My first review!

I'm gonna be honest. When I saw that Suzie, of Confessions of a Wandering Heart, was reading The Better Part of Darkness, I felt sick -- like stomach turning into a tight little ball sick. I've been trying to prepare myself for reviews. I know this book is not going to be everyone's cup of tea. But, ya know, at the same time, I want readers to like it, to get what I was trying to do with this story and my characters.

She got it. She got my characters. She got the world and the story I was trying to tell, and, wow, she did a really wonderful, very detailed write-up. So, if you want to get a sense or feel for the book, here's the link.

Off to conference tomorrow, so blog posts might be a little thin this week.

I just read it--it's a fabulous review!! Congrats!!

I love that she threw Vicki's name in there as "if you like Vicki Pettersson's series, you'll like this". :)

Awesome review Kelly, and I so can't wait to read this book.

and I love both Vicki's and Kim's series - so now I'm even more excited.

Read the review. TOTALLY AWSOME!!! Very exciting, and terrifying, to have someone like that reading your stuff. I'm flip-flopping now because a friend of my mother's is reading through mine. I just want her to 'get it' and like it.
Now I just want an ARC that much more!
