Five Star Review
With her (and my other daughters) encouragement I published. I've been watching it for eight months and every time there is a sale, it's a thrill. There is still a part of me who is under confident and doubtful of my skills. I think I need that doubt to make sure I'm writing to the standard I expect.
Yesterday I received a surprise in my email. I sent a copy of Secret Past to several web sites for reviews. I got one yesterday. As soon as I saw it in my email, I prepared myself for a horrible review. I don't know what I expected the person to say but I never expected a five star review.
I love Dee and Nick. They were my first full length characters. My first foray into developing someone's personality, reactions, and life. Their story became a large part of my life. The first time I had to cut scenes from the book, I felt like I was ripping apart their lives.
Yes, for all the therapists out there, I know they are characters. I know they are figments of my imagination. I also know how much they mean to me. I never expected them to mean so much to others.
Go check out the review.
Secret Past is available as an ebook and a paperback. You can purchase it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, and a lot of other places.
