I am going to start with a regular weekly post that gives writing tips (not to be confused with tips on getting published, or writing a novel in general, which I do talk about sometimes anyway).
This will deal with problems at sentence or paragraph level. Grammar, style, that sort of thing. Yeah, I used to be an Engish teacher, for my sins. Some of it will be basic, some of it more advanced...so drop by on Sundays if you are interested.
ANOTHER REVIEW :
From Donna Hanson over at the Australian speculative fiction site: Specusphere
On the writing: "Larke’s writing too is so vivid and solid that at times it leaves me breathless or just plain green with envy."
On the main character: "As a character, Ligea is fearless, bloodthirsty, vicious, sexy and determined..."
"This character’s conflict and transformation was entirely convincing and satisfying to read."
On the world: "Heart of the Mirage has aspects of Havenstar’s inventiveness, with an interactive landscape that is highly imaginative and entertaining."
Oh wow. I think she liked it!
