Another 5 star review!

After a bit of quiet since its release, I received an amazing review for Book 2 in the Suckers Trilogy! Here it is:

5StarReview.png

I was initially pulled in by the title of this book, “Raising A Vampire.” I’d also read a glowing review of the first book in the trilogy. I decided to check out book two. I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, the storyline, character development, and constant twists and turns held my attention to the end.

I found the traumatic situations that Kate and her family encountered were presented in a way that was entirely realistic. I appreciated Kate’s relationship with her special daughter who is a “sucker.” Her interaction with her child comes from a place of respect and as much wisdom as Kate can muster. Her daughter’s reactions are also genuine and described in a way that was perfect for a child who embodies a very intense physical and emotional makeup.

There are many dilemmas in the story that Kate has to face. One major quandary is choosing between two men. As both men vie for Kate’s love, I felt her turmoil. The situation was very difficult because each man was unique and compelling in his own way. Kate’s emotional confusion and responses are portrayed in ways that are poignant and at times, heart-wrenching.

This is a well-written book that I found very difficult to put down. I was happy that there were resolutions to many of the issues raised in the book. However, after becoming invested in the lives of Kate and her family, I was left with a desire to plunge into book three, the final installment in the trilogy.

Thank you so much, Sandy! You made my day! Love you to bits for taking the time to read and write such a wonderful review on top!

10 Reviews for Succedaneum – Living Like A Vampire on Amazon.com!

Hooray! I have ten reviews for my first book, Succedaneum – Living Like A Vampire, on Amazon.com! Slowly but surely we’re getting there. I also have three on Amazon.au, three on Amazon.co.uk and two on Amazon.nl., so I have eighteen in total. A bit to go yet before I can get on a promotional website, but it’s only been five months since it was released.

Most reviews are for four or five stars, which is a great boost as I was wondering whether I should write at all. But people seem to like what I have written. I only have one three-star review, which was a very honest review telling me I still have a long way to go to become a good writer (hey, I’m still wearing writer diapers here!). I also received a one star review, which appears to be a mistake as the person in question mentioned that they downloaded the sequel and wanted to read more in the series. It gave me a bit of a freight when I saw it first as it did take my overall rating in the UK down to three stars, but if people read the review they will realise what happened.

Mind you, I have only sold thirteen books. The most recent reviews were given by other authors after I gave them an ARC. It is great to get reviews from other authors as it gives you an idea of where you’re at. They could have said it was rubbish. But they didn’t. Phew!

If you haven’t read my book yet, you can get it by clicking on the top image of it in the left sidebar. It’s very entertaining, a good six hours read, and well worth the (little amount of) money! And tomorrow the price will go up, so get your copy now!

As I have promised so many other authors to read their books and give my honest opinion (I’ll be reading well into the new year by now) I can’t accept all requests. So I promised one author to put the blurb of his book on my blog, so here it is:

The Man Upstairs

– by Mark Fowler –

Frank Miller, hero of the best-selling mystery novels written by The Man Upstairs, works the weird streets of Chapeltown as a private detective. During the legendary case of the Black Widow everything changed when Frank became aware of his fictional existence. Proclaimed at the time as a work of genius, Frank wonders if it was the first sign that The Man Upstairs was sick.

This latest case, involving the death of a care worker, and coinciding with the appointment of Chapeltown’s first elected mayor, has Frank baffled. The Man Upstairs appears to be losing the plot, giving the womanising Frank a steady girlfriend, Marge, who warns him that to survive he must change from the tired cliché that he has become.

As the case darkens Frank recognises the depth of his creator’s sickness. His days are numbered as clearly as the pages in the books in which he features. The looming battle with the Mayor of Chapeltown is nothing less than the battle to save himself, Marge, the series – and the mind of The Man Upstairs.

The Man Upstairs is plotting to kill Frank Miller and take Chapeltown to hell.
