Love an Author, Leave a Review

Authors love readers who love their books. We're not sure readers understand the importance of their opinions on our books. Letting other readers know about the great books you've read and enjoyed is the best advertisement an author can get!

Here are a few readers we love and snippets of the reviews they've left for our novels.

Krista P.  said, "I am always on the hunt for good, easy "chick lit" and Romantically Challenged definitely delivered," about Beth Orsoff's Romantically Challenged.

Shari enjoyed S.L. Baum's My Link in Time so much she said, "The only other thing left to say is I wanted more more more. It was over way to fast!!!! Thank you S.L. Baum for another great read!"

Blondie said, "I was looking for something funny and No Lady and Her Tramp did not disappoint," about Kristie Leigh Maguire's No Lady and Her Tramp.

"This book is perfect for readers who enjoy paranormal stories with a twisty-turny plot, a mystery or two that need to be solved, characters that aren't always to be trusted, enemies with hidden agendas and action that's quick to devolve into chaos," was what Fiktshun had to say about Initiation by Imogen Rose.

FL Beachbum said, "I especially loved the drama & suspense leading up to the ending - it was just great. Thanks for a great read - one that makes you appreciate everyday things that we so often take for granted," about M.P. McDonald's The Mark Taylor Series - Books One and Two.

So if you've read a good book lately, leave the author a great review. It'll make you feel good, it will make the author happy, and it just might make another reader try a new book. As we see it, that's a win-win-win!

Spotlight on S.L. Baum

S.L. Baum is the author of The Immortal Ones, a Young Adult Paranormal series.

To quote from her blog:
"I have had a love of sci-fi since I was a kid... watching Star Trek with my father. I am such a junky for action packed sci-fi movies to this day... thanks Dad! That love started to include the supernatural/paranormal as I reached my teens. I will always thank Anne Rice and Lestat for introducing me to a whole new genre... and my love vampire fiction was born. When I began writing, I didn't consider the YA paranormal genre. I started two previous projects that I couldn't finish, and I never knew why. But, when I started to write - A Chance for Charity (The Immortal Ones) - the story poured out of me and I loved every minute of the writing process! I still have those other stories, and someday I plan to go back and finish them."

A Chance for Charity, My Link in Time, and Of Fire and Brimstone are available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, iTunes for iBooks, and Smashwords.

Along with writing... cooking, crafting, and music are her other loves. She shares those passions with her three children (who all write stories, bake sweet treats, create all sorts of things, and play instruments).

Visit her blog, My Write Road, for more information on her and her available titles.

Spotlight on Imogen Rose

Imogen Rose is the author of the bestselling YA series, the Portal Chronicles. She was born in a small town in Sweden and moved to London in her twenties. After obtaining a PhD in immunology from Imperial College, she moved with her family to New Jersey, where she's been based for the past ten years.

For as long as she can remember, Imogen has dreamt stories. Stories that continued from night to night, from dream to dream. So, even as a child, going to bed was never an issue, just an anticipation of the story to come.

PORTAL, Imogen's first novel, would have remained in her imagination, to be shared only with her daughter, Lauren, had her eight-year-old not insisted that she write it down. In the course of a month, Imogen typed while Lauren waited eagerly by the printer for the pages to appear, and a novel took shape.

The warm reception PORTAL received encouraged her to continue with the story and the Portal Chronicles. Faustine is Imogen's first book in her new series, the Bonfire Chronicles. She has recently published INITIATION, the prequel to FAUSTINE.
Imogen is a self-confessed Herm├Ęs addict who enjoys shopping, traveling, watching movies and playing with her dog, Tallulah.

Find Imogen on Amazon US, Amazon UK, and Barnes & Noble.
