    Hi Dennis Calloway, I read your book and it’s such a great story. I was wondering if there will be a sequel? Thanks!

        Hi Dennis, I am so sorry that all this is happening. This is Robert Wingate, I did get to see your comment before my Facebook account got deactivated again and this time my email got hacked. I just want to let you know this because apparently there is someone named Betto Ossea that is trying to hack into our accounts. I know this is not the place to talk about that because this is your personal blog for the book. I really did enjoy that book and I don’t know if you got a chance to read the reviews on google books but I was the one that brought up the book being made into a movie. I don’t know if you can check with other people but just in case tell them if they get a message from Betto Ossea either on an email or on fb to delete it instantly. I will be back with some of the questions I had from the book, right now I’m just so pissed that I can even think clearly, but thanks for the comment on fb and looking forward to hearing from you and reading more of your stuff.

        Hey guys this is Alexis, I can’t believe what just happened. I was getting a whole bunch of pictures together and ready to open a new FB but then I saw Robert’s comment on Google books and I said that I better wait because I don’t wanna go through this whole process of uploading the million pictures I had on Facebook plus all the friends I had there. I don’t even wanna think about it because it makes me so angry. Last night I couldn’t sleep thinking of this person. How did he get access to our accounts? and why would Facebook deactivate our accounts without even giving us an option to proof that we are the real people? Ok, I just wanted to get that off my chest and Robert and Bryan if you see this message if I were you I would wait at least a couple of days and see if this person (that’s not what I would like to say but since we’re on Mr. Calloway’s blog I wanna show respect) stops messing with us before opening a new account. By the way Freddie, thanks for the notification, you’re awesome and I’m glad your account didn’t get deactivated, but just be careful with stuff they send to your email or on fb because this guy apparently doesn’t wan to stop. 😉 Mr. Dennis, finally a blog so we can chat about the real good stuff which is of course, Return To Earth. I’m actually reading the book for the second time and I’m taking my time to dig deeper and understand things that I didn’t get the first time however I do want to know what happened to Soren’s crew at the end because it seemed to me that most of them were eaten to death but that’s not very clear in the story but I sensed that’s what happened because it does say that Nola had bite marks on her breasts. I’m curious to know if that’s what really happened. That book is so intriguing I love every single moment of it. About the sequel you don’t have to answer that because before my account got deactivated yesterday Bryan told me that you said there will be one and no aliens which is even better. This is so cool. ok, looking forward to your reply. Thanks 😉

    Hi Robert. Wow…sorry to hear about all the trouble you’re having with FB! Alexis mentioned this in her post, but I also find it hard to believe that Facebook would delete someone’s account without giving them a warning first. And it happened to you twice! Maybe it’s a virus? In any case, I’ll keep my eyes open. I went back and reviewed the REVIEWS on Google (now that I know who’s who and who said what!) and I saw your comments. When I first started writing the story, I considered briefly who my lead character might be, but I didn’t think too much on it. The deeper I got into it though, the more I realized that it had some pretty exciting stuff in it. When you first mentioned that it should be made into a movie and everyone chimed in on that, I began to think that a movie could be a real possibility. I imagine that if and when the book starts making significant traction, then the possibility of it being turned into a movie will become more and more a reality. The discussion on the lead characters was great though. One thing I’ll share with you is that I first got the idea to write this story 10 years ago! At that time, I considered Halle Berry for the role of Tess, but I think Bryan picked up on the fact that Tess is in her early to mid-thirties and because of my delays and periodic writer’s block, I forced Halle out of the role . One of my leading contenders though, was Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Mandela). I was impressed with her tough-girl role in 28 Days Later. Hmmm…maybe I should send Zoe and Naomie copies of the book??

    Hi Alexis. Thanks for writing and so sorry what happened to your FB account! It’s a very difficult and tedious thing to have to rebuild connections and history. I want to believe that those accounts still exist somewhere and you only need to be given access to it again, but I don’t know. Has anyone tried to contact FB about it? Whatever you do, good luck and I hope it doesn’t happen again. I think that’s awesome that you’re re-reading the book! After I typed in “The End” for the first time (and what a glorious feeling THAT was!), I ended up reading the entire story 5 more times before it went back to the publisher for final formatting! Odd as it seems though, I actually enjoyed going through it each time, because it gave me an opportunity to clarify certain parts or remove certain explanations; but it was certainly a good feeling to submit it for final formatting that’s for sure! Your questions are tough for me though Alexis, because I have to be careful to: 1) not spoil any surprises for future readers and 2) not give any spoilers for the sequel. I can’t go into detail on what happened to Soren’s crew, but I can tell you that Nola was NOT turned into canapé – Rey was too possessive to let that happen . And by the way, you hit the nail on the head with Amy Adams playing Nola…that was my first choice. And what are your thoughts on Jim Caviezel for Rey??

