The Book Review That Makes Me Want to Write Forever

Even though I am well aware that everything isn’t for everyone, it still stings a bit to get a negative review for something you’ve written. And not just written, but created and nurtured. Over time, I’ve learned to react to them appropriately: reflect on what points were made that could make my writing better, remember that everyone won’t like what I write and that’s okay, and then keep it moving. It helps when the majority of your reviews are positive. You feel like you’re connecting with the right audience. So, now I let the 1 or 2-star reviews get me down for about fifteen minutes, and then I brush it off and carry on.

Today, I was in Goodreads updating my shelves (Add me! I like connecting with readers there.) when I noticed that Roommate Wanted (Sharing Space #1) had new text reviews. The most recent one was left about two weeks ago and it made me laugh so hard, I had to share. It’s in Spanish, so I used Google Translate to post it here. The words, and pictures, are all from user Sitahiri, my new favorite reader:

 

I loved it!

Nina, thanks for introducing me to my new book boyfriend: Patrick Murphy. 🙂

 

Patrick Murphy Sharing Space

 

A light reading , a refreshing change …

A simple and uncomplicated plot, but do not misunderstand me, it is exactly this simplicity and the way it flows naturally what makes a great story.

A story with funny scenes and characters with common problems that we all can have.

Chloe talks to her friend and herself, her reaction when she meets Patrick, her conversations with him, it had me laughing most of the time.

In this first part we mostly get to know some of the characters and their families.

Chloe is a fun girl who fights for what she wants, he does not care much preconceived standards of others with respect to race and who is not afraid to speak her mind (well, as long as it is not her mother. With her she uses more finesse and avoids conflicts.)

Then there is Patrick, aspiring actor, but with his feet on the ground. Since we know that is not so easy to get a chance in that environment and has the financial backing of full-time work in what is given his big break. Focused, fun, polite and with a smile dimpled votios 1000 included in the package.

In short, say that the story that unfolds in this first part of the series is like a good meal, no seasoning surpasses others, but that all comes together to form a delicious taste that leaves you with a good taste in mouth satisfied and wanting more.

And…

I highly recommend! So come on, give in to the temptation to give it a try to this amusing story.

Sweet, right? And how hot is their vision of Patrick? I approve!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must get back to writing.

Slow Burn Is Available Early!

Because my editor is a machine – a fabulous machine with a gorgeous smile and beautiful hair – Slow Burn, book three in the Sharing Space series, is available now! That’s right. You can get your hands on the next installment in the Chloe and Patrick love story a full two weeks early!

Book four is scheduled for a pre-Thanksgiving release and will most likely be early as well, but that’s not set in stone.


Here’s what you can expect in Slow Burn, part three of this six-part romance novel:

Finally admitting what they share is more than just friendship, Chloe and Patrick begin to explore a romantic relationship.

As Patrick watches his childhood friendships crumble, Chloe’s arms prove to be his one place for comfort. Chloe struggles with her reasons for taking the romance slow. Does she have doubts about Patrick or is she still affected by her ex’s betrayal?

One thing is for sure: Taking it slow may give their new love the best chance at lasting, but ignoring their passion is easier said than done.


Book four in the Sharing Space series will be available just in time for Thanksgiving.

Sharing Space Book Three ‘Slow Burn’ Coming Soon

Hey guys!

Before I get to all the good stuff and praise, I wanted to address a question I received on Facebook and in an Amazon review:

Every three weeks I’m releasing another book in the Sharing Space series. The series is currently expected to be six books in total. At .99 cents per book, that’s a full-size contemporary romance novel for $5.94 – $4.95 if you took advantage of the free promotion for book one. If, for some reason, the series ends up being seven books, I will release book seven for free. I don’t see that happening as the story is complete, but I am working with an amazing editor who really understands pacing in storytelling. She may suggest splitting the final book. Either way, my promise to you is that you will get the full Chloe and Patrick story for no more than $5.94.

Now, praise time! Thank you guys so much for purchasing the books so far, leaving Amazon and Goodreads reviews, and engaging on my Facebook page. It has truly meant a lot. If you’ve not yet had a chance to leave a review, please do so. It really helps indie authors expand their audience.

Finally, have a look at the cover for book three, Slow Burn.
