December, 2019: Collecting some great reviews on Three Wells of the Sea: "I'm a sucker for a good portal-crossing adventure, so I tend to forgive a lot of flaws, but in this case I didn't have to. I'm blown away by Madden's brilliant writing. The details in the two worlds are so rich and convincing it's almost like reading history -- though highly entertaining at the same time! Her characters are many-layered and relatable, and their challenges are truly of mythic proportions. It's been a while since I dove immediately from the first book in a series to the next, but I'm already deep into 'The Salamander's Smile' and already looking forward to the third."

Some recent Amazon reviews of Writers of the Future vol. 30:
"Without doubt this is the strongest volume in the series to date."
"The story [Animal] is poignant and hits home."
"The very competitive superstars of sci-fi & fantasy writers return once again."
"In “Animal” by Terry Madden, you’ll find a dystopian future where humanity has pushed all wildlife into human controlled preserves underground, where a child is so valuable that a would be mother will risk everything to have one."
