Good Review! Sad Rejection.

Okay, first the good news:

The first review came in for Chameleon's Colors today. This review is by The Cajun Book Lady.

Here is the highlight of the review:

"This ebook was sent to me by the author for review and while I'm not normally one for ebooks the cover really caught my attention. I'm so glad that it did!

I will say that I was taken in by Aubrie's writing style from the very beginning. She is descriptive but not overly so. You can visualize the story easily and see your characters as I think she pictures them. It was a fast paced story that kept me interested and entertained the whole time I was reading. For me this was a story of trying to fit in and how sometimes you can only find true happiness when you look within yourself. I thought this was a wonderful short story and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a bit of science fiction mixed in with their reading..."

And now the bad news. Song of the Bard was rejected today from the Music From Another World anthology. He said, "I thought it was very gripping but just doesn't fit the collection." I'm sending it to Mindflights Magazine today. So wish me luck!

Aww, that's a bummer about Song of the Bard, I really liked it. I should have my review up for you tomorrow :)

Aubrie said...

Thank you Bethany!

Clearly, that editor is deranged. :)

Aubrie said...

Ha! Thanks, Diana! You made me laugh tonight.

I'm sorry about the rejection, but good luck with the new submission.

Aubrie said...

Thank you, Tracy!

That's a wonderful review! I can't wait to get a chance to read it myself.

Also, that's a shame about your short story. I really enjoyed it, and I'm certain someone else will pick it up.

Aubrie said...

Thank you, Cherie!

What a fantastic review! That's awesome. I know rejections never feel nice, but that was a nice rejection too. I'm sure the story will get picked up by someone else.

Thank you, Natalie!
