Bitten by Books just gave TECHNO THRALL a 5 out of 5 Tombstones review. Woot!
Deyla Reckard, a detective in a world filled with artificial intelligence, is caught between her own desires and her duty when she is sent to track down a renegade pleasure-robot. By day, she works to find the supposedly malevolent android; by night, she struggles to face post-traumatic stress disorder and an erotic need that she yearns to have fulfilled.
This is one of the best novellas that I have ever read. It was hot, interesting, and set in a world that never lost my interest. Deyla’s struggles and unwilling acceptance of the AI community are fascinating; the characters are engaging. I want to read more, and soon!
Wow! Thank you, Jennifer!!!!
My writing gets really mixed review--you either love me or hate me. I'm told that means I have a strong voice. I can live with that!
Well, that made my holiday season. And I Do has been ending up a some pretty prestigious "Best of 2009" lists, including Jayne at Dear Author: http://dearauthor.com/wordpress/2009/12/15/top-romances-of-2009-by-jayne/
and genrereviws: http://community.livejournal.com/genrereviews/103307.html
Both reviews begin by saying they don't usually like anthologies, so it's an even greater compliment.
I'm so proud to have been a part of it and glad to see it's carrying on. The line up for I Do Two was just announced: http://alex-beecroft.livejournal.com/114604.html
I didn't submit to I Do Two (isn't that a great name?) because I was diligently focussing on SHIFT HAPPENS, which is currently being shopped around. I just completed a two week course on pitching where we learned how to condense our novels down to 3 sentences. What do you think of mine?
Urban Fantasy (m/m)
When anthropologist ADRIAN THORNAPPLE stumbles on an illegal drug lab, his Amazon expedition morphs into a nightmare chase through the rainforest and the spirit plane. Lost and desperate, Adrian partners with a shape-shifted secret operative and together they bring down the drug lords, fall in love, and save the world. In this Brokeback Mountain meets Ladyhawke gay urban fantasy, Adrian just wants to go home…until he learns that saving the world is a lot more fun than a day at the office.
