Dragon’s Fire

So, I get an alert this morning and when I check it out, I’m surprised to see it is a review of my little short, DRAGON’S FIRE.  This is a tiny fantasy story that came out last year.  The review was posted on the eharlequin site which pleases me a great deal even though the reviewer took issue with the length because it didn’t allow for enough development.  I’m pretty much okay with her comments and am pleased to find this story on the eharlequin site.  Take a peek if you’re interested:  http://community.eharlequin.com/content/faery-rose-dragon%E2%80%99s-fire-sheri-lewis-wohl

Someone told me a long time ago, when I got my first crappy review, that crappy isn’t all bad.  What’s bad is when no one is talking about your work at all.  If you can get someone to read your work and take the time to talk about it, good, bad or otherwise, you’re doing something right.  That made me stop and think.  It also made feel much better about the person who didn’t care for my work.  At least they took the time to say something.  So to find someone talking about DRAGON’S FIRE a year after it’s release, even if she did have problems with it, makes my day.  Thanks eharlequin!

If anyone has thoughts on how you feel about reviews, tell me what you think.  Happy hump day.

Romance is in the house

0022It’s the April Blog event that began on April 1st over at Silver James’ and now it’s my day to keep the love rolling.   How about mysterious love?  I was in our nation’s capitol this week and as I sat at Union Station sipping my latte (I am from the Pacific Northwest after all…) I took this picture.  The statues that surround the main entrance so intrique me.  It’s a bit like stepping back-waaay back–to the days of knights and damsels, of honor and valor, light and dark.   It’s the ultimate romance.  You sit in that awesome building with the sights and sounds of one of the most magical cities in our country and you almost believe that at any moment your hero will step through the doors.  Your knight will kneel before you, take your hand in his and promise you love for eternity.  With a sigh and a smile, you open your eyes, come back to reality and stand.  Sure, it’s all in your imagination but that’s what fantasy is all about.  For me, I took one last look around the building, letting my gaze linger on the knights before I turned and left.  It was time for a taxi to take me to the airport.  I know that even as I now sit several thousand miles away, the knights still wait and the next time I step through the doors of Union Station they will still wait for me, romance and fantasy mine for the taking.

0062And now my friends, it’s time for a little romance of your own.  I only ask one thing.  Leave me a comment and tell me what fills your heart with fantasy and romance.  Is there a Union Station filled with knights to fuel your heart?  At the end of the day, I’ll do a random drawing and the winner will receive a nice little heart candle holder and votive candles to help fill your world with romance.  At the end of the April madness event, I will send the winner of the grand prize an electronic copy of one of my books.  Take a look at my website at www.sherilewiswohl.com to see what you might win.

Now remember…tomorrow, April 24, 2009,  you’ll need to visit Nancy O’Berry at http://www.myspace.com/nanoberry
