So, I entered my book, Dark Was the Night, into a contest. It’s The BookLife Prize for Fiction. Once you sign up, you receive a Critic’s Report from a Publisher’s Weekly reviewer.
I know this is a long shot, and I don’t hold any pretenses of even coming close to winning. But my Critic’s Report is not shabby, if I may say so myself.
“Plot/Idea: 9 out of 10
Originality: 9 out of 10
Prose: 8 out of 10
Character/Execution: 9 out of 10
Overall: 8.75 out of 10″
“Plot: Full of drama, intrigue, and intense emotion, Dark Was the Night grips readers from the first page and doesn’t let up until the hard-hitting conclusion.
Prose: The author is clearly a gifted writer, able to convey debilitating fear, create tension, and to elicit a visceral response from readers. There’s a fine balance of detail, dialogue, and action as the chilling story unfolds.
Originality: This is a highly original work with memorable characters and a distinctive plot line.
Character/Execution: The author does an excellent job with characterization, particularly with Lucie, whose paranoia and fear dominate the book.
Blurb: Gripping and suspenseful, Dark Was the Night will keep readers on the edge of their seats.”
So, if this report tickles your interest, I’m happy to announce that I will host a giveaway of my book until the end of the month. That’s right, until Halloween, which is quite fitting since my book’s story takes place on Halloween Night.
What can you do to participate, you may ask? Well, it’s simple, just like this post. All those who liked it will be automatically included in the live draw that will take place on Saturday, November 5, at 4:00 pm EST on my Facebook page:
I will be giving away three copies of my book!
Good luck and have a spooky month!
