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.
