Reread and Review

Since my first book was published, Eena, The Dawn and Rescue, I've taken the time to re-read the adventure.  Happily, I found myself all smiles at the last page, entertained by my own story and eager to move right into the next book.  There were multiple places where I cringed at sections I wished to rewrite.  Never happy.  Never perfect.  (I'll admit I did make corrections in my personal digital copy of the book which led to an improved second publishing with added dialogue.)  But what author doesn't rearrange the same paragraph a dozen times, hoping to find the perfect delivery?  It's a curse.  It's a challenge.  

So I left a review on goodreads.com.  Thank you to those readers who have also posted kind reviews about Eena.  I truly appreciate it!


Eena, the Dawn and Rescue 
by Richelle E. Goodrich
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was written for me, so of course I love it.  The entire Harrowbethian Saga deals with relationships and fantasy exploits I often daydreamed about as a young woman.  What else was there to do with all that free time in school? 

It was delightful fun inventing new cultures and then mingling them in a way that forced a cast of dynamic personalities to interrelate.  Meet the strong and sexy Mishmorats and the fearless warrior Viiduns and the repulsive Ghengats and Eena's race―cemented in tradition―the refined Harrowbethians.  There is never a dull moment in this tale, whether running from frightful, gem-eyed dragons (that receive names in book two) or surviving the persecution of Ghengats or taking sides in conflicts between blood-related enemies as well as reluctant friends. Get ready to find yourself hooked on a lively fantasy-scifi-adventure-romance because this is just the beginning of Eena's unusual adventures!
