The Buccaneer Blogfest sails on and we're at the stage when we are supposed to share and promote one of our works. I've chosen One More Victim and wanted to share some recent positive, really positive, comments about Victim.
One More Victim is a literary novella that contains a Holocaust element and when offered free (and I'm not going to do that anymore) has gone to #1 Amazon ranking for World Literature>Jewish. As a paid ranking, it once it #92. I think that gave me the right to call it a best seller, but that is term much abused. It has a strong romance element, too. And it can be considered a coming-of-age young adult work, as well. Most of my works are pretty difficult to put into genres. How about the genre of grab-the-reader?
Anthea Carson recently had this to say.
I could not put this book down. It was absolutely mesmerizing. First of all, I have a thing for books about loves that start in childhood, so it had me hooked right there. But also, this writer is just amazing. The way the language flows makes you want to keep reading. There is something very erotic in the story too, even though it was not cheap eroticism. I like that, when a book is sexy without overdoing it. Anyway, I highly recommend this book, and I will be looking for more books by this author. Can't get enough of his work.
just wish there was more
This short story packs so much into a short length it's hard to believe. It's very well written and like I say in my title I wish there was more of it, not because the story doesn't satisfy because it definitely does. I guess I'll just have to get some more of the authors work.
A flash novel?
I'm an older gentleman living out in the boonies, so sometimes I forget that the world has seemingly sped up, even as I've slowed down. Having said that, this book felt like a duststorm packed in a tornado and wrapped in a hurricane. And I say that in the most flattering way. Attwood (this is my first experience with this author, and I'm pleased to say a surprisingly delightful one) manages to include so much back story in such a short space that I couldn't help but feel a bit rushed...and yet it didn't feel rushed. It was just the right back story and it was well constructed. The story itself was such a delight to discover. It left me breathless.
