Analog Review

Ahem. That title is me being professional. The truth is that I am flailing around like a 14-year-old (I have a 14-year-old; trust me on this flailing analogy), squeeing, grinning and staring into space, and generally going, ANALOG! EEEE!

I will now try to be professional again.

Queen of Roses has been reviewed at Analog. The link is http://www.analogsf.com/2014_09/reflib.shtml, and Sarafina is in rather good company, among books by M.C.A. Hogarth, C. S. Friedman, and Deborah J. Ross (who has been continuing the Darkover books), and others.

Now I'm going to go off and be unprofessional and eat ice cream in celebration. *big grin*

Reviews! And Nominations!

I have a review for Herb-Witch from Dear Author! I got a C. The review is, I think, quite a fair one. I have some things to try to remember for future books. (And, as I said in my more personal blog: be polite and don't fansplain, because the important part is for people to know if a book might be their cup of tea, or if they should avoid it. Whatever the grade/ranking/stars of a review, if it's detailed and fair, it gives people a chance to decide if they might like it.)


And Herb-Witch has also picked up a nomination in Best Fantasy/Urban Fantasy, on the eFestival of Words Virtual Book Fair forum, apparently run by Bards and Sages Publishing. It's a small nomination, but hey, it's pretty cool to have one! (Out of nowhere, too; I don't know who nominated me.)

Part of the nomination invited the authors to say things about themselves and their work. Here's the ten random facts I came up with off the top of my head.
