First review for DOUBLE DARE

One of the hardest parts of being a writer is when the book is ready to go out and you're waiting for the reviewer's responses. Two months to the publication date, so I'm at that stage now and it’s nerve wracking, to say the least! Overall I've been very lucky with reviews for my novellas and short stories, but with DOUBLE DARE being my first single title print novel, I'm on tenterhooks!

This morning I got my first review, and a deeply held breath was exhaled (well, one of them ;-) Here's what the reviewer had to say:

Outstandingly sexy and superb, this red-hot romance is a fast-paced tale that will leave your head spinning. Romance and intrigue are the bases for this story, with exceptional characters and some interesting secondary characters that will amuse and entertain you. A witty dialogue and some sizzling sex scenes are woven in, tying this all up together for one magnificent read.

Made my day, I have to say! In other news, I bunked off early yesterday and we went out on the town. Enjoyed one of my favorite ciders, THATCHERS, in a real ale pub and a gorgeous chili garlic palak curry to end with. Feeling a bit refreshed and renewed now, much needed. More blogging later – some thoughts on short stories I’ve been mulling over.

Awesome! I predict this will be the first of many, many glittering reviews for DOUBLE DARE! I can't wait to read it... :)

Feeling chuffed myself today, feedbackwise, as have heard [second hand] that one of my books is being discussed in glowing terms on a certain mailing list...

We're *both* literary geniuses! LOL
