After the absolute joy of acceptances, and the happiness of holding in one's hands books that include one's own work, the third thing that most brightens the writerly part of a writer's heart is when people speak kindly of one's beloved stories.
When it comes to reviews, Steve Cameron has just scored a beauty, with So Sad, The Lighthouse Keeper being named as one of the five best stories in the Anywhere But Earth anthology by Thoraiya Dyer, who is no slouch when it comes to writing award winning stories and knows her stuff. Congratulations, Steve. You must be floating as high as a kite on the fumes.
Thoraiya's in depth review of ABE can be read here, but be warned, it includes much talk of book huggling.
So, have you huggled a book lately?
