Praise for Touch


“I didn’t have any expectations, no idea what this was about, so going into this read I was quickly delighted by the concept as I connected the correlations. I feel this is going to make a very nice one act play. (Or Opera! What!) I have sat thru many not so great one-acts- {phew! to many to recall}- I cant wait to see this one day. The story leaves a lot of potential for creative vision of what this authors world would be like, but with a solid story line to follow. Two thumbs up.”


“Briana describes an amazing concept in such a short play. The concept of living in a society where touch is illegal and the people have never experienced touch before is incredibly unique and original. I am a fan of Briana’s work, as I’ve purchased and read her debut novel BLOOD AND WATER. TOUCH is yet another original success I hope other readers consider buying to support this young, amazing, talented indie author!”
