UnSpoken: A Val and Irulan Short, gets a blazing review!!
Hey everyone. UnSpoken: A Val and Irulan Short, has gotten it’s first review, from the wonderful Ms. Sally Sapphire. Ms. Sapphire is the woman behind the Bibrary Bookslut blog; a blog that focuses on LGBT themed literature. She was also the first person to review Never Again: An Irulan Short. Well, once again she has given my little short an amazing review. On top of that, in the two days that it's been listed as a free download, there have been over 200 downloads! I feel like Sally Fields the night that she accepted her Oscar for Places In The Heart; I‘m sitting at my laptop thinking, You like me, you really like me.
Here is a small bit of what she had to say about UnSpoken…this is a more intimate tale than the first, focused more on exploring the relationship between Val and Irulan. Ronnie has to walk a fine line between satisfying the reader’s hunger for the full-length Crimson Dawn, and potentially alienating readers who come to the novel without having read the shorts. I think she’s done an admirable job of it, introducing us to the characters, and providing just enough background to whet our hunger, without duplicating the experience of the novel itself. Val and Irulan are fantastic characters, and it’s clear that they (and the world in which they’ve been established) are well equipped to carry an exciting new addition to the urban fantasy genre.
