The First Review

Well, last week the first of the ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) went out to the bloggers participating in the Release Day Blogging event.

Yes, I was a bit nervous.

This series is WAY different than the Wasteland novels.

It’s not first person male point of view. There aren’t 400 year-old demons as main characters. No ancient Guardians. . .

Violet Midnight is a vampire book!

YIKES. I said vampires!

But trust me…the vampires in this book don’t sparkle. They’re just plain…evil

Back to my point…I tend to digress when I’m nervous. LOL.

The first ARCs went out last week, and that’s when the nail-biting began. It’s scary sending out your “baby” to people to read who are outside the critique group and editors who’ve read the manuscript. What if they all hate it? What if..What if..What if..

Then I got a little twitter note from someone reading it telling me they were enjoying it. **Happy Dance**

And then…

The First Review

More nail biting ensued, and then I worked up enough courage to click into Goodreads to see what the verdict was.

Five Stars

I nearly fell over with excitement. This story has a LONG history, one I’ll share eventually, so it was just nice to see it start off with a good review.

I know the low-ratings/reviews will come, because I know I can’t write something everyone will love. But it was nice to start it off on a high note.

October 16th is coming…so stay tuned for Emma and Jake’s story.

In the mean time, you can follow Emma on Twitter and Facebook to see how her vamp-filled college life is going. And if you want a chance to win an ARC of Violet Midnight, CLICK HERE for the chance.

    • Thanks. It’s always nail biting time when it comes to reviews. The first one is the toughest, so when it turns out good, it makes it fairly tolerable. πŸ™‚ LOL

    • Thanks, SAM!!! πŸ™‚ I do love me an evil vampire. There are a few “good” ones out there…Particularly Rebecca Zanetti’s vampires in her Dark Protector series. YUM!

    • What, Alex, you’re not for the sparkling vegetarian vampires ? LOL. I loved those, but I love the evil ones just a bit more. πŸ™‚

  1. Aww…Lynn. *blushes* I’m so happy that you enjoyed my review and I’m even MORE happy that you shared Jake and Emma’s story with me. This book will explode once people get their hands on it and I can’t wait to see your success grow even more. πŸ™‚
