Meet the Author

Valerie Gaumont is an evil genius whose mission is to take over the world. Her latest efforts were thwarted when her flying monkey army discovered beer. Currently they are in Rehab because no one likes a drunk flying monkey. (Thank you for your cards and letters of support.) When she is taking a break from villainy she can often be found with a pen in her hand. Yes, sometimes she is doodling, other times writing fiction and discovering new and interesting ways to combine reality with the outré. She has had short stories in the Violet Ampersand Anthology, Poetry, Prose and Other Voyages to the Edge, and the online Journal, Gothic Fairytales for Melancholy Children. In 2007 she was listed as a finalist in the William Faulkner International Writing Competition in the Novel-In-Progress category.

    Interesting

    Interesting plot with well formed characters. I certainly enjoyed the author's concept of space travel and could picture the old sailing ships of the past wending their way through the spaces between the stars. As a "cat person" I loved the introduction and role of Spin in the book.

    I gave this 3 stars (rarely do I give a book 5) due to the author needing a good editor. Run on sentences in few places, but what kept throwing me out of the story was the need for proper punctuation in many places. The author needs to learn the use of a comma and semi-colon. Otherwise I still recommend the story itself and plan on reading the next in the series.

    Although the concept of a sailing ship going from sea to space is a lot of fiction and very little science, I enjoyed this story. Characters were excellent and the interaction between varous characters made the whole concept sime how believable.

    There were some spelling, grammar, and editing issues but they really did not detract from the story.

    Interesting story but needs editing

    Really liked the plot line and first part of book quite intriquing....then became tedious with many details that added nothing to story with lots of grammar mistakes that made reading the rest rather annoying. Writer has potential for sure if a good editor works with her.
