I'm remiss in mentioning a new quote, one that made me squee!
Betsy Dornbusch's Exile is a non-stop adventure with a fascinating world and some terrific magic. Carol
Berg, author of Novels of the Collegia Magica, Lighthouse Duet, Books
of the Rai-kirah, Bridge of D'Arnath, and Song of the Beast
Carol is a friend but she's also one of the Writers I Most Admire (WIMA). Actually, she's one of the People IMA. And I've been a little...er, sensitive about my magic in EXILE. I didn't want the regular kind, but there's this sword, see... yeah. Trope city. So if she likes it I must've done something right. Yay!
