Well, reviews are beginning to trickle in for my new book, Something Blue, and I'm tickled pink to see that readers are really enjoying it. I think it's fabulous, but I'm a bit biased. If you read Something Blue -- or any of my books -- and enjoy it, please take a moment and post a review on Amazon or Goodreads or your personal blog or on a bathroom wall somewhere or anywhere at all. We poor, pitiful writers lock ourselves away from the world and labor all alone, sweating every word and punctuation mark, all in hopes of telling you a good story, so if you could return a little love, I would appreciate it sooooooooo much. And besides, you'll make my mother happy.
But here are a few reviews so far, and I didn't even have to pay any of these wonderful readers to say these nice things!
GREAT BEACH READ by Angie Q:
"This is the sort of book I enjoy when my brain decides to take a day off. Loved, Loved, Loved this book.The characters are recognizably Southern in every way and in all the various quirks. It was laugh-out-loud funny in parts and sweet and touching in others. It caught the essence of the crazy roller coaster in the week preceding a Southern wedding and dealing with all the crazy, neurotic, infuriating relatives (especially mothers and sisters) that you love."
COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN by T Wright:
"Best book I've read in ages! The characters are loveable, down to earth. I read this book out loud to my husband because he kept asking what was so funny. Someone should take notice and make a movie. YES! It was that good!"
A TOUCHING, LAUGH-OUT-LOUD STORY by aacaboo:
Lots of characters, a great mix of people & real life, "Happenings". I'm from a big Albanian Family & the before's and after's ....rehearsal, etc...could have been written about my family. A good laugh-out-loud book, great story line. Highly recommend it.
EASY READ by Susan Hastie:
"This book was one that you didn't want to put down. The characters were very colorful and about as disfunctional as they could get. I found this book to be quite funny in parts. Thoroughly enjoyed it."
FUN READ by Bobbie Largent:
"I really enjoyed reading this book. Had a hard time putting it down once I started reading it. Loved the characters."
GREAT CHARACTERS AND A STORY THAT WILL KEEP YOU MORE THAN ENTERTAINED by Christeymg:
"As a Southerner I saw people I know and people I'm related to in this story. Funny, sassy and smart. I understand the comparison to Steel Magnolias (which I love) but this is a story all to itself. Grab a copy and get ready for a truly enjoyable escape. Great summer beach read!"
DELIGHTFUL by Ann Lindell:
"You'll recognize the many Southern female archetypes in this tale of the preparations for a small town wedding. The smart, sassy characters and hilarious dialog will have you laughing out loud! Highly recommended."
I LOVE THE WEB
Because nobody can interrupt me; they can only de-friend me.
