And I wake up to this from @dianacw60:
This book took me much longer to read than I expected. It was very personal for me on several levels. I literally had to walk away from it many times to shake off some complicated and disturbing feelings. I can imagine this must have been a difficult book for you to write. It felt very personal in that way too. I may be wrong but I sense this book is a release of sorts for you... It's a horror story, a fantasy, and a bit of a memoir. It is beautifully written, even in its extreme horror. The intricate details are so vividly portrayed and jumped out of the page and into my consciousness. The imagery was at times frightening and it made me want to skip past it. Yet I found myself sticking to every word like an addict seeking his next high. Your story sucked me in in the beginning, held me tight in the middle and then toyed with me at the end. Congratulations! That is a rare occurrence for me. TUBE is not just a story, it's an experience! Thank you for your genius, your artistry and for sharing! I am in love with your mind.
I love you, Diana. You give me courage to keep writing.
