Welcome to the Time Crystal reader survey

I have spent many years researching and writing Time Crystal, trying to create the most amazing story I can. Now I want to know how successful you think I have been, and how you think I could make it even more amazing!

Please spend a little time telling me what you think. I take all reader feedback seriously and in the past it has helped me to shape this story. As a small reward, you will have the option of being included in the acknowledgements.

Thank you. I really appreciate the time you are giving me.