    Hi guys, I’m so glad to see you here. This is Bryan. Robert I can’t believe you fb got deactivated again. After I opened mine fb sent me a message saying that someone flagged it as being fake again but then I was able to prove that I was the real person and they asked me to change my password and I haven’t had any problems since I reopened it. I hope you guys get that fixed. Please look me up when you open one, you too Robert. And that was awesome that Mr. Calloway took the time to write about what had happened to all of us. So Mr. Calloway you got my deep respects, I know you’re not some stuck up a-hole that thinks he’s better than anyone just because he wrote a book. I hope this book goes to be a top seller. I really mean that. Hey Alexis that’s awesome that you are reading the book for the second time. last night I finished reading it for the 3rd time and the more you read it the more you understand things and the better the story gets. I’m glad Nola didn’t get eaten or like Mr. Calloway said she wasn’t turned into canapé, however i still feel that the book doesn’t say much about Soren’s crew. It’s obvious that they died but what exactly happened, would be my curiosity and Mr. Calloway, don’t be afraid to answer our questions because I’m pretty sure 95% of the people that will come to your blog have already read the book. lol Thanks for your answers Mr. Calloway you are much appreciated.

      I started reading this book at 11am this morning and I couldn’t put the book aside and 6 hours later I was done with the book. There was never a dull moment on this book. This is Dennis Calloway’s first book and I;m pretty sure will be reading a lot more from this author. Since the beginning of the story the suspense is nerve wracking. This is an action packed sci-fi thriller and I recommend it to anyone. I loved how as you keep reading you everything gets connected to things that had already happened making the story flow even better and the best thing about it is that it leaves you wanting more. I would like to say to Dennis Calloway that he’s got a new fan and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    Hi Dennis, this is Alexis. Sorry for not being able to reply before but I’ve been busy with some personal stuff but I really appreciate you taking your time to answer all my questions and I understand when you can’t go into any details regarding some parts of the book because it’ll be in the sequel which I can’t even begin to say how desperately I am to read it. I read the book twice and the second time I got to understand a lot more better certain parts of the story that at first I could grasp. I got a group of people together the other day and we were discussing your book and it was very interesting to see so many points of view regarding the story but I can assure you they were all good reviews however we all agreed that there’s got to be a sequel in order for the story to flow because it leaves you wondering what really happened on the Cassiopeia. Something really bad happened to Soren’s crew and even to himself but the story leaves you kinda hanging. Please do not take this a criticism because that’s not my intention in the list, this is just what we as a group came up with after we all finished the story and had this conversation.Like for instance, what happened to Rey that he turned crazy and scary and why did he sewed hair on his skin? Why were there people naked hanging from the ceiling and also human parts spread all over the ship? Where’s the rest of the crew? Why was Soren tied to that chair with no hand and no legs? Did Rey cause all this but then why? one of the things we had a good conversation on was that although it says Nola was here on the wall on top of the mutilated body we believe that can’t really be Nola because she was mentioned in the beginning a lot as if she was in important part of the story but then you find this dead mutilated woman in the end but doesn’t really clarify that it’s really her and last but not least, at the very end when they arrive to the planet, is it really Europa? because in the book explains that Europa was an iced planet however when they arrive they see grass and it makes you wonder is it really Europa? or maybe it was something they never expected and actually Europa is a place just like earth that can hold life. I’m intrigued by this book in a way you cannot imagine cause it’s such a good story. I hope I’m not bugging you with my comments and questions. Thank you once again for taking the time to reply.

      Hi Alexis,

      Thanks for posting again and you’re very welcome! The way I feel is that since you’ve taken the time to read (and re-read) my book and then discuss it in a group (which I think is very cool!), then the least I can do is respond to your questions and try my best to answer, without spilling too many beans.  And I don’t see any criticisms in anything that you guys have stated; you have valid points that should be addressed: now or later.

      As you guys have accurately pointed out, Rey has gone crazy. I was purposely vague about Rey’s background, because I knew that he would be the one to cause the most problems. His background is a mixture of races (Spanish, White, Native American), and at some point during his life, he became introduced to “scalping”. Maybe he read about it in an old book he found at a grandparent’s house or maybe just from a high school history class. At this point in time, the “place” he learned about it is not that important; only the “impression” it made on him as he learned the reputed significance behind it (scalps were said to symbolize power or life-power). Rey is a very insecure man to begin with and when things started going bad, this little bit of knowledge resulted in him doing some ghastly things. Each scalp was a victory for him, which he kept close to his body (literally!), as a trophy. Unfortunately, I can’t detail his descent into madness just yet…you’ll have to be patient for that. 😉

      SOREN: You might remember from the book that Soren and Rey’s relationship was not the smoothest one. And you might also remember that Rey likes Nola. I actually say that he’s “infatuated” with her, but Soren knows that Rey wants her. When Soren was with Nola, he knew that Rey was in an outer room and could hear their “noises” and still rubbed it in Rey’s face by stating, “you just missed Nola”. In addition to being insecure, Rey is also highly suspicious and makes a mental note to “keep his eye on him [Soren] and be ready to act if things got too far out of hand.” (pg. 101, paperback). Why he was tied to the seat with no arms and legs…will be revealed later, but I can say that with him in this situation, he was easier to control.

