Readers Favorite Review of OG by Brittany Shannon

Image
I thought today couldn't get any better... I'm wearing the new OUTFIT I bought over the weekend, on my super fun girls trip with my mom and sister. I went to Walmart and bought my kids $100 worth of winter clothes (trust me, Walmart is a GEM for me and my kids who go through clothes like fruit snacks). It's a gorgeous day in the upper 70's. My bathroom is almost remodeled by my fabulous husband. My virtual book launch party is literally in less than 2 hours!!! And I just got my review back from Readers Favorite. Guyssss I got 5 out of 5 stars!!! This is a shock. I don't know why, since my book has gotten ONLY 5 stars on Amazon, But I just need to pinch myself. I'm so grateful and happy right. Now. I am smiling pretty hard. Here is the review below and don't forget to join my virtual party for your chance to win a SIGNED COPY!  4-7pm MTN time. Click here to join .

Critic's Review for Og by BookLife Prize in Fiction

Image
My heart is like, pounding. A 9 overall....a 9!?!?!?! And a 10 in character/execution!?!?! I have worked so hard for this and I'm seriously beyond thrilled. Below is my critic's report of Conquest of Canaan: Og by Brittany Shannon by BookLife Prize in Fiction: Assessment: Shannon's compellingly realized historical novel features plucky Kaya Lucan, a cynical, misanthropic wine aficionado, struggling to live in the war-torn Avoca region of Canaan in 1406 BC. The novel's strengths lie in both its taut suspense and its vividly drawn characterization; both Kaya and her childhood friend Travin are lavishly brought to life. This is crisply written and consistently engaging. Score: Plot/Idea: 9 Originality: 9 Prose: 8 Character/Execution: 10 Overall: 9.00 For more info on Og, join our virtual Facebook launch party on September 27! www.facebook.com/authorbrittanyshannon and join event!
