Come times when you need to toot your own horn. Why not? Sometimes no one else can do it better. Like when you’re getting all these good reviews (for Welcome Reluctant Stranger) and you feel you must share all that heady stuff.
The best part is these comments come from readers like you and me. Oh, professional reviewers have their place, but to touch anyone deeply who reads for pleasure gives me, as an author, the utmost satisfaction.
Here’s a sampling I culled from opinions of Amazon readers, most of whom received copies of the book in exchange for honest reviews:
“…reading EJourney (the moniker under which she writes) is like dining in a fine restaurant: the words are placed on the page in a seductive way, assuring that interest in the characters and their development progresses with such urgency that pausing between chapters seems almost a crime.”—Grady Harp, Top 100 Amazon reviewer
“Coming from a romance expert, this was one of the sweetest love stories I’ve read in a good while. I’m not gonna lie, it is predictable in some places (as almost every love story written is), but it takes a truly talented author to incorporate personal style that can break those stereotypes and keep the reader feeding off of originality. I felt that here..”—Dannie Moffitt
“”Welcome Reluctant Stranger” is one of the best books I have read in quite a while! E. Journey has done an amazing job of engaging the reader and keeping the attention throughout the entire book.”—Michelle McCormick
“Great vocabulary and descriptive language made the book a joy to read. Overall, this is one of the best romance books I’ve read in quite some time.”―Emily Lane, Amazon Reviewer
” … an emotional and deep romance novel. … … I thought that this book dealt with the difficult emotions and issues that both characters faced really thoughtfully and made it a really great read.” ―KM Harris
A sampling of other remarks:
” …a heartfelt novel with a beautiful love story.”
“I absolutely loved this book. It was very well written and sucked me right in.”
” … we, the audience, come away with such depth in a character.”
” This is one of the best reads I have had in a while; I was captivated by the entire story and looked forward to the next chance I got to pick up where I left off.”
“The book flowed very well and was a fast read. I could hardly put the book down because there was so much awaiting among the next pages. There were twists that I even did not foresee.”
No, not everybody liked what I produced. That’s fine. I just want to find and engage that small niche I can communicate with. And I hope these comments speak to you out there.
