The literary reviewer, H. M. Garber of goth e-zine Gothic Angst, has published a review of Volume One from Mill Avenue Vexations. People should trot on over there and check it out.
"Mill Avenue: Vexations" is the first volume in an online series by Kyt Dotson. With a new take on mysticism that combines music with magic, Kyt has created something refreshing and new. Her characters seem as familiar as old friends. Her descriptions are swift and clean, letting her character's actions fill the reader's imagination. Her dialogue is neither stiff nor fake, and the writing is intriguing and fresh.
But she doesn't write about unicorns and sunshine. A mysterious darkness has destroyed an Arizona college town, and probably the world beyond. Vex Harrow is a tough taxi driver in this town, a woman with mysterious abilities yet to be fully explained. She receives a vision of four college students, and may be the one person in town who can banish the darkness and evil back wherever it came from.
Be sure to leave a comment. Let them know that you’re visiting, read a few articles, the webzine also sports some excellent literature in its own right.

I want to be the first person to own your entire collection. And I don't want it for free either. So put me in line for it and keep me posted Kyt please.
You have an unusual talent for the torque on a phrase.
Your characters not only leap off the page, they slink around the inky parts.
There's a tension that's always developing somewhere that we can't quite catch on to and the attitude of your heros and heroins always veers from the blase` into the conflicted, strange, subtle, vulnerable, angry, goth stubborness that's refreshing to this old conspiracy theorist.
