Since whenever I revise the book, my reviews go away, I’m putting them here for you:
Quotes from a Web forum about “Bedlam Castle,” when it was available separately as an e-book: http://itsamustread.yuku.com/forum/viewtopic/id/4255
“I really enjoyed this story!…I really did enjoy it; it was a sweet story – I’m looking forward to reading her other works now!” (jewelgirl1966)
“I read it and loved it!…It was very sweet….I had never read a paranormal romance before ‘Bedlam Castle,’ and found it surprisingly enthralling and fun. I enjoyed trying to guess what was going on, and was impressed that it was original and not full of romance-type cliches. I hope it has a sequel someday. Meanwhile, I look forward to reading your next book: Tojet!” (Alicia GA)
“Bedlam Castle” also got two ratings for an average of 6 stars.
Where did this book come from?
It is largely made up of dream-based stories that I started writing in the early 90s. In those days publishers didn’t like novellas and magazine editors didn’t like long short stories, so I put them together into one book with a central theme, a club for the paranormal and the strange.
