Finding out you have a review is an author’s roller coaster — Wonderful to get the attention for your story, but *bites fingernails* what will it say? On Call: Crossroads has picked up two reviews recently, and fortunately for my manicure, both are good.
Literary Nymphs, in the person of Rose Nymph, had this to say, in part:
Tough subjects are dealt with sensitively and the sweet, honest couple of men at the core of the story trying to make sense of their relationship and the world provided a satisfying read.
The rest is here, with a 4 Nymph rating. *big grin*
Cryselle’s Craziness, a new and relatively unknown site, also has a review for Crossroads.
This story stands alone just fine, even if it does have two others in the series. Keith’s and Dante’s work and private lives mix in such a way that I would hope doesn’t happen all the time, but does make a good story. They tend to the bittersweet, someone’s always getting hurt, and this time, killed, which sends Keith just a bit over the edge, and Dante has to reel him back with a reality check.
The rest is here, with a 4 1/2 Marble review. *also big grin*
Crys had a complicated time reviewing this story because she and I have a RL relationship, but her other reviews should get some notice, because she has thoughtful things to say. She just did a review of Lee Benoit’s Smoke:Askari that I hope the author sees, because it would blow me away to have anybody think that deeply about my work.
