I was blown away yesterday by the kind review that Aloi at the Guiltless Reading blog posted yesterday about my novel, Persephone's Torch. I'll let the review speak for itself; you can read it in full here.
But the thing that really kind of ripped my head off of its shoulders and kicked it across the room was that she went several steps further, really leaps and bounds further, by listing the novel among her favorites... and just follow this link to see the amazingly amazing company that she put it in!
I staggered around the house in kind of a stupor for the rest of the day. Thanks, Aloi! -- the Smart Ass in me, the guy that I wear as a shield when words fail, would say "Well, she obviously has excellent taste" -- but the little kid in me who still believes that I can't do anything right is still trying to figure out what the hell happened to the axis of the Earth yesterday...
I am honored and grateful.
