This morning I received a letter from James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief at The Midwest Book Review.  My fantasy novel “Weathercock” is reviewed in their August 2011 online book review!!!

I am . . .well, I’m bouncing off the walls at the news.  MBR is a respected forum and I could not — could NOT — be more pleased and excited about this.  THANK YOU to Mr. Cox and to Margaret Lane, the reviewer.  Thank you to everyone who has been supportive of Kinner’s tale.



About Melissa Crandall

Longer ago than I care to admit--although I will--I cut my writing teeth on fanzines and media tie-in novels. Since then, I've moved on to narrative nonfiction, speculative fiction, and essays. I write to explore and understand the world around me, the things I see and experience nearby or from a distance. If I shake myself up, cool. If I shake you up, even better. Not gratuitously--what's the point in that?--but to set what I know, or think I know, on end and realize, "Well, doesn't it look different from this side!" My work is neither sexually explicit nor graphically violent. Let's face it - your imaginations will come up with things far worse than anything I could write, no matter how descriptive. Besides, it's just not my thing. I live in Connecticut with my supportive husband Ed, a cat named Ruby who might just think she's a dog, and an epileptic Australian shepherd named Holly who isn't quite certain anymore who she is, except she knows she loves her mommy.
