The best note from a reader, and a few lesser reviews



I've gotten several reviews lately, ones I'll share in a moment, but by far the best review came in the form of a reader from Montreal, Canada, who has already finished her copy of A Taste of Victory. I asked her if I could share her comments and she graciously said, 'yes'.


I wanted to say that I finished your book. It was so nice to see all three stories together. I'd already read one, but it was nice to get acquainted with Micah and Jonas, and then Levi and Stacy. That Levi, what a firecracker LOL! I enjoyed your book tremendously. The sex is hot, yes, but the stories are interesting and filled with such hope. After reading these, you get a sense that anything is possible. Thank you so much!

Praise from a reader is what matters most. Thank you, Roxanne.

For some other reviews:

Shining Victory
I was a little surprised Romance Junkies reviewed one of my stories. I hope it's a good trend. They're a wee bit PG13 on their list, and considering Shining Victory is a love story about two men.... you get the picture.

Passion's Victory
"The compassion and care just flows from the pages. I really enjoyed Passion's Victory, it touched my emotions on so many levels." - Ley, reviewer, Joyfully Reviewed

Passion's Victory was a Romance Studio 2008 CAPA nominee, and while it didn't get the nod, it shows the strength of the story, and I was very pleased with the honor.

Surrendered Victory
"Surrenered Victory is a great story and a terrific beginning to what could be a very loving relationship." Ley, reviewer, Joyfully Reviewed

Well, Ley, could be a sequel coming for Dalton and Reed some day.

I used to think writing would be an easy job, one I could do in my pajamas. Do I still think that? Heck no. Writing is tough.

Do I still want to work in my pajamas, full time?
Absolutely. Writing is the best job in the world.

So what's my point this cold, damp night? I have no point. What I have is another completed edit. Give Me One Night is through the first round edits and moving on to the galley stage. AND .... drum roll...... I finished the manuscript for the pax/theme in June.

AND NOT ONLY THAT!!! I banged out the first two chapters on a new story.

So yes, I'm having a bit of a moment tonight, and I'm enjoying it. But it better be over by tomorrow night because I have another 2000 words to write then.
