Avenger Mine is the newest of The Kataran Series, and has been getting rave reviews by all kinds of readers. Now, I may be a little partial, but readers aren't. This is one of the first series of its kind. Romance readers who never thought of picking up a Science Fiction Book will find themselves craving the new genre, and Science Fiction/Fantasy readers will fall in love with the blended architecture of this new style of writing.
Recently a man who does not like romance, made sure to tell me this about Guardian Mine. "The style of your writing is really very good and I like that. I like your descriptions and dialogue so far...I want to be fair but the romance part of the story is leaving me uninterested. Keep in mind, It's good, but a little to hot for my taste. Although, that may be what readers of romance want. Your blend of fantasy and science fiction is done very well. This is, as far as I have read, a great book..." He went on to describe his favorite genre, but the fact he spent any time on a genre which he normally would not read was exciting to me.
Additionally, a woman who normally runs away from the Science Fiction isle, placed this review on Amazon. "Astonishing! Wrapped in Guardian Mine I could not wait to see Avenger Mine hit the shelves!! Well worth the wait and most certainly well worth jumping into Science fiction for. Great admiration goes to T.M. Slay for laying this wonderful story on paper for us to enjoy every exciting page. Ready for the third..."
For two very different readers to find a common interest in a series of books which neither of them would typically read, I find it astonishing and flattering!
Normally, I wouldn't put such things about my own writing into a blog like this. One of my greatest fears is being a "look at me!" person. But this book took so much of my own heart and soul in the writing that I feel it's a part of my blood stream, the words in it are written on my organs, and the characters are more than real to me.
Could I have mental problems? Absolutely! However, it's more likely I'm just a normal writer. So, I ask you to read this book and through it, get to know me in the process.
No, I'm not the heroine, my husband is not the hero, nor do the other characters come out of my daily life. Although, through the cracks, and in between the lines you'll see how my mind works, you'll learn what I believe, how I contribute to society in my own world, and how important fun is to my daily life. There is so much seriousness, so much dilemma, pain, and suffering all over Earth, I find it more than necessary to escape into other worlds in order to see the beauty of ours.
Life is precious, women are stronger than you think, and the survival of any and all races and beings is absolutely essential to a rich and rewarding existence.
Please check out Avenger Mine or The Kataran Series as a whole and let me know what you think about this grand new world!
