Jan Worth’s love

"Jan Worth published her great novel Nightblind herself (with iUniverse) and thank goodness she did. She worked on it for about thirty years she says in the Acknowledgements."

"In her determination to move out from under the constraints of her churchy childhood, Charlotte makes a refreshingly nonjudgmental first-person narrator. Her story is compelling and her observations are witty and perceptive...Charlotte is a celebrant of life. She wants to be happy. She’s a party girl and a jokester, trying to have fun, taking things as they come. But events beyond her control demand more from her than she may ever have intended. Whether she learns from them is unclear. She survives them. She mulls them over, and appreciates being alive. Fact or fiction or a mixture of both, this is a very readable book."

And don't miss the attached review of the book, in which Vinsel says, "Where Worth-Nelson transcends just another good, professional read is in her palpable poet's delight in the use of words." Noting the book is self-published, he adds, "The truth is, many more worthwhile and memorable novels and nonfiction now see the light of print as opposed to when staid and stuffy publishing houses published. We can be grateful for progress when it yields a first novel as impressive as this."
