The first review is on The United Federation of Charles, which gave it an 8.5/10. Since they gave Damoren an 8/10, I take that as a very good sign.
He says, “Hounancier is a very different book from Damoren but not a bad one. Those looking for a continuation of Matt Hollis demon-slaying adventures will have to wait for future installments of the book. Those interested in a Voodoo-practicing demon-hunting stalking werewolves and succubi in New Orleans, however, are in for a treat.”
In other news, Fictiongarden.com reviewed Dämoren, and made it to their Recommended Reading List.
They said, “Damoren is an exciting first venture from a talented new voice, and I will definitely be picking up the sequel. You should too.”
Also, I just got back from All-Con where I gave my very first Author Presentation. It was called, “The Things No One Tells You About Querying a Novel,” and it went outstandingly well. It was a bit surreal to actually be the one presenting at one of these events. The piece was a more in depth look at the topics I discussed in my “5 Lessons I Learned When Querying a Novel” post. Now that I’ve done it, I plan to hone it down and share it at further conventions.
In the meantime, I look forward to seeing how everyone responds to Hounacier and to Mountain of Daggers. I’ll be posting up some guest blogs and author appearances soon.
Thank you, everyone, for all your support.
