A Positive Review From The Ardent Reader!


Asking someone to read a book is a big request. It can take a lot of time to work through a book and it sometimes requires an emotional investment that feels like too much to ask of another person, especially when we have so many other things demanding our attention. Leech just got a review from The Ardent Reader and I'm overwhelmed!

Trigger Warnings?

So, you spend months or even years laboring on your book. You fill it with observations on life that might be your own, interject ideas or themes that horrify you, and add bits and pieces of your own life that are precious and sacred to you. You mine current events, overheard antidotes, dreams, fears, and slices of your own experiences in order to craft something new and speak to something you think no one else has said. It's not an accident when a writer refers to his or her work as their "baby," and like a proud parent, a writer imagines and hopes for their creation's future.

Leech Trivia

I thought it might be fun to share a little of the backstory for Leech, so here are a few trivia items about the book, the characters, and the logic behind it all. This list is broken into two parts, so as not to spoil anything in the book for people who haven't read it yet. Don't read beyond the break if you haven't read the book!
