Lancaster House AMAZING Review!

Okay, I admit, I was feeling pretty down in the dumps last weekend.  My books have not exactly been flying off the shelves. I think I finally faced reality: I'm probably not going to make much money selling books.


My thoughts were all over the place: Guess I could go down to the local Wal-Mart and apply. Perhaps, Burger King? I imagined myself saying, 'would you like fries with that?' My husband and I even discussed joining some ridiculous pyramid scheme to earn a little extra cash. Ugh! No wonder I was depressed. (Not that our finances are bad, I'd just like to pay off our children's college debts sooner than later!)

I LOVE writing books. It's my passion. It's what I want to DO. And you know, making money is not the only thing involved in this process. I put so much of ME in my books. It's like pouring out your heart and soul for all to see. Books not selling is not just business to me, it's personal. Highly personal.

My husband reminded me that my books have only been out for not-even-a month. And I've only just barely begun to advertise.

Oh, yeah.

But then, an amazing thing happened. I received my first real book review. (I mean, not from a family member or friend) I was petrified it was going to be horrible. Surely, they'd see right through me and know I'm not really a writer. They'd know I'm just pretending to be a writer. Just a stay-at-home Mom with an overactive imagination--and she just happened to write it all down in her spare time.

Instead, I got an AMAZING review of Lancaster House. My hands were shaking, I cried, I screamed, and I jumped up and down like a kid.

Thanks, Book Liaison, for being willing to take a chance on a self-published author!

  Wow! What an intense and refreshing book! It pulled me in form the very first page!It has everything from suspense to mystery and yes, of course, romance! This book kept me on edge by keeping me guessing to the very end! Lancaster House is not your same ole paranormal romance that we all have come to know and expect! Oh no! There was no way I could have guessed all the twists and turns that are held in this book! It left me surprised and very satisfied with the the whole story! I guarantee you have never read any other book that is remotely like this one (well at least I sure haven't and I have read a lot of books!)
I really didn't know what I expected before I read it but once I started it, I literally could not put it down until I was at the very last page! I would definitely recommend this book as a must read! And I cannot wait until I get to read the second one in the series!

Suddenly I realized, maybe I will sell a few books. Maybe my dreams are not so far out of reach as I had originally thought. Maybe . . .

Ah, dreams.
