I’m delighted to say that there’s another very positive review of Penelope Friday’s THRACE, again by the influential blogger Elisa Rolle who has done us all proud lately. Thank you, Elisa, and well done again Penni!
We’re very glad to report another very strong review this week, this time from Three Dollar Bill Reviews for Penelope Friday’s excellent THRACE which we feel has so far unfortunately not received the attention it so obviously deserves.
I wonder whether author R.J. Scott is the only person actually reading and reviewing anything at the moment? At any rate, there is a deservedly very positive review of Penni’s THRACE at this location.
ETA: Unfortunately there is a problem with the website at the moment which is making it impossible for me to update it to reflect this review. I will do so as soon as humanly possible.
I’m delighted to report the first substantive review for Penelope Friday’s THRACE, which was posted yesterday by Bibrary Bookslut. Among the comments included was this perceptive line: “Definitely an interesting read, even if it doesn’t make us feel too good about ourselves as a race.” Since that’s precisely how we ourselves feel about Penni’s work (although we’d go for ‘fascinating’ rather than merely ‘interesting’) we’re going to take this as a positive sign that it’s reaching its target audience and they are definitely showing their appreciation. Congratulations, Penni!
No sales to report on this week, alas, so response time is back to either zero or infinity. However I can now tell you that we hold a signed contract on Penelope Friday’s intriguing anthology Thrace which will be before you in November. I’m not sure whether it quite falls into the category of science fiction, although it takes place on a different planet and features unfamiliar species and technologies; nevertheless the emotions will be understood by all – love, loss, fear and hope combine in three outstanding short stories.
In addition we have the first part of a trilogy by Chris Quinton – a murder mystery set in Barcelona some thirty years from now. It isn’t just the suspect that’s unusual – the cop pursuing him has some rather unique abilities, too.
And then there are two titles by established author Julie Bozza, both of which will take your imagination off in very different directions. However we’ll resist the temptation to give too much away at this stage; full details will be available by this time next week.
Meanwhile we are busying ourselves preparing for the website update and the launch of all four new titles; I’m sure I saw smoke pouring out of our proof-reader’s ears!
Stick around – this is all going to get very interesting again soon!
Penelope Friday has done us proud! This is our first real burst of publicity; let’s see how it goes!