      NOLA: “Your insights serve you well, young Jedi.” Oops…sorry…wrong story! Okay…all joking aside: you guys bring up some great points here. Is it Nola? You’re right…there’s no certainty. Since the sequel is not a done thing yet, there’s much that could happen here (I’ll have to interview Nola Sykes and if she can argue her case on keeping her in the story, then I’ll have to look at that possibility!). I know…that’s not much help, but I can’t spell out ALL of part two, right?

      EUROPA: Sorry…ditto. 🙂 BUT, I will say that a couple of times in the book, I made references to the fact that there was a lot of information on Europa and Jupiter that was either unknown or not fully disclosed to our heroes, before they left the moon. Again, you guys have great insights here. As for the “rest of the crew”…let’s just say that I’ll give you a good headcount in part two. Regarding the body parts, think of it as a messy room: things get left out on the bed, on the chair, on the floor, etc. In the situation on the ship, things got out of hand and in the ensuing bloody commotion, combined with the loss of gravity, whatever was not tied down went bouncing and floating all over the place. There was one question I didn’t quite get: “Why were there people naked hanging from the ceiling?” You’ll have to refresh my memory of that particular scene.

      Again, great, insightful questions! I wish I could share more, but I have to leave SOME surprises for you guys in the next book. Also, I really appreciate you and your friends discussing the book and I would like to send you guys some newly printed bookmarks for yourselves and to pass out to friends. I’ll need a physical mailing address in order to do that. If you are comfortable with that, please send me your mailing address to: dennis121121@gmail.com. The same goes for you Robert W., Bryan M., and Freddie R. Obviously, I can’t do this with everyone, but you guys have been early supporters of Return To Earth and I appreciate that.

      Well, that’s it for now. Sorry to cut this short, but it’s almost time for The Walking Dead! 🙂
      Peace!
      Dennis

    Hi Alexis, My name is Freddie. I read your comment and I have exactly the same questions about what exactly happened on the Cassiopeia. The book is so intriguing that when it gets to that part it leaves you wanting more. Who knows maybe the author doesn’t want to answer any of these questions cause they will be answered in the sequel and if he does I know for certain that Return to Earth will get to a whole new level because everything will be more connected and we’ll be able to understand the story more fully and I agree with you regarding Nola. For some reason I don’t think Nola is the dead woman with the bite marks that Stan finds on the ship and I’m also curious about why Rey had hair sewn onto his body and about Europa it left me also thinking if they really arrived on Europa or if it was another planet or maybe that when they got there they found another planet just like Earth. Sorry Dennis Calloway, no pressure whatsoever but when’s that sequel coming up? LOL

      Wow Dennis, you have no idea how much this means. I wasn’t expecting that kind of reply whatsoever. I am so pleased with all the answers you have given me. I truly appreciate that. When you mentioned that part about the bodies hanging on the ship I went back an read it and I guess it was that I got a little confused. I thought that when Stan opened the door on the ship and saw the 2 bodies they were hanging from the ceiling but it was that they got pulled out of the ship by the gravity. Sorry for that. lol well and as a matter of fact I do love that idea of the signed copy and yes I will send you my address. Thank you so much for that and I am looking forward to read that sequel. Thanks Dennis! have a great Monday!

I just wanted to share that. Maybe we can all help Dennis Calloway get good reviews there and that way we give him our support. This was just a thought I wanted to share. Thanks!

      Hey guys, sorry for not keeping in touch lately but I’ve been busy and I just got a break today. I’ve been reading the comments but just couldn’t reply earlier. Basically you guys have asked the same questions I had and Mr. Calloway has answered all them and I’m pleased with his response. It’s true we can’t bug the man with all out questions because we all know there has to be a sequel and I’m positive all these questions plus many more will be answered in the sequel. Alexis why would he send you a signed copy? If you are referring to his reply to your comment, he’s asking for your mailing address to send you a bookmark not a signed copy. Unless he’s told you before about a signed copy and I didn’t see that, but if you’re getting a signed copy I would like one too. lol I’m just joking Mr. Calloway, the bookmark will be fine for me. Now watch Bryan going all crazy when he sees this comment and now he’ll want a signed bookmark and a signed book. lol I’m just amazed he hasn’t responded to any of these comments. He’s probably busy with school because that’s what he told me on facebook about 2 days ago. Once again Dennis, thanks for taking the time to respond, most author don’t give a crap about writing to their fans and you have taken the time to do it and that says many good things about your persona. Well people keep the chat going and make it interesting and sorry again for the late reply. Hey Alexis hurry up and open that fb account. To Freddie, yes I went on GoodReads and saw what that guy posted about the book. I will leave a nice review. If I don’t do it today I will do it tomorrow. Thanks for the info.
