One of those rare moments in a writer’s life occurred yesterday morning when I opened up my mailbox and found an email from my editor containing the latest review on VIDEO MAGIC. VM is my second YA novel and was released in September. Not only does the reviewer provide a beautiful capsulation of the story, there’s not one hint or shade of a negative stroke anywhere. A review like this is a rare and beautiful pearl. Here’s an excerpt:
Author Vikk Simmons captures the feeling of teenage angst expertly in this short young adult novel. . . I was very impressed with the plotting and writing style of this author, who keeps the action moving swiftly, and carefully resolves all plot lines by the end of the novel. The characters were very real to this reader as I remembered my experiences in high school — so much rests on each event! The speed with which events happen at this age is highlighted by the author in the fast plot that never stops. I think this is a wonderful novel for teens, and I quite enjoyed it.
Fallen Angels also gave a good review to DIVIDED LOYALTIES last fall.
