The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy | Review by James J. Cudney

It’s always a thrill to receive a noteworthy review, so I hope you don’t mind me sharing this one. The Heart Stone Chronicles is dear to my heart because of my encounter with a fairy elemental who I called the swamp fairy. One thing led to another and the next thing I knew, that little being had ignited my writing career and sent me on a journey of self-discovery!

I have this book listed at a $.99 Kindle special for the rest of October. If you haven’t read it, I hope you’ll check it out.

Meanwhile, here is the link to James’ review:

I’m much obliged that a guy would read my YA fiction coming of age tale.

Thanks for reading and for stopping by!

  2. Jay wrote a beautiful review, Colleen. Congratulations!

  3. A fabulous review, Colleen. I’m on board and totally agree. When is the winter edition coming out? Soon?

    • I’ve run into some health issues and will need some hand and arm surgery. Everything is on the back burner for now. I just couldn’t catch up with moving and everything. What a year! <3

      • So sorry to hear that health issues have been slowing you down. I had a crappy year too, but where you didn’t seem to miss a beat, my writing/blogging life almost stopped. Here’s to a much better 2020. And remember that I’m happy to beta-read whenever you’re ready. <3
