Valentine’s Day, Smalentine’s Smay. According to this review by Ann of the great book review blog “Ann Reads Them,” Late Night Partners is “set in an intriguing, somewhat dystopian world, and is packed with interesting characters, quite a bit of action, and several different relations you are left wanting to read more about. Everything unfolds under a general tone of darkness and eeriness … There are moments that are beautifully written and that evoke real sympathy for the creatures of the night, especially for Doris, and I liked that we through her see a parallel drawn between being black and the struggles of her new life where she’s simply not human anymore.”
I’ve since expanded the novella, between the above review and the also recent one at https://sowereadthisbook.com – from which I will post an excerpt from soon.
In the meanwhile, check out Later Night Partners and both of those very fine, subscription-worthy book blogs. Citygirlscapes.com, too.
