Review round-up

From Brandywine Books.

From The Drawn Cutlass.

For those Ace of Spades HQ fans, a mention from the Book Horde.

From Goodreads.

Vox Day’s excerpt. I’m happy to see that someone finally commented on “Canticle 762”

Sales are weird. No news, no plug or promotional that I’m aware of, suddenly it jumps from #30,000 (number 60 or so in genre) to #11,000 (#19 in genre)… (dig, dig, dig) AHhhh… A mention at theĀ  Ace Of Spades book thread as a book plug. That’s why. Whew. THANKS, Horde!

Another review

Another review up at Men of the West. Very kind words. Be really funny if it got me nominated for a “inspirational/spiritual writing” award that I’d come in dead last for : – )

Reviews are interesting. The CH review had a funny line: it said there was a lot of “logistics porn” typical of “post-apocalyptic” novels. Indeed, it said, that HosP was a post-apocalyptic novel, but one where the blasted and desolate landscape was not the physical one, but the spiritual one. I’d never thought of it that way, but… yeah. That’s a reader who gets it, and phrases it in a way that I’d never have thought of, but is very apt, almost poetic, in its eloquence. That’s one of the fun things about reviews – the can give insight and perspective on how others see what you said in ways that are helpful.
