Raw and Loose
A person oughta google herself from time to time I suppose. I've been neglecting to do such things lately, and then there's the 'what you don't know can't hurt you' aspect of it all. I'm not surprised that Red Velvet Forest hasn't much been reviewed. In fact, I can't say I'm sad that the usual people who hate my books have left it alone. A hearty thank you to them.
I was pleased though, I admit, to see these short few lines this morning (though they're from way back in September as it turns out) by Jennifer Still in the Winnipeg Free Press. Mainly because this is precisely the kind of reading/reader I was hoping would find RVF.
Suffice to say it made my day to read this:
"These are poems that read with an intense privacy, as diary entries, raw and loose, written as if never to be seen."
