Is it my birthday? This week people have been so generous and lovely ...
Jo has put up the most fantastic review of my short story collection Dark Enchantment on Amazon UK. She says:
I've read Dark Enchantment slowly over the last few days, but if I'd had a choice I would have sat, consumed by it til it was finished. Thankfully Wildwood just arrived through the door this morning.
The first word that always strikes me as I read Janine's work is 'courageous'. The stories in this collection interweave myth and fantasy beautifully with fierce, passionate sex. They're gripping, they're scary, they immerse you in thier varied worlds, while still owning their own very different scenarios. "Ruby Seeds" is a perfect adaption of the Persephone myth, I can't imagine anything better.
Read this, and get drawn in to the frightening, evocative, creative and thoroughly erotic atmosphere. Janine doesn't pull back from the edge, she takes you right up to it.
I love this book.
What's more she titled her review "Ashblessed." You know how I love a good pun! And that's how I feel this week: blessed, in having friends all over the world.
