Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Two New Reviews of My Novel, AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE Are Up…

Folks, Monday was not the world’s best day.

Why? Well, I have a nasty sinus infection. I wasn’t able to concentrate on my editing despite the two exciting projects on my hands right now — both fantasies, but wildly dissimilar.

So if I can’t work on these two books, I know it’s because I’m not feeling well. So I trotted off to the doctor, got some antibiotics, and went home to bed.

(Yeah. It was one of those sorts of days.)

Anyway, I got up after getting some solid rest and found this review by Betsy Lightfoot over at her blog of my novel, AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE. Here’s some of what she has to say:

(Bruno the Elfy) needs to find a way out of the mess he finds himself in, as well as rescuing his mentor, and a young human woman, trying not to get any further into trouble. Along the way, he learns that nearly everything he has learned about the human world, his own world, and even himself, is a lie.

The book is alternately exciting, scary, and funny, with mysteries to be solved, and great evils to be faced and overcome.

..All in all, a satisfying read, and I’m waiting for the second half of the story to come out.

In addition, I had a lovely review from author Chris Nuttall posted at Amazon on Sunday. A bit of his review says:

An Elfy on the Loose dances from one genre to another without pausing for breath and rockets towards a cliffhanger ending.

So there you have it . . . two new reviews of AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE, and both are positive. I’ve gone from having one review to three reviews in a couple of short days. This is progress.

And I’m quite pleased, because you never know just what people think of your work until they say something. (Yes, this despite the four wonderful authors who have stood in my corner for the past several years; you can view their comments at my “What People Are Saying” page.)

Now, as I toddle back off to nurse my nasty sinus infection, I can feel a little better. And I do appreciate that.

BTW, in case you missed my guest blog about why I used parallel universes in AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE, it’s up right now over at the inestimable Stephanie Osborn’s blog, Comet Tales.  Feel free to check it out.
