to my reviewers!

I sent the galley proof version of ‘Captain’s Surrender’ out to various websites to see if they fancied reviewing it prior to its release. That way people would have an idea what it was about and whether it was any good before they bought it.

Wow! I’m absolutely over the moon about the two I’ve received so far.

Now this is what I’m talking about. If you want a taste of what floats my boat when it comes to gay historical fiction, (no pun intended), then this is it.

Thrilling! On every level, Captain’s Surrender is thrilling. Alex Beecroft spins image, voice, character, setting, and story into a captivating whole, accomplishing the rare feat of inducing in the reader a forgetfulness that we are, indeed, reading…

I said at the beginning of this review that Captain’s Surrender thrilled me. It satisfied a craving I’ve had for decades, for a certain kind of book, the kind that’s so seldom written it’s an almost violent surprise when one crosses my path. It drilled right down to the bedrock of my psyche, dug out that part of me that whiled away childhood afternoons with elaborate seagoing, swashbuckling epic fantasies, then set it in the sunshine beside my adolescent longing for a more bent, more tolerant world. Add to that damned good writing to satisfy an adult self with high standards and broad tastes, and you’ve got a keeper. And something to recommend with impunity.

To say I’m chuffed would be understating the issue 🙂 I am absolutely on cloud 9!

Don’t agree with me about what, Idetrorce? I’m at a loss.

Do not mind the comment by Idetrorce. It seems is sort of a spam comment that is appearing on all types of blogs.

Thanks Dauntless! Have you been having it then too? I got the same comment on a different post, so the second time I just deleted it and marked it as spam. I hope that will be the end of it! Honestly do people have nothing else to do? How very sad 😉

No, I had it not personally, but I happened to read about it while web-surfing. I wonder if, rather than the disturbing and useless action of a single troublemaker, it’s a subtle way to check for active and inactive blogs and forums…
