Ravens in the Library

People are starting to get their copies, and I am biting my fingernails waiting to see if my story works for people!

The two reviews I've seen so far have made me squee, though.

k_crow says: "Inanna's descent, a fortune told in cards, and the true experience of one soul in Vegas. I found myself in tears over and over again while reading this story. It goes into very dark places, and comes out the other side in hope. I know I'll be re-reading this story, whenever I need to be reminded that my life is what I choose to keep with me, and who I decide that I intend to be. It's a gift, paid for in blood, and written in the same."

thewronghands says: "But the really outstanding story of the collection, for me, was Shira Lipkin's "Fortune". From the mythic roots in the descent of Inanna to the modern wry word-twisting (I loved "Lie back and think of Vegas" as an encapsulation of half the things that are wrong with that city), she lays down a hard and shining path before you and compels you to walk it. I was caught on every word and drawn in to the character's journey. Really brilliantly well done; brava."

*quiet bounce and squee*

This story was written specially for this collection. You want to read it, right? And you want to help defray s00j's medical expenses, right? It's not sold out - yet. You should buy it.
