Five Star Review!

Reader’s Favorite Five Star Review!!!!

Oh, wow! I am totally bouncing off the walls with excitement right now. The illustrious Reader’s Favorite reviews just gave Shadowsong their five star seal of approval!

So shiny!


I can’t even begin to tell you all how excited I am about this! Here’s their review:

Shadowsong by C.M. Williams is a fantasy/allegory short story of around eight thousand words. Brave and determined Rhianna enters the Vault of the Master’s Song with her faithful warrior, Aronne. Her mission is to find the Orb and so possess its powers. But the ruthless and evil Lord Rogar has other plans. In the battle that ensues, Aronne is injured, the Orb appears to be destroyed, and Rhianna and Aronne find themselves trapped in the vault. Will Aronne forgive her for using him, and can Rhianna discover the real power and purpose behind the Orb?

C.M. Williams has crafted a well-written and intriguing story. The plot moves at a good pace with plenty of fast action and nail-biting moments. I loved the beginning where not too much is given away, and the reader is drawn into the magic, tension, and danger. Scenes are described with enough vividness to make them and the unique and fascinating characters believable.

Essentially, Shadowsong is about the battle between good and evil that has existed in the world since its creation. And it is about the light and goodness that constantly attempt to break through and triumph, despite man’s all too often inability to see and understand it. Rhianna’s discovery about the real purpose and power behind the Orb is a comparison with the biblical and Christian message about discovering truth, forgiveness, and finding strength in belief. The author weaves a subtle and powerful message through the story, making this a thought-provoking as well as entertaining fantasy. –  Reader’s Favorite

Perilous Tower is sailing along at a smooth and steady pace. I added 3,570 words this week to add up to the grand total of 7,780.  So far, Tower has been coming along much more smoothly than its predecessor Midnight Dancer, and I pray it stays that way. I

‘m using third person POV in this book instead of the first person present POV I used with book one, so i’m going to have to go back and completely re-do that novel stem to stern.

The further I get on this project, the more problems I see with book one. The re-writes on Midnight Dancer are going to be incredibly extensive. I feel a bit frazzled just thinking about it.

This week has been a slow start into Perilous Tower. I only managed to write a few days this week. 2427 words were added, making a grand total of 4210 words thus far. Hopefully this coming week will turn out more productively.

I have been terribly negligent of this blog of late, and for that I apologize.

About two weeks ago I completed the rough draft of Midnight Dancer, before taking a short writing break to recharge and catch up on some things that I have let slip lately.

I am now 1,783 words into Perilous Tower, the sequel to Midnight Dancer. I hope to get the entire series’s rough drafts written before I dive seriously into the editing and publication end of things. I’m know for changing details and coming up with new ideas at the last possible second, so I want everything set in stone before publication.
