Review Magic!

As we speak I am sitting on a 40 foot sailboat riding the waves around Cape Cod and the islands with my family (including my two young children) and a few friends (with their two young children) Oy! We're sailing for a week, and if I make it out alive after that time I'll post about the trip.

For now, you'll have to make due with my recent good news. TWO stellar reviews for Magician's Chains. The first was at Literary Nymphs Reviews where I received 4.5 Nymphs out of 5.

Critter Nymph said, "Michelle Polaris' Magician's Chains will please those who enjoy fantasy, as well as BDSM. The story is strongly written, pulling the reader in from the beginning and leaving them wanting to know both the men's secrets....Not only is the story strongly written but so are the characters....The chemistry between these two men is very intense. Be prepared as they burn up the pages almost from the beginning."

The second was at Rainbow Reviews where my book received FIVE STARS.

The reviewer said, "Throughout this novel, Polaris has captured the tension and the magic that is possible when the world of Fae meets the world of the humans. This is an excellent example of gay BDSM fiction taken to the next level. Polaris provides some subtle and suitable nuances to drive the plot....Readers interested in otherworldly genres, in hot gay sex, or in well written BDSM fiction, will enjoy and relish this book and thank Polaris for sharing her understanding and writing magic."

You can see how both of these pleased me. The second in particular was a treat because this was the first time I've written a male/male romance.

So imagine me glowing from the praise as I ride the waves and pray like hell the kids don't fall off the boat. I'll submit my full report later. Wish me luck.

Hooray! I did a little fist pump when I saw that 5 of 5 review on the EC business loop last week—well done!

Thanks everyone. I'm back and alive. No sunken boat although we did ride out a gale. I'll post more about it later.
