Wednesday Words 4.11

A while back I applied for a review from a professional review publication. A few friends had used them before and considered them not a scam. I heard nothing for like 8 months. I assumed A) they hated it. B) it was so bad they declined to even send it out to reviewers. C) well you can imagine.

So um today I found out I am up for an award from them for how highly I was reviewed.

The review is here.

But I’ll cut and paste to save you some effort:

An interesting take on a time period in the not so distant past, “Ostrich Mentality” is an eye-opening tale with a colorful cast. Despite being 316 pages, the reader will fly through this fast-paced novel, immersed in its intelligent suspense. The fact that this novel is not far from the truth gives the story a sinister feel. The reader feels invested and engrossed in Galatea and her journey. It is also refreshing to read a clever tale where advanced technology is very different from what we know today without the story losing its credibility and development. Overall, “Ostrich Mentality” is an engaging work of espionage and biological warfare. Some may find the topic boring and tedious, but fans of speculative fiction should make sure to add it to their to be read list!

Say what?

Ostrich Mentality is up for a RONE Award. Reader voting will take place April 23rd to April 29th for my category, Suspense/Thriller.

Vote at for Ostrich Mentality April 23 to April 29th.

If I get through this round it goes to a panel of industry professional who will pick the winner in each category.

I’m kind of flummoxed. But what the heck…

Vote at for Ostrich Mentality April 23 to April 29th.

  1. Woo Hoo! My book, Another Cinderella is up for a Rone Award too, Week of April 16 – 22! I will tell you that although InD’Tale has done 6 of my book reviews, only one has ever gotten to the Rone awards. My Roots Entwine got a five star too, but no go on the Rone Awards. So feel proud of yourself, my friend! I’ll vote for you!
