I can’t even begin to say how thrilled I am. I first read something of Cameron’s when she posted a Linky over at Write on Edge. Proving that I live under a ROCK, I didn’t realize that she is one of the Write on Edge site editors for several weeks after that. What I did realize was that this woman is a writer.
It was reading Cam’s fiction online that first made me feel the stirrings of willingness to post my own fiction on my blog. Although the Write on Edge prompts didn’t get my initial fiction, it was absolutely one of their editors who first inspired me. In fact, that linked fiction was so powerful that it led me to
troll stalk search Cameron’s site for more. One of the things that wasn’t there yet for me to find was the story of Roxanne and Frost. (It’s serial and continues in Christie’s Sandwich Shop, Frost Again, and I’ve Got Wheels and You Wanna Go For A Ride. But even without that particular story, I realized within about ten seconds that she had a short story for sale on Amazon.com, and that this was a writer worth paying for.
I’m not an impulse shopper. But the price was reasonable, I have Kindle for the PC, and Requiring of Care was worth every penny. I actually sent her gushy fangirl e-mail after I finished. I’ve also seen parts of her story Parallel Jump on her blog. It’s mind blowing.
She is, quite simply, one of the best writers on the web. And she’s letting me start her story circle today! She is listening if you are interested in launching one some week, so check out her site and drop her a line. You know you’d like to, and you can cook up some awesome stuff when you write for her.
