliant. My only criticism is you can’t write books as fast as I can read them. #3ql
@bobbyllew Just finished NFTS. Loved it, really felt inside Gavin's head and a gripping ending to boot. Cheers, I eagerly await part 3!
@bobbyllew Just finished 'News from the Squares'. Really enjoyable & very thought provoking. When can I sign up for book 3?
@bobbyllew just finished Squares, fabulous read! Such a clever plot, sounds mad at first, but the more you think about it... Thanks Robert!
@bobbyllew Robert - Just finished "News from the Squares" great story, thought provoking. Found my name at the back as well which was nice!
@bobbyllew really enjoyed 'squares' - more disturbing than 'gardenia' but very thought provoking. Any idea when the audiobook is coming out
@bobbyllew News from the squares has really altered my view of life. Loved their views on Religion, that's how I've always seen it.
@bobbyllew BTW whilst looking forward to #3, I am very much enjoying News From The Squares. Great writing and thought provoking concepts.
@bobbyllew just finished News From The Squares. Most enjoyable & great future material references. Looking forward to The Clouds.
