I always feel embarrassed posting promo stuff here. It doesn’t matter how many years I’ve been in this gig, and it doesn’t matter if I purposefully put together this blog/site in order to have a nice, comfy corner on the web where I can chill and also get all sparkly special snowflake on everyone whenever reviews and giveaways come up.
So, uh, sorry. But I’m all sparkly special snowflake right now – because two reviews.
Firstly, The Novel Approach Reviews just posted a review for The Weeping Willow:
This is a story of courage, not of overcoming fear but of recognizing the very human gifts one has been given—a life, a soul, friendship, compassion—and being brave enough to gather that into the desire to be more than the spell that’s been cast. It’s the story of an unlikely bond between a boy and a tree that has taken on the role of becoming warmth and shelter and refuge—all the things a home should be.
And Reviews by Jessewave posted one for Benedict a few days ago:
The writing of Benedict quite surprised me. It’s been a while since a story managed to challenge me. There is a lyrical quality to the style of writing as well as hidden meanings. It’s almost like reading a fairy-tale. It was quite a treat to read. At the same time, it may not be for everyone. If you like straightforward stories, then you might be quite put off by Benedict.
Sadly, Reviews by Jessewave will be shutting its doors early next year. But the site will remain open in order for readers and authors to be able to access old reviews and posts.
In other promo news – sorry! – I’ll be back at The Novel Approach later this month twice more to give The Glass Minstrel a signal boost (guest blog and giveaway time!) because it’s that time of the year for that novel, and I just plain want to give it another chance to be heard. And after that, I’ll be on again to do a guest blog and giveaway for Masks: Rise of Heroes.
It’ll be non-stop for me (and you) from this point on, considering how my release schedule will be. After December, I’ve got Icarus in Flight in January, then Arabesque in February, and after a quick breather in March, Banshee in April. And then come the new books like Wollstone in May and Grave’s End in June, and God knows what else after that. ^^;;;;
Y’all have been warned.
