Local Phoenix newspaper, the Phoenix New Times, picked up a short story about Mill Avenue Vexations in their blog written by Niki D'Andrea.

Mill Avenue Vexations is an ongoing literary project of Kyt Dotson, a former anthropology major at ASU who hangs out on the busy Tempe strip every weekend. The novel revolves around the character of Vex Harrow, a goth hottie who drives a cab for a living. Many of the stories revolve around Vex's fares, friends, and family conflicts, and include details of familiar Mill hangouts like the Graffiti Shop and the Coffee Plantation.

[…]

The writing inside the volumes of Mill Avenue Vexations is intricate, filled with character details like "James had slicked back his hair and wore a fishnet shirt that showed off his every individual flexing muscle" (from "Lost Sphinx Cat") and descriptions such as "They sparred in guarded pantomime" (from "All the Night's a Stage").

Short, but sweet, and it has some of the cover artwork on display for readers. It’s only driven about seventeen hits so far from their site, but whatever, exposure is exposure. The writing is clear and extremely positive. I am glad that Niki enjoyed her reading! She picked the second quote especially well (seeing as how that’s how my father and I get along.)

Take a gander, via Phoenix New Times blog.
