The divine mind of the infinite

A week ago, Nicola Griffith blogged about something that happened to a lesbian couple in Miami. You can read all about it here:
Trembling with rage

For those of you who didn't read it, it's about a woman who died alone in a Miami hospital, while her life partner and their children were kept from her by hospital staff.

Colleen Lindsay read Nicola's blog and blogged about it here:
The Swivet: When Compassion Dies

Here's a comment from that blog, posted by Fawn Neun:

I'm just a straight chick, what do I know, except I know what's right. Love is love, people are people, nature creates us as we are meant to be and anyone who thinks they know better than millions of years of evolution or the divine mind of the infinite probably needs to check their ego at the door of reality.

A lovely new review

I'm delighted to let all my faithful readers know that RedAdept has posted an excellent review of Book I of When Women Were Warriors on her Kindle Book Review Blog. She has an unusual and very effective method of writing reviews. She gives an overall number of stars, and also gives stars for Plot/Storyline, Character Development, Writing Style, and Editing/Formatting. She also gives the author an opportunity to say a few words about the book, using questions that pretty much cover anything the author might want to say about it. The whole package provides a comprehensive, in-depth look at the book while giving nothing away in terms of plot twists or anything that would spoil the story for the reader. A very professional job, I think, and I would think so even if she hadn't given me 4 1/2 stars.

I wrote a response to the review, clarifying some of the points she brought up, and posted it as a comment on her blog.
