The Speaker has been out for a little over two months and has already gotten some great feedback from both readers and professional reviewers. One of the things that’s struck us as being quite wonderful, and that Andi’s really appreciative of, is the consistent references and reactions towards feminism, the inner torment of depression, and the refreshingly realistic relationship between Irewen and Laegon.
They get it!
It can be so frustrating to an author when their message is completely lost on readers. It’s a shame, but sadly, it does happen. Sometimes one or two people will pick up on it, but it’s rare when a significant percentage of those who’ve written reviews are impacted by the very issues an author worked hard to incorporate into their novel. It’s the mark of a truly talented author to be able to craft a story in such a way that the underlying issues are perceived by the majority of readers.
We’re very proud and excited to have had the opportunity to help bring The Speaker into the world. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed publishing it!
