Inside my world of a Book Review

As writers, one of the most incredible things that happen in the world of publishing is to get a review on your book that takes your breath away. And it happened to me this week! Two nights ago, I opened my email to find that Long and Short Reviews reviewed "A Daughter's Promise". After reading the review, I couldn't sleep that night. Getting a book contract felt like winning an Academy Award, so I would equate the feeling of getting a great review to being inducted into the Hall of Fame somewhere! Thanks so much LASR for reviewing my work! Click here if you'd like to read the review.

Hi Christine,

The feeling of receiving your first book contract never goes away:)

I read your excerpt, very touching and I have a feeling your book is going to be an emotion pull that brings tears to the eyes. Also watched your book trailer. Did you do that yourself? That's one thing I haven't been able to master.

Hi Tory,

Thank you! I'm so happy you liked the excerpt. It was an emotional story to write, and I learned so much about the time period and honor between people.

Glad you liked the trailer. I created with with Windows Movie Maker and my brother-in-law (a musician) wrote the music. The program isn't too hard and I think they have a great tutorial on it.. Also I used stock photos. Good luck!

Thanks so much for stopping by! And congrats on your writing too!
