A third Amazon review :)

This writing life is so uncertain, you learn to treasure every glimmer of light that comes your way. My ray today came from Café Au Lait's third review on Amazon. It was added June 17 but I didn't see it until tonight. The reader got the book in a library and is actually considering buying it. Here are some tidbits that have me smiling into the screen right now:

"Wasn't a 'romance' reader until this book!"
"a book that transcends the genre"
"plot is well-thought out"
"kept me intrigued the ENTIRE time"
"love the characters"

Thank you, reader, whoever you are. Now where did I put those happy-dance shoes? Never mind - I'll dance without!

I'm glad you're getting the recognition you deserve. I also loved the book, as you know.

JJ Beattie said...

How very exciting. Congratulations.

I love the green nose on the happy dancing rabbit! Where can I get one?

I agree with everything in the review and to simply say Cafe au Lait is a romance novel is to sell it short.

What's the countdown about?

Liane Spicer said...

Debs, thank you. Looking forward to yours next. :)

JJ, merci. I'm not sure where you can get the green nose, but the place that sold the red ones might be a good place to start. :)

akalol, I thought no one would ask! It's a group blog created by a few terrific authors I know. Your VIP invitation to the launch is in the mail! :D

Cool! What should I wear :)

Liane Spicer said...

akalol, semi-formal, swim trunk in car for Las Cuevas beach lime after!

akalol said...

Las Cuevas. I should have known :)

Debi said...

Hope that reader beecomes just one of many thousands but that you carry on appreciating each single one. x

awww! Nice. I agree with the reviewer too.

Liane Spicer said...

akalol, but of course Las Cuevas! ;)

Debi, thanks for the good karma! I can't imagine getting blase about total strangers liking my work enough to take the trouble to write a review about it.

Kim, you do know how to put a smile on my face, don't you!
