After our initial phone conversation, I was impressed by his insight and thoroughness as it pertains to editing language, process’ and procedures of the rules of grammar.

Editing, Book Cover Design and Writing Coach

“The Art of Writing can be a lonely, exhausting, and [sometimes] depressing process, especially if you’re attempting to write, much less publish, your first novel. In addition, there aren’t enough tools or resources available to aspiring writers of which may influence, encourage, and inspire them during an arduous work/writing-in-progress. Luckily for me, J. A. Huguley not only became my editor, but he took on the roles of writing coach, confidante, and advisor; as well as my graphic designer and business partner from the start to the finish of my first book - The Ragdoll and the Marine, A Memoir. Fortunately, John's attention to detail, professionalism, wealth of knowledge and keen business sense all makes for the Perfect Compliment for any writer who needs an invaluable resource that helps you get your book written and published!”

Amazon Book Review

"When I first looked at the book cover depicting a man in a sand hourglass, I thought the title “17 Years”, might mean someone is telling a story from jail, or is otherwise trapped in some way relating to time. I think in a way, it was.

The story is told in first person by Bobby, who we meet when he is waking up from a coma. Initially most of his feelings and questions are in his head and we walk with him through his mental journey of trying to figure things out, as he learns he’s been in a coma for 17 years. We later meet his Transition Expert and her job is to help him navigate learning and experiencing life and the world after 17 years. The two of them become close as she helps and encourages him along the way to wellness.

What kept me engaged in this short story is the vivid storytelling by the author. It was very easy for me to imagine Bobby, the Transition Expert, the hospital room, etc. The emotions Bobby experienced are also described in such detail that you forget he’s a fictional character - you think you know this guy.

I thought I knew how the story was probably going to end, but then there was a plot twist and I found myself thinking “wait…WHAT?” For me personally, that means I’ve just read a great story. I’m looking forward to the next piece by John Huguley.
