I first met Leia Talon at a conference, where she stood out from the masses of excentric authors by wearing a spectacular green cloak. We chatted at meals, then went to the talks together, and found we had a lot in common with our styles, interests, and writing matter. Later, I was delighted to act as a beta reader for her, where I got to know her amazing characters and poetic style, which she weaves within narration seamlessly. She beautifully builds the kind of romances I enjoyed reading (to my surprise). Instead of the often-mind numbing smut out there, her tales were tender relationships. I envy her skill in telling tales of the heart!
When I read “Falling through the Weaving” I was already familiar with “Shelta’s Songbook”, so I felt like I knew Shelta a bit. I had been baffled by the mix of styles and time periods in the songbook, yet with reading “Falling”, it all became clear. A woman lost in the tempest of time, seeking control of her fate; I felt for Shelta and her plights. And, as a mother, I eagerly read Shelta’s passage into motherhood, something rarely depicted. Seeing Shelta with her child was genuine and pure, and something I related to easily.
I encourage people to take a look at “Falling through the Weaving” for an at-time heart-breaking, but soul-lifting time-travel fantasy full of music and love.
For beautiful art and poetry, check out Shelta’s Songbook too!
