Although they’re really still thin on the ground, I’ve had a few Faerie Blood reviews show up in the wild lately–hopefully, thanks to the little drawing contest!
calls it an excellent mix of the supernatural and the geeky.
Fellow Drollerie author Elisa Diehl (who y’all may remember was a guest blogger here for the last round of the Blog Tour) sees herself in its pages, which is really rather nifty to hear. *^_^*;;
And over on Faerie Blood‘s Goodreads page, fellow Drollerie author Heather Parker dropped a short but lovely review, and Rae L, who’s on the same Paranormal Mystery list I’m on, has good things to say too.
Thanks to you all for your reading time and your support!
spotted this nice mention of Faerie Blood in connection with YA novels the reviewer was reading. Somebody in the comments thought it sounded neat too. Yay!
To anybody who happens to wander by as a result of that post, first, hello! Second, for the record, Faerie Blood is not actually YA, although arguably it’s YA-friendly. Kendis at age 28 is too old to really qualify as a YA heroine, though.
Also, Christopher is only half-Scottish! This doesn’t actually come up in the story, but for giggles and grins and the reference of any of y’all reading this, Christopher’s father, Malcolm MacSimidh, actually is from Scotland. He moved to St. John’s, Newfoundland, at some point in his younger days and married Christopher’s mother, a Newfoundlander. Christopher however considers himself a Newfoundlander, even if he has a very Scottish name, since he was born and raised in St. John’s. It’s his mother’s blood that gives him his magic, not to mention his music.
It’s been about a month now since Faerie Blood showed up on Fictionwise, and I’m pleased to observe that I’m still in the top 20 on the Fantasy list there. I’ve peaked at #2 and am as of tonight at least back down to #18, which is where I started when I first paid attention to this. I am up to 12 ratings on the site, most of which appear to be “Great”, and I’m apparently now also the best-selling Drollerie book in their database. 14 people total have added me on Goodreads, too, and I had a new and very nice review show up on Amazon.
All of which is pleasing! It’s all small potatoes, sure. But they’re my potatoes. And they’re tasty!
No sign of me yet on Barnes and Noble, although I do note that the other ebook called Faerie Blood that I’d previously sighted in Fictionwise’s database is over there now. Hopefully I won’t be too far behind!
The Eludium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator is–
No wait, wrong cartoon. This “At last!” is to report that Faerie Blood is finally, finally, available on Amazon! So those of you who have been waiting for it to show up in the Kindle store, now’s your chance to pick it up.
Meanwhile I am holding steady at #13 on Fictionwise’s list of best sellers in Fantasy, and I’ve picked up some ratings there as well.
And! I have my very first review by somebody who didn’t know me beforehand. Which makes my heart glow, especially the part where she liked that Kendis does not give a flying damn about expensive clothes.
Man, this keeps up, I might start feeling like, y’know, a writer.
