Meet the Author

Scott J. Callaway was born and raised in the small Maritime fishing community of Escuminac, New Brunswick. As a child, his most despicable moment was when he left his sister for dead in a hole in the snow while trying to escape the evil clutches of a talking doll. It was that moment when he realized that he could never be a hero and would have to settle with writing about them instead. Currently, he lives in the city where he works trying to provide for his wonderful wife and beautiful daughter in the best way that he can. He draws energy from peace and quiet and values the stillness of a room while enjoying a good book. His dream is to someday be able to share all the things he makes up in his head with the world.

    Meh

    Stories recealing the inside workings of an awkward girl's mind take some serious insight. When written by a man, the motivation tends to lose some depth. I think this main character would be well-received by men, since Charlie is the stereotypical epitomy of gamer-geek girl. But as light romance aimed at women, it falls a bit short. Too many stereotypes, an infusion of originality would really help this story.

    Good book

    I was really hoping that Charley would become a faerie. But the book is very realistic because I have been in the same tight spot. I'm glad they were not afraid to mention facebook and Lolcatz.

    Not to bad. I wanted her to end up with the fairy though.

    I suspect that this is the authors first writing to see to completion. It needs some editing, but overall, not bad. Give it a shot, its free after all.
    Pros:  Fun story, easy read.
    Cons:
    Some issues with sentences switching from first person narration to second person narration.
    I'm not sure the author has actually played online games, such as WOW. Maybe it has just been too over simplified, in an attempt to be understandable to a non geeky reader. Internet references are about 5 to 7 years out of date. I actually went back to check the publish date for this story. [I dont think I have seen anyone use "A/S/L" since AIM fell out of use.]
