Getting Fresh


Good stuff happening! Wednesday was nice. I hadn't really been getting reviews and so was feeling reasonably paranoid, but On Wednesday I got notification (Google alerts) that The Begonia Bribe had been mentioned and I went and found THIS terrific 5 apple review from Debbie's Book Bag. It made me a little teary it was so nice... she said my characters jump off the page and she'd like to be friends with them!!! (there is a giveaway, too, if you want to try to win it!)

I went to see if the review was on Amazon. It wasn't, but in addition to the 3 star review (which I appreciate, but sat there all alone for a few weeks) there was a 5-star one from blogger buddy Mason Canyon.  It was definitely encouraging!

And then this month, I am featured at Sharon's Cozy Corner, So Fresh Fiction invited me to do a guest spot... I've written it on Writer's Brain...


I wish all of you a FABULOUS long weekend, with a mix of remembering and honoring lost loved ones and time having fun with your friends and family. I just wish the nice weather would come back.

Glad you have a five star review from Mason and Debbie now!
Have an awesome weekend, Hart.

Sorry, couldn't leave a comment at the Cozy Corner since I'm not registered. (Really odd when blogs are set up that way.) Agree that we get spoiled being able to edit or think about what we are going to write. It does slow down real life conversations.

I'm sure there are many more positive reviews to come! I know what you mean though, when that page looks pretty dang empty.

Congratulations on those excellent reviews! Enjoy your weekend as well. :)

Congrats, Hart! I'll admit, I still look for new reviews but I really try to stay away from all that these days. It's distracting and adds to the roller coaster feelings of life. :)

A five star review? Awesome! Hope you have an equally awesome weekend.

Congrats on the good reviews! I can't wait to start reading it. Just that life is a bit nuts right now...for example, I have 6 teenage boys in my house right now. They all spent the night. Then they made chocolate chip pancakes and since I was on the phone with tech support for two hours and 15 minutes, I made the ridiculous promise that I would clean up if they'd just make their own breakfast. (We have this tradition that on sleepover mornings I make fabulous breakfast...never should have started that...)

Congrats on the good reviews.

Sounds like a great review, Hart! Mine take a while to trickle in, too.

A great review is the perfect way to kick off a long weekend!

I'm off to read your reviews now, and I can tell you that I'm enjoying Begonia so much you'll get a sterling one from me. And don't worry about the quiet start for your book: with the Internet we're so used to everything happening NOW and getting feedback so fast that real life just can't catch up with it.

Have a wonderful weekend.
