My good friend Tom Aswell, author and blogger, recently visited independent bookstore Cottonwood Books in Baton Rouge, LA. One of the first things he saw as he entered the store was a display of Shadowshine right up front.
Store owner Danny Plaisance commented that he had read “about 40-50 pages of the book and that he thought Johnny was a truly gifted writer. “Every author wants me to read his or her book, which is really impossible to do. But I did read some of Shadowshine and I really enjoyed reading it. It’s extremely well-written. He (Johnny) is an excellent storyteller.”
Thank you, Tom, for visiting Cottonwood Books and thank you, Danny Plaisance, for featuring Shadowshine in your store and for your kind words. I am grateful. JA

“Up there on your bookshelf between Tolkien and Watership Down is where this book belongs. As an anthropomorphic adventure that winds through the realm of animals possessing courage, savagery, perseverance, and ultimately wisdom in the face of mounting evil threats – humans disconnected from the natural world – the tale is relevant, if not necessary.”
