I've been bursting at the seams to spread this news, but I felt I should hold off until it was officially posted. And as of today, it's officially posted!
I got a good review from best-selling author Piers Anthony, author of the Xanth series and the Incarnations of Immortality!
First, let me tell you how this came about. I've been a huge fan of Piers Anthony my entire life. His books were a big influence on my writing and storytelling style. When I decided to publish The Door to Canellin, I decided that I wanted to send Piers Anthony a limited edition hardcover copy. I didn't expect him to read it, but I really wanted to make that gift to him. To me, just the idea that he would have it on his personal bookshelf meant a lot to me. So, I e-mailed him asking if he would accept the gift. He graciously accepted, although he cautioned me that he might not read the book. I was ecstatic just that he'd have it!
Shortly after I sent the book, I received another e-mail. Piers had decided that he would read The Door to Canellin after all, and that he'd let me know what he thought of it when he finished. I was blown away! I hadn't dared hope he'd actually read it, much less that he would provide feedback!
Well, he provided more than feedback, he provided a full review for his monthly newsletter!
So thank you, Piers Anthony! You've made this author's day, week, month, and year! You're a fine author, and your support of the indie publishing community is inspiring!
