Yesterday I caught you up on all my guest bloggery, and today I am posting reviews, all quite glowy and gratifying.
NPR – “What Happens when Fantasyland Doesn’t Want You?”
I was especially pleased that Paul Weimer of SF SIGNAL liked the book, because he’s been such a marvellously vocal fan:
… Sophie makes a believable and interesting protagonist. Given that she quickly learns her own foundling origins are on this world, her motivations and desire to learn more about Stormwrack rather than turn tail and forget her experience are completely believable and easy to identify with. Would I, in her place, start maxing out credit cards to obtain cameras and other equipment to document this world next door? Absolutely! Her stubbornness, her intelligence and her effusive appeal are palpable.
and Bookworm Blues says some great things, too!
And, as before, Kitten Pic!
Thanks for the review shout-out 🙂
I’m a fan of what you do, Paul–your enthusiasm is a source of joy.
The reviews have been remarkably favorable. Were they as good for the INDIGO books?
Indigo Springs was (as I perhaps incorrectly remember) all good reviews, all the time. But it was also much less widely reviewed. It may be that the bigtime gayness in it made it a bit more of a niche book, but I think the real difference was the explosion of even more book blogging since 2009.
