In the spotlight

over at Romance Divas there is a monthly “Spotlight on” section, and this month, the spotlight is on yours truly.

I answered these questions on holidays so they may be a bit… you know… distracted. The holidays itself was wonderful. I’m sure I’ll have a rake of pictures up soon to bore you for everyone to look at.

And in writing news, I got the Fine Line Edits back for The Wolf’s Mate this morning. Almost there!

Interview at Jeannie Lin’s website.

As a prelude (her words, not mine) to the release of The Scroll Thief on the 24th (this. day. week!) my good friend Jeannie Lin (who writes some of the most exciting historical asian adventure romance I’ve ever read) interviewed me for her blog.

Lots of worldbuilding stuff here. And some of my photos!

So here goes. Leave lots of comments so I look like I have friends, ‘k?

Reviews and views…

I had a lovely comment waiting for me this morning (it’s under my first ever post here):

A review for The Wolf’s Sister is now online at PNR Reviews:


Take care,
Dee Gentle
PNR Reviews & Features Editor

and its a nice review too… “a wonderful start to the series”

Also up to day is the almost infamous “ghost post” at Texty Ladies. I mentioned in my interview with Jane about various ghost sightings and she asked for more information. She opened the call last week to Texty Ladies readers and the result is up today. It makes for some interesting and spooky reading!

A few more edits for The Scroll Thief are underway, and I’ve seen the design for the cover. It’s gorgeous… no.. it’s GORGEOUS! 🙂

The Wolf’s Sister – article, interview and 1st review!

It’s never ending.

The Wolfs Sister: a Tale of the Holtlands

I did some interviews and promo a while ago so with only a week left, its all arriving at once. Don’t worry. I’ll pipe down again soon.*

Raine Delight posted an article I wrote on Fantasy cunningly entitled “Why Fantasy?” and another interview which also includes a different except of “The Wolf’s Sister”. Warning for those at work – there are some scantily clad ladies in the site header. Actually, that might be an enticement for some of you.

I also got a stonking review from the wonderful Ciar Cullen – I’m so thrilled about this one.

Long is a master at characterization. Deep characterization, in a short book. Madness, longing, love, desperation, motivation, hurt, betrayal–it’s all there for each primary character. Even Anala, my favorite character (a wolf). Sniff. Because the characters are so real, the relationships are believable. Somehow Long creates connections between her characters seemingly out of thin air. And then you connect–Shan is so loveable in a manly way that it’s heartbreaking when he gets into mortal danger.

I love her description–just enough to give you the sense of the cold fantasy world without boring you. I also loved the tone of this book–serious, a bit morose, deep, desperate. In contrast, the romance is uplifting and brings light to the story.

So I got a 4.5 out of 5 and I’m delighted. 🙂

*then again, maybe not…
