My six-story erotic collection, “Beneath Sea and Sky” got its first review — and it’s a good one! Thank you to author, Vida Bailey for the super-nice words about the stories and my writing. There are few things more validating and happy-making than having someone fall into your stories and enjoy them.

Oh, such a treat. I just read Shanna’s recent ebook, soon to be on kindle too, the very beautiful and inspirational ‘Beneath Sea and Sky’. Six tales of magic and longing that are the best thing I’ve read of hers yet. As always, her characters and language are heart stopping, heart in your mouth beating, painful and beautiful to read. Her ideas and settings are so sharp and clear, and as usual she doesn’t stray from the difficult, the blood and gristle, she embraces it and makes it sing.

The standouts for me are Heatsong, an evocative vampire story, Hands of Time, that speaks to me of breaking marriage so clearly I could weep, and the closing The Princess of Silk and Pain, a fairy tale rewrite that is a tour de force.

Get it! It’s a fantastically good collection. The only downside is how it leaves you wondering why you’d bother trying to write anything ever again after reading it…

So very wonderful. I’m getting the book ready for Amazon and Barnes&Noble now. And I’m still doing my “Find Shanna’s Flubs” contest — buy a copy of Beneath Sea and Sky and if you find any typo at all, you get a copy of “How to Spank Me” for free (as soon as it’s ready. I had a lovely summer flu-bug thingy this past weekend, so I’m a little behind).
