First review for "The Space Between"

"The Space Between" by jp Rodriguez is the fourth novel in the Darkstar Fiction imprint and was recently let loose upon the world.

It just received its first review, in the Thunder Bay Chronicle-Journal, and they liked it!

"...when Rodriguez is in the mood, The Space Between is drop-dead gorgeous and I found myself reading some passages over and over because of their effortless poetry. At other points, I felt trapped with the narrator, inside a kind of solipsistic seizure, a lonely paranoia that threatened to implode it ... an interesting debut from a writer we will surely see great things from."

The novel is available everywhere now...

Organization of Book Publishers of Ontario, she signed and gave away
copies of Godblog to eager librarian attendees of the conference, One
