This week’s song, Within Temptation by Sinead, is brought to you by Krystal, who recommended it as a good match for A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS after watching the trailer a couple of weeks ago.
Also, have to say that the release of a new book is always stressful. In the old days, you were lucky (or not) to read a couple of professional reviews. Now, authors are subject to reviews from every corner of the globe 24/7. This can be good. And it can suck hard. It’s totally part of the gig, and I get that, but that doesn’t mean the tough ones don’t hurt.
So far this week I’ve been fortunate to have three stellar reviews for A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS from three reviewers I’ve long admired.
The first is from Bookalicio.us, who calls TEMPTATION, “… breathtakingly written.” She also told me on Twitter that she liked it MORE THAN CAKE. So, yanno, it doesn’t get much better than that.
I almost squealed out loud when I saw the review from Fiktshun, mostly because is having someone say, “This story was so utterly enchanting from start to finish that I did devour it in just one sitting” isn’t cause for squealing, I don’t know what is.
And then there’s The Viet Babe’s Blog review, who called TEMPTATION, “So engrossing and excellent, I couldn’t put it down.” Music to my ears!
So to these three bloggers and to all of you out there who spread the word about my work through your reviews, THANK YOU! Many of you are every bit as professional as someone who’s paid to write reviews for a living. I feel more fortunate than you know to count you among my supporters.
And now, go forth and enjoy music!
