Welcome to this week's News Roundup covering June 23rd to June 29th. It's been a fantastic and very busy week with The Auspicious Troubles of Chance
released the 20th of June.
As with all my other releases, I have been doing my best to keep my nervousness from taking over. This is my longest work to date, pretty much a novel--which I will write at some point! But it's also been incredibly exciting, and I'm so so thrilled when I hear about folks enjoying it. So for everyone who's left me a comment, a tweet, a like, a review: Thank You! It really means a lot to me that you all take the time to say so.
This week I've had not just one, but two
beautifully written reviews, both giving The Auspicious Troubles of Chance
4.75 out 5 stars. If you have a moment to drop by those sites, please do, not just because of the review, but just the lovely way these reviews were written.
♥ The first is from Joyfully Jay
. "Oh, this was such a good story — romantic, heartwarming, with a lovely epic feel. And once again Cochet gives us a historical that feels so rooted in the time period and allows the reader to really experience the world our characters inhabit."

♥ The second is from Camiele White over at YAM Magazine
. "Charlie Cochet’s debut effort is bold, intelligent. It’s of the caliber that bodes well for a brilliant career. From the moment the story begins, you get a precise sense of the distinctive voice of our character, and by extension the breadth of voice of the writer. Cochet’s use of language and diction makes the simple image of touch grand, audacious. Chance and Jacky’s relationship is so palpable, even the very breath between their bodies expands and reaches out to embrace the reader in its indigo hue."

♥ On Thursday, I posted the first of my Behind the Scenes
series, giving inside info, photos, and just fun little facts about what went into one of my books. June 28th showed The Amethyst Cat Caper
and you can find it here
and in my blog archive on the sidebar.
♥ All Romance eBooks
is having a Hottest Heroes contest, so if you fancy nominating Hawk or Remi (they're my only heroes eligible for the contest), I would be delighted. You can click the button on the sidebar, Contest ends July 4th. You can read all about it here
♥ You may have noticed other authors asking folks to 'like' their Amazon
page. Apparently once the author hits 50 'likes' it's supposed to help them out in some way. I'm not really sure, but I'm happy to do what I can.
So if you all have an Amazon account and would like to help me reach that 50, I'd love for you to 'like' my page
. ^__^ Maybe it'll help Chance move up from his #150,000 rank. lol. Who knows? Last time I checked I was at 27 likes. Personally, all this social media is still new to me and I forget there's all these 'likes', google+, retweet thingies, but I'm very much into spreading the love, so I promise to get better at it.
