Great Writer’s Steal


LUNA RISING was the subject of a Great Writers Steal essay! 

“Ms. Castrovilla imbues the book with a great deal of pathos and deals with it in much more comprehensive terms than you might find in straight-up romance novels.  (The “heat meter” is also lower.)  These choices make Luna Rising a novel that has a bigger emotional impact.”

Well written, engaging, and absolutely true to self!”
