Sideshow by the Sea’s Second Review
October 23, 2009 by vonniewinslowcrist
“Ms. Crist’s first eBook short story will take you to a land of seaside delights and carnival excitement. Bordering on a dreamy current of fantasy and reality, the story of Dusana, the 17 year old side show will keep your attention for a fast, easy read.
The characters, so real you can see them, the sights of the neon lights and the sound of the calliope will transport you to Dusana’s world where she dreams of being a normal person. And the poetic, smooth language will engage you and seep into you like the ocean itself. The charm of the merfolk, candied apples and sideshow barkers will draw you to a touching and unexpected conclusion.
Welcome to the fantasy world of Vonnie Crist. This is her moment and it is a fine one, indeed.”
Whew-whoo! If that review doesn’t make a few readers want to download the story, nothing will! My advice to writers — ask someone whose opinion you value to review your story. They just might say, “Yes,” and then you can post the review so readers can see what others think of your writing. (A newer version of Sideshow by the Sea will appear in my new book to be published in 2012).
