RT been berry berry good to me

The December issue of Romantic Times (on newsstands through the end of next week) has featured me as one of seven "rising stars" of fiction.

In an article entitled "Hot Commodities," reviewer Gail Pruszkowski (my new Favorite Person in the World) says,
Eyes of Crow, the first of her new trilogy, was an entertaining epic fantasy with unforgettable characters. She's a phenomenal writer with a great voice. I can't wait till the next book comes out.

In the November issue of RT, Eyes of Crow received 4.5 stars (out of 4.5--why they no longer give 5-star reviews is a long story) and a "Top Pick" designation, the only one in its category for that month. The full review is now available on their site.

Yeah, I said a long time ago I wouldn't turn this blog into a bragfest, but EOC hasn't gotten many reviews yet, and this is a biggie. In my world, at least.

I loved Eyes Of Crow too and so did my mom. If I were a professional reviewer I'd give it 11 stars out of 10! And no people, she didn't pay me either.:-)

"Eyes of Crow, the first of her new trilogy, was an entertaining epic fantasy with unforgettable characters. She's a phenomenal writer with a great voice. I can't wait till the next book comes out."

That's so weird. I was just thinking that. Eerie.

Congratulations on the great review, Jer.

The book deserves it. I just (re-)read it and I'm not the least bit surprised that it's getting great reviews!
