Reviews

I’m excited, can you tell? I sure everyone can hear me screaming with joy from where ever you are! lol

My anthology has received two reviews. Both were positive, but it is my second review that has me jumping like a kid who just got some chocolate. My second review was from Cocktail Reviews.

For those of you who don’t know, Cocktail Reviews rates reviews by drinks. One flute of Champagne for not good and five flutes for wonderful. If they really like it and consider it “stellar” or better you get a whole bottle of Champagne. Guess what the One Touch, One Glace Anthology received. Just guess. Now, no peeking! lol

Here is the link to the whole review: http://cocktailreviews.wordpress.com/2008/11/24/one-touch-one-glance-freyas-bower/

Ok...you can peek! We got a WHOLE BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE!

Now can you tell why I’m on cloud nine!?

As exciting as it is to see the whole anthology doing well, there is always the feeling of, well…what did they think about mine? Luckily for me, Nutty Nana from Cocktail Reviews took the time to say just a little something about each story. Here is what she had to say about mine:

Forever Guy by Jambrea Jo Jones
Sheriff Samantha Reynolds has a lot on her plate and mind, ensuring that the town of Port is free from crime. So, after being covered in mud after being knocked down by a pig (LOL), she is shocked to find that her brother’s best friend, Jack, has arrived back in town. She’s had a crush on him for years. Has she got a chance with him now he’s back, or will she have to forever hold her feelings inside?
An enjoyable tale in many respects, especially the pig image.

You don’t know how tickled I am that she liked the pig scene. This is one that I included after I finished my story to add a little more oomph and to see it being pointed out just makes me happy to have such wonderful critique partners and beta readers! Without them and my editor I wouldn’t be here!

I always try for a little humor when I write because it is something that I love to read and it is great to know that I was able to add a touch that made someone laugh out loud.

Thank you Nutty Nana and Cocktail Reviews!

I just wanted to say that it is hard for me to believe that a year and a half ago I wasn’t even thinking of writing again. And for this to be happening now, it makes me happy that I picked up the proverbial pen and started putting the crazy people in my head on the computer.
