My son leaves for Outremer.
And so the vigil begins again.
Again, far away places are included in the geography of family mind.
Crawling back to the computer today I found that three more lovely ladies have reviewed Dark and Disorderly.
Carla at www.romfanreviews.com/2010/08/review-dark-and-disorderly-by-bernita.html gave D&D a 4 out of 5 review. This review is due to the good offices of my dearest Ric who recommended D&D to her.
Anna at http://www.annathepiper.org/ also gave D&D 4 out of 5 stars.
And Marissa at http://sizzlinghotbooks.blogspot.com/ gave D&D five stars.
I appreciate these wonderful reviews so much, not only because they justify the chance Carina Press took with D&D but also because their consistency emphasizes the strengths of the book and reassure me about what I'm doing right with Lillie's adventures.
Don't You Just Hate It? Dep't:
When a real live person has a name you'd like to use in a novel.
There's a lovely television journalist on CNN by the name of Solidad O'Brien...a perfect name for a heroine. I love it. It's mysterious and beautiful, just like Raine Weaver in her Secret Garden--but it's already taken...
Wary of another relapse, but some improvement.
