Slow Ride Home by Leah BraemelAs an author I’m torn about posting reviews on my blog. I’ve had people tell me it’s self-serving and smacks of egotism. But when Lea of USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog writes a post recommending my book, I’m sorry, I’m shouting it from the rooftops.

Go over to USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog to read the full review, but the short version of Lea Franczak’s review is:

Slow Ride Home kept me enthralled. I became completely invested in Ben and Allie’s story”

And while I’m at it, I’ll get them all out at once.

    I see nothing wrong with celebrating with others when they feel as happy and moved with something you wrote. You deserve this and more!! Much love to you 🙂

    There’s nothing wrong with posting reviews. (but perhaps being selective is wise if you have dozens of them)
    The point of an author website IMO is self promotion. So that people can discover your work, feel drawn in enough to read and then enjoy like so many others. Spamming inboxes, fb pms and Twitter is a whole different issue.

    Also hurrah!!! Amazing Leah. You deserve it.
