>Today I received my first reader/fan e-mail! Woo-hoo!!! The reader had only finished two chapters and felt compelled to tell me to write more.
I haven’t been feeling very creative lately, but this may have just kickstarted me again. Can you tell I have a big grin on my face?
Recently, I rec’d another review in the Passionate Ink newsletter and couldn’t be happier with it.
Here’s a snippit:
I was somewhat skeptical that in so few pages Ms. Rayburn could adequately deal with the heroine’s history and her new relationship, but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Not only is Zeenie’s history dealt with, but because Turk is such an honorable man and because he loves Zeenie so much, he’s instrumental in helping her meet and conquer the phantoms of her past. Watching these two strong, special people find love together was thoroughly enjoyable and brought tears to my eyes more than once.
Phantoms & Fantasies is the story of two wonderful characters, but it also introduces a unique and fascinating culture in the Crainesians. I hope Ms. Rayburn has plans to tell more stories about these interesting and talented people.
Phantoms & Fantasies has put Annie Rayburn right at the top of my auto buy list. With her fresh, strong voice, compelling characters and fabulous worldbuilding, I can’t wait to see what she offers readers next.

Isn’t that fabulous? I was thrilled.
