Let's Review

June 2011 brought, among other things, two great reviews of SHADOW POINT! Here are my favorite excerpts. First up is Victoria Brownworth from Lambda Literary (http://www.lambdaliterary.org/features/06/07/bits-pieces-summer-2011/):

"...Briant’s characterizations are strong. Madison’s first-person narration is in the hard-boiled-and-lives-alone-with-nothing-in-the-fridge-but-alcohol-and-condiments amateur detective mode and rings true... (Note from Amy: I love that line.) We believe everything about her right from the first paragraph. And like her, despite her foibles... Madison is a character who could easily return for a sequel... Shadow Point is super summer reading."

And now, some kind words from Salem West, aka The Rainbow Reader (http://rainbowreader.blogspot.com/2011/06/shadow-point-by-amy-briant.html

"SHADOW POINT is a feisty little romantic paranormal thriller... Madison McPeake is truly brilliant. (Note from Amy: Have to say I'm loving that line, too!) Her thoughts, actions, rationalizations, and internal dialogue were pure comedic poetry, even in the darkest part of the story.... a great book that scores high points in humor, mystery, and creepiness... Madison McPeake is someone I hope we get to meet again, because she is absolutely fun, fabulous, and a once-in-a-lifetime type of character... I can’t remember ever laughing my way through something this fiendish."

And now, of course, if we combine the two, we get: Super Boiled Fabulous Fiendish Condiments! Perfect for July 4th burgers and hot dogs. How I relish them...
