I had some amazing reviews in the last two weeks, many of which I wasn't expecting at all, which is always a double treat.
♥ The Novel Approach reviewed not just one of my books, but two! And the reviews were an absolute joy to read!
Roses in the Devil's Garden received 5 stars, saying, "Roses in the Devil’s Garden is a short and sublime little story set in New York City during the height of prohibition in the United States... Every single thing about this book drew me in: the title, the cover, the setting, the time period, the writing style, and most of all, the men who populated the piece." You can read the rest of the review here.
The Auspicious Troubles of Chance received 4.5 stars, saying, "I had a sneaking suspicion after readingRoses in the Devil’s Gardenthat I could truly, madly, deeply become hooked on Charlie Cochet’s work.The Auspicious Troubles of Chance is all the proof I needed to quit suspecting and just let it be."

♥ Pippa Wood over at Mrs. Condit & Friends Read Books wrote a beautiful review for Lost in my Waking Dream, my Historical/Sci-fi short story. These fellas don't get much love, and tend to get overshadowed by their big brothers, so it made me smile to no end to read her review.
She gave it 4 1/2 Sweet Peas and said. "Lost in My Waking Dream is almost lyrical in its language, and portrayal of seemingly impossible love. I found myself waiting and praying that Noah and George would cross the Window and be together. I, Ms. Cynical, wanted them to have their happy ever after. I truly adored Lost in My Waking Dream." You can read the rest of her review here.
I want to thank you all for not only taking the time to read my books, but for the time you spend writing about them, as well as stopping by all those spots and leaving lovely comments. You guys are the best, and I truly appreciate it. My birthday is exactly one month from today, so I'll start thinking up some special celebratory posts and giveaways for you all. Hugs!
