More Book Love

huckleDoesn’t this picture make you salivate? It does me.  And it goes right along with my new book, Game Changer. Huckleberry ice cream plays a huge part in Meridee’s and Parker’s friendship-turning-into-more relationship. Ice cream usually does help any romance along, at least in my opinion. And this one, from Ferdinand’s Ice Cream Shop in Pullman, Washington, looks especially divine. My cookie/ice cream/chocolate monster appears, and I say: ME WANT SOME!!!

The book monster inside me has been especially happy as well with all the kind reviews being left about Game Changer. If you haven’t written a book before, you might not get an author’s fascination over reviews. But let me tell you. We crave them. Like Cookie Monster craves cookies. Like I know you’re craving that huckleberry ice cream. Continue reading

Sweet Reviews

5-1012 (2)Thanks to everyone who has bought and read Game Changer since its release. And especially thank you to those who have reviewed it as well.

Leaving a review on a book you read and like is one of the best things you can do to help an author spread the word about their book and whether it’s worth reading. I know my husband is the kind of reader who goes to Amazon and looks only at books that have a certain number of reviews. So when a book sits there with only 10 or so reviews, even if it’s the most amazing book ever written, most readers won’t give it a chance. Reviews are the lifeblood of authors’ success or doom.

Here are some snippets from some 5 Star reviews that have made me smile.

…The reader will enjoy getting to know these two college students. Both have more depth than they first appear to, and both are wrestling with personal demons. The writing is sharp and the scenes fluid. Though not my typical genre, Game Changer added some sweetness to my normally dark salty fare. A little lightness is always welcome. “(Carrie, Amazon reader)
