I can’t even begin to tell you how surreal it is to read reviews of THE SHADOW READER. I still feel like this whole publishing thing is just a dream. It’s something that happens to other people, not to me. I’m just me, a girl with stories in her head. The stories don’t even belong to me. They belong to McKenzie. I just happen to be the one who writes them down (McKenzie is WAY too busy to write a novel!).

But, there are reviews out there. Good reviews, too! I get giddy whenever I hear someone actually read my book all the way through. To hear that they read it AND they liked it is just all sorts of awesome. One of my favorite reviews is up over at Fantasy & SciFi Lovin’ News & Reviews . Check it out if you have time.

    Not sure if my previous reply posted…
    Re: post on Fantasy & SciFi Lovin’ News & Reviews — that’s friggin’ awesome! I love how McKenzie is a well-rounded character who doesn’t fly into the arms of the first man with broad shoulders. Can’t wait to read it again!

    Have just started seeing your book reviews around and it sounds awesome. Was wondering if it was to be a series or is a stand alone? First place I saw your cover was on the Bitten By Books website. Are you planning to do an interview there?

      Oh, yeah. It’s October! I forgot my ad starts running this week. Glad it caught your attention. 🙂

      I don’t have an interview scheduled at BBB (yet!), but I have one up at My Bookish Ways (http://www.mybookishways.com/2011/08/interview-and-giveaway-sandy-williams-author-of-the-shadow-reader.html) and I have several more scheduled in the next month. I should probably make a page with interview links, huh?

      The Shadow Reader is the first book of a series. I’m working on the sequel right now, and I’m hoping I can sell a third book! We’ll see.

      Thanks for stopping by!
