**'Ideas are ephemeral things that emerge from a complex alchemy of experience and you as a writer cannot force them into existence when they aren't ready...The process is discovering by revision or uncovering by persistence..'

One of the hallmarks of the LGBT genre is worldbuilding. Few authors try to create new books or storylines complete with a variance of topics,geography,the era of history,morals and languages - and then set these same stories right there. Others also try to create books about foreign places or locations that seems very similar to the world in which we live or know of, imbuing with a lifeless feel.
In LEVITATE,a book filled with an interesting plotline of suspense,intrigue and has many confusing parts but is still readable -- here I think Mr.Cannon tries to merge a mundane storyline with a realistic one.
LEVITATE do comes off clearly as a prologue to whatever full story Mr.Cannon is trying to tell because there are more question posed than answered in its pages. Involved are three strong female leads being pulled into the vortex of some undercover spy ring but during the storyline readers will be skittish on the whole reason for which they were chosen to do so which remains a bit of mystery. It's a strange and dark book -- sometimes full of fast-paced action,at other times slowed down group interaction and attention to detail. The moody writing verges on stream of awareness as every characters' thoughts and actions do spring up then disappear under new ones while they panic or try to puzzle out what was happening.
In the end, few readers are tasked with trying to determine if the title of this book has any meaning towards this storyline or if anything coincide.

HBalikov Hoping that Cannon provides a lot of location-related details, Diane

He did but not as detailed as you might assume...
