My first book blogger review!

Feeling all warm and fuzzy, I could squeeze someone right now...

Mallory-Mallory Heart Reviews says:

"A complex and multileveled contemporary fantasy, with its anchor in our world set in Chicago, "Renhala" keeps readers riveted and easily suspending disbelief while exploring an alternate world, at times lovelier than our own, at times horrifying and dangerous. Young Kailey undergoes a brutal and inexplicable assault, and through it finds that she has unheeded powers and abilities, and so do some of those around her. It is rather as if she looks through a glass table top and sees an entire other world co-existing with her own reality.

Author Amy Jo Lutchen demonstrates an incredible grasp of world-building. There are enough new species, locales, geographies, and cultures involved here to populate five volumes! Yet the tapestry of the two worlds is tautly woven and readily kept in mind as the plot swiftly unfolds."

What's got 52 focused and staring eyes, enough energy to power a locomotive, and the ability to melt a woman's heart? The local daycare children and teachers who hosted their local author, that's who! Thank you for letting me share such a precious moment with your all-too precious children.

Oh yes, I was very scared with the undivided attention, and even though I did read Kiki as Cuckoo (ONCE!), it was one of the best literary experiences of my life...

So, I am sitting on a stalled train right now, due to the train ahead of us hitting a car--poor people--and I decided to let everyone know of some foul info on the intranet. I decided to look up the reasoning behind witches having broomsticks, and Jinkies! Let's just say people are talking about hallucinogenic drugs and body parts. My goodness! Isn't Halloween sacred anymore? Oh, maybe that's Easter.
