The Verdict is IN!

18 Oct

Okay V.I.P. Reader’s!    This is what the Writer’s Digest Judges said about Clever Little Book! Didn’t win the prize we wanted, but appreciate their comments.    Not bad!  We’ll take it… #TeamCleverLittleBook

Judges Commentary*:

Davis is an inveterate storyteller. This is obvious from her tall tales that link one story/chapter to the next in Clever Little Book and which seem to spout almost effortlessly from her pen. Before long, the reader finds that crossover details from one story (for the chapters feel that way at first, as if they are individual stories that flow one into another as if by chance, not design) have interwoven themselves into a plot, that of an old woman who has waited a lifetime for her love. This old woman, like almost all the other characters, is easy to like and feel for.
What struck me most was the inventiveness of Davis’™ novel. She tells her stories like a campfire storyteller, one who never runs out of ideas. Her plots meld past and present, passing from one continent to another effortlessly. They are enchanting.
