I felt I had to write a blog post to celebrate getting my first reviews for Crystal Eyes on Amazon, both 5 stars!

The very first one was on Amazon US (and can be found here) and the reviewer got in touch via Twitter to mention it.  It was a very gratifying and exciting moment; very satisfying to discover that I'd created something that someone had enjoyed!
It was a well written review and certainly made some very valid criticisms (his point about the first chapter being long and delaying the start of the story was one I wrestled with a great deal before publication - that opening section was deleted and added back in about four times).

His homepage is and I think it would be well worth your time to check his work out.

The second review appeared on Amazon UK tonight (apparently left by one R. Rat...), and again it was 5 stars!

A huge thank you to both reviewers, and also to the one random sale I've had on the Spanish Amazon store.  I don't know who you are or how you stumbled on Crystal Eyes, but gracias!

This has been a good day.  And now, back to editing my NaNoWriMo novel
