As I continue to plow my way through the first draft of the final book in the series, I received my Editorial Review from Literary Titan! My eyes are blinded by the Five Golden Stars! Come be blinded with me. Click the blue link!
Sometimes I wonder if what I’m writing is enjoyable to others or if my skills as a writer are improving (authors kind of work in a void, if you know what I mean). Getting to read reviews from my readers (both good and bad) makes that connection live (at least in my brain). Reading positive reviews feels fantastic. Receiving this professional review makes it all worthwhile. What a way to start the last month of this crazy year!
If you aren’t sure what an editorial review is, let me tell you. It is an unbiased review from a professional that will list the pros and cons with a comparison to the standards of the genre the story is in. It is where all those spiff quoted remarks on the backs of books come from.
I swear there are times when everything just wears you down and you could use a pick-me-up. And boom! I got one!
I know the says it, but Black Matilda won the Literary Titan Gold Award!
The Gold Award is bestowed on books that we found to be perfect in their delivery of original content, meticulous development of unique characters in an organic and striking setting, innovative plot that supports a fresh theme, and elegant prose that transforms words into beautifully written books.
I mean, wow! I was excited when I won the Silver Awards for The Matilda and Twistin’ Matilda, but I can barely contain myself! Getting the acknowledgment that your writing is not only worth reading, but improving? I am doing a little jib around my room right now!

Somehow I missed talking about this interview for the second book in my series! (I think I was elbow deep in edits or knee deep in the first draft of the final book or… maybe both. It’s been a confusing year.)
If you wanted to find about some of the challenges and goals I was working through in Twistin’ Matilda, then look no further!
After a fantastic Convention filled week, I received an Editorial Review for Black Matilda (found here at: Literary Titan) Click it! I dare you. Do it for the children!
For those not in the know, an editorial review is an unbiased review from a professional that will list the pros and cons with a comparison to the standards of the genre the story is in. It’s where those nifty quoted remarks come from.
I feel like I’m finishing strong at the end of 2021!
Wow! The first two of my books in the Matilda Series have received the Silver Award! How cool is that?
The Silver Award is bestowed on books that expertly deliver complex characters, intricate worlds, and thought-provoking themes. The ease with which the story is told is a reflection of the author’s talent in exercising fluent, powerful, and appropriate language.

Just so you know, the Silver Award is bestowed on books that expertly deliver complex characters, intricate worlds, and thought-provoking themes. The ease with which the story is told is a reflection of the author’s talent in exercising fluent, powerful, and appropriate language.
I thought I had posted about this awesome review about not only The Matilda, but also Twistin’ Matilda! But it must have been all in my mind or in the matrix or something!
It can be found on Lyndsie Clark’s page. There are some other great reviews for books on her site as well as a collection of her own short stories and flash fiction. She has a lot of excellent insight into her journeys in writing and I look forward to reading to her first book!
