Dragon’s Lure Review

December 18, 2010

Dragon's Lure, Edited by Danielle Ackley-McPhailThe Dragon’s Lure anthology, edited by the wonderful Danielle Ackley-McPhail, has been reviewed at BSC, and they love it.  They even mention “The Dragon Muse,” my short story.  Here’s the link.  And here’s an excerpt from the review:  “If you don’t yet feel the lure of the dragon, you will after you get this book, and you will be hooked for life[…]Dragon’s Lure: Legends of a New Age is a marvelous collection of stories about dragons that I highly recommend.”

So if you’re still looking for a gift for the reader on your list, this might be a great time to pick up a copy.

“This is the best idea for a writing book that I’ve ever seen. It’s like sitting in a room full of professional writers, and after each one delivers a riff on one aspect of writing, the others weigh in to buttress, amplify, refine, or add to what was said. It’s an extended conversation with writers who know what they’re talking about – and what matters in writing fiction that really communicates with readers.”
– Orson Scott Card

The book is now available for pre-order from the publisher, BellaRosa Books.
