Novels

ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

Some of you are aware that one of my novels, Unspoken, was contracted to a tiny, up and coming publishing house. After some time of not hearing from them, I pushed and was finally told that they were dissolving. During this time I wrote three more novels, one of which was the sequel to Unspoken. But that didn’t help the sense of loss.

Realizing that everything happens for a reason (my motto), I took a second and third look at my query and sent it off to a few agents and publishing houses. I happened upon Parliament House and sent my query and first three chapters and much to my surprise, they asked for the full manuscript! Now, I hadn’t opened up the document in two years mind you so who knows what had been overlooked.  Nails bitten and house neglected, I swept through it one last time and sent it away.

I waited a few weeks. I wasn’t genuinely hopeful because of my failures in the past, but I tried to keep positive. Lots of writers go through dozens and even hundreds of rejections before they find the right home for their work. I know what I love, and that is writing. So I couldn’t be sad. I couldn’t be down on myself and stop writing. I could not give up.

And then my Gmail app chimed, and there was an email from Parliament House, and THEY WANTED MY NOVEL!

Amber and Dusk-Review


I seem to have a pull toward subpar fantasy which is a talent of mine. Needless to say, this one had me up and down in my rating so I’ll leave it at around 3.5.

Things I didn’t like:

The writing style. As pretty as the descriptions were, the world building seemed to go overboard. Is hat possible? Anyhow, the words “ambric” and “kembric” appeared 3,568 tines and I found myself making a game out of it. A game in which only I benefited. Or not, depending how you look at it.

The way I was thrown into a debut novel feeling like I was reading a sequel. I questioned it before realizing Owlcrate doesn’t put sequels in their boxes. So, I plodded on. The beginning confused me. Once things picked up it was ok. Then it just started to feel like The Ambric Queen. That was a Red Queen joke. Whooooosh

The plot device death. I will say no more.

What I liked:

Sylvie was a redeeming factor. Her attitude and outlook was relatable. She didn’t do stupid crap for the sake of the plot. While her intentions were pretty clear I felt like I needed to know more of her but that didn’t affect my rating.

The magic or “legacies”. Even know some things weren’t fleshed out, I thought the powers were neat and a tad fresh.

Overall, I will probably read the sequel because of Sunder who is smoking hot. So there’s that. Plus, I bet the cover will be delicious.
