A New Review from The Mountain Express
7 years ago
Another series that I have loved is the one from Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli, The first is Dead Dancing Women which revolves around older women who have been seen dancing around a fire (gasp! ;-)) and such and are now being killed. If you haven't read it, do - I think you would like it. The other two books are Dead Floating Lovers and Dead Sleeping Shaman. There is another planned for fall but Elizabeth didn't give me the title. Last, but definitely not least, is The Crossing Places and The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths. Both have to do with archaeology in the marshes of Norfolk, UK. The first one starts out a little slowly but, if you persevere, you'll find a great book.
Pat in TN has this to share:
"Vicki Lane is one of the best American novelists writing today. In The Day of Small Things, she has once again rendered a lyrical, evocative, and haunting portrait of life in the Appalachians, both past and present. And in Birdie, she has given us a character who will steal your heart and stay with you for a long time to come. I loved this book--The Day of Small Things will definitely make my short list for 2010."
Oh my! Oh Deb! I feel faint!
Blurbs, as you probably know, go on the cover of the book to entice the reader. I've been fortunate in getting nice blurbs from kind authors hut it's still difficult to ask. In Deb's case, however, she had let me know that she'd read and enjoyed my previous books so it was easy.
With Deb's kind words to energize me, I've begun to think about the promotion of the book. Yes, the publishers assign me a publicist but they expect me to do a fair amount on my own. This newsletter is one of those things. And now I've set up a blog/site dedicated toThe Day of Small Things.
