A New Review!

It’s so exciting to get a review. Along with most other authors, I’m sure, I check my Amazon page almost daily, and to discover a new review there brings a jolt of omgosh! Eeee! You go to look at it and your eyes speed through it. You can’t read it fast enough, and every word is like a bell, ringing.

Amazon doesn’t want friends or family to post reviews, and will remove them if they think there is an abuse of their policy. So, on top of the thrill of getting any feedback at all, the fact that it comes from a complete stranger brings a sense of validation for all the countless hours spent on writing the book.

My most recent review was my lowest-starred rating – a three, and that’s a-ok with me. The reviewer explained the reasoning (not their typical genre) and then, oh, manna to my ears, said,

“Sit back, relax, and enjoy the quality of the writing.”

The full snippet after gleaning the most positive comments is:

“The Harmony of Isis,” [is] not paranormal … maybe ‘surreal’ is a better moniker. … There’s a metaphysical layer to the whole narrative [and] she absolutely captures the dream-like sing-song almost-intangible nature required by the world she has constructed.

Have a look at “The Harmony of Isis.” … You’ll enjoy the world that Walter has meticulously constructed for her character(s) [and] the carefully textured metaphysical world – as well as the twining together of the two…distinct story threads.

…Sit back, relax, and enjoy the quality of the writing.”

So, thank you, kind stranger, for: a) reading my story; b) taking the time to write and post what you thought of it, and c) making my day with smiles, stars and sparkles! Fantastic!

The Harmony of Isis ~ Chosen as Goodreads group “Author Promo Co-op” Book of the Month: Historical Fiction!

Hello everyone!
I’m thrilled that my book, The Harmony of Isis, was chosen as the Book of the Month for Historical Fiction by the Goodreads “Author Promo Co-op” Group. If you enjoy digging your feet into ancient sands, this blend of history and fantasy will pull you in.

Museum curator Maggie learns, through a series of lucid dreams, the true story of Egyptian goddess Isis, her husband Osirius, and his wicked rival, Typhon. Maggie learns that she is a “harmony” chosen to help Isis reunite with Osirius. This time-jumping tale brings life to a long-neglected part of human history with a vivid and seamless window into the past.
