Slow DreamingUpdate

It’s been a busy week for Slow Dreaming.

I’ve visited Andrew Q. Gordon’s and blogged about why this story is close to my heart. You can read my post here.

I also dropped in at Jackie Keswick’s about re-editing the story for republication here.

Thanks to both of you for hosting me!

It’s also been a week for reviews:
Maryann at Queer Sci Fi said that Slow Dreaming is “just one of those stories to sit back, relax and enjoy!” Read her full review here.

Serena Yates at Rainbow Book Reviews said “this is a delightful story. It is melancholy, almost lyrical, with quite a few twists, and a very surprising yet extremely satisfying ending. Quite the temporal tale! If you enjoy stories about the consequences of paying with the time line, if you want to examine it in the light of a personal relationship, and if you like a few twists and turns, you will probably enjoy this story.” Read her full review here.

And Jay Hogan gave Slow Dreaming 5 stars on Bookbub: “Engaging mm romance set in NZ. A lovely read with delightful MC’s. Quirky and satisfying.”

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
