A Reason to Celebrate

ANGEL WINGS Wallpaper__yvt2I will fess up: reviews matter to me. I love knowing that my words had impact – love, hate, meh – it’s all good. And since they are never thick on the ground for most of us, when you get one, and it’s … um … really, really wonderful?

Well, it’s time to celebrate!


10349204_787195614647481_1877261658912333724_nWhat touched me most with Kol Anderson’s review of GOOD BOY BAD for GGR-Review was his calling it poetry, because poetry speaks to us at a more visceral level. It is, at once, spare and complex, challenging in its form and function, and it weaves a spell, a magic spell of words. To know this story touched him that way honors me, deeply.

“The book gave me serious withdrawal. I love wordy books, but this one wasn’t writing, it was poetry… Seriously, I am totally stoked and just in another world. God, the poetry!”

About Nya Rawlyns

Crossing boundaries, taking no prisoners. Write what’s in your soul. It’s the bass beat, the heartbeat, the lyrics rude and true. Nya Rawlyns is the pseudonym of a writer who cut her teeth on sports-themed romantic comedy and historical romances before finding her true calling in the wilderness areas she has visited but calls “home” in that place that counts the most: the heart. She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or two pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.

    Well deserved. I can sure admire the craftsmanship, the wonderful prose. Yes, dark, uncomfortable and beautifully written.
