“Roundup 3” or “Between the Fine Lines”

I would like to take this time to recognize two more much-appreciated buddies who took the time to recognize me on their blogs during the launch week of “The Swan Prince (Book One of The Wilderhark Tales)”.

Thank you, Jillian!

Thank you, Jillian!

Over at A Fine Line, Jillian Cottle and I chat about my relationship with the dear friends who live in my head … which just goes to show the effectiveness of carrying on like a madwoman at restaurants in San Francisco as a networking ploy. (That’s one small display of charming artistic insanity for me, one giant leap onto the blog of another member of writerkind!)

Thank you, Krystal!

Thank you, Krystal!

Meanwhile at Between The Lines, I had another writer-to-writer dialogue with Krystal Maestas (or @KeeKeePie, as she’s known around Twitter, where we rub each other’s elbows the most). There’s more character talk, naturally (conversations about me where I don’t mention characters are the exception, never the rule), as well as my advice for anyone who wants to be Danielle E. Shipley when they grow up by self-publishing a book. (Good news, kids: You don’t have to grow up to be me. I haven’t!)

I’ve said it already, and I’ll say it again: Thank you, Jillian and Krystal, for your time and attention! I thank you, my characters thank you… And speaking of characters and rounding up, I managed to wrangle the main cast of “The Swan Prince” into sharing why they think you ought to read their book. So for today’s ending note, here’s Doctor Villem Deere!

Why Villem Deere thinks you should read “The Swan Prince:

His thoughtful eyes pierce the distance as he analyzes the market. “Fans of fairytales will likely enjoy the creative reimagining of archetypical elements. Danielle’s narrative voice has already received high praise, hailed as witty, beautifully-crafted, and even reminiscent of Tolkien; this should please much of her potential readership, I think. It may excite the female demographic to know that Sigmund and I seem to be considered attractive male leads. And if you like your heroines sharp and stubborn, Sula ought to suit you just fine. My author has put a great deal of care into the production of her visually attractive, reasonably priced debut novella, and any positive attention her work garners from you will be, in my estimation, well earned. Do please consider purchasing your own copies today, and, once having read it, leaving a review of your impressions. Your time is much appreciated.”
