All about the dragon.

I've been sitting on reviews because. Well. I'm burning out on promotion. It's early in the career to say that, but it's true. I'm sure I'll get it back, but for now, working up the energy to say 'here are more exciting and new reasons to buy my book' isn't all that fun. Perhaps when I'm done writing more things and have a few more releases, I'll be more thrilled.

But the reviews.


Serena at Fallen Angel Reviews says:

"The Dragon Undone is a fantastic tale of understanding and love. Both Chaia and Berdhan are wounded people with obstacles to overcome. They continually find themselves in positions that force them to open their minds and ultimately their hearts. ...I can only hope that there is another book in the works that walks us through the trials with them." -- 5 Angels at Fallen Angel Reviews

And then there's Literary Sass. Literary Sass is a review site run on Blogspot. The reviewers there pride themselves on not giving fluff reviews. It's purely a submit your own stuff site, if you've got the courage to do it, because if they don't like your work, well. They say so. Two reviewers read and review each submission. So I submitted The Dragon Undone.

Their rating scale is a little "backward" in that they judge by how many "shots" (of alcohol) it took to get through the book.

I'm pleased to say that The Dragon Undone, in their opinion, meritted two single-shot reviews. I may have danced. You can find them over here.

I'm so proud of you Sara, you're rocking! And you know about that whole burn out with promo, me too! *Sigh* I think it just happens.

Oooh Sara. I know what you mean about being burnt out on promo. I am too, but it's my own fault. I've pulled back a little, trying to find the perfect balance between writing and promoting. Congrats on the reviews.
