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!

I’m so excited that Jessica Wren Fiction reviewed my book, The Harmony of Isis, and that she liked it!

Jessica Wren Fiction

More and more, I am beginning to enjoy reading historical fiction. I am learning a lot. In a 10th grade World History class, I learned about Ancient Egypt and the Pharaoh, but never much beyond that, Until reading The Harmony of Isis, it was difficult to think of ancient civilizations in anything other than abstract terms. Walter, an anthropologist by trade, brought to life the world of the Pharaoh and ancient Egypt in her gorgeously woven tapestry of a tale that juxtaposes the ancient with the modern, the light with the darkness, and the good with the evil. She humanizes people whom we are only used to seeing in heiroglyphic drawings by making them “real” people with pain, fear, joy, jealousy, good, and evil.

Isis (later revered as a goddess) is singing a powerful “song” in order to locate the remains of her dead husband, Osirius, who had been murdered…

The first-ever blog feature on THE HARMONY OF ISIS.

The first-ever blog feature on THE HARMONY OF ISIS.

I was so excited to have The Hermetic Library Blog cover my novel, THE HARMONY OF ISIS. There are many layers of symbolism and esoteric hermeticism in my novel … for those who are able to recognize them.

For those with no exposure to these concepts, the story is a love adventure with a clue-based quest at its core which weaves Ancient Egypt to all points in history, including our own.
