Warm Fuzzies from Peers!!!

Good reviews and positive feedback are always nice to get, but they mean even more when they come from one's peers!

I was quite pleased to see fellow author Scott Whitmore's  review of THE LIES HAVE IT.  Scott had previously reviewed both Blood and Groom and Dead Light District, and he quite liked each of them.  I'm very happy that he enjoyed book three in the series as well.  His review ends with:

"I highly recommend the Sasha Jackson series for anyone looking for fast-paced and fun light mysteries. Perfect companions for curling up on the couch on a rainy day or taking to the park or beach."

Needless to say, Scott's review made my day! 

The other recent warm fuzzy came via Margot Kinberg.  Now, Margot and I have never met, but we seem to have a lot in common, and I bet we could talk each other's ears off if we ever met face to face!  We're both academics, we're both mystery authors, and we're both avid bookworms.

Margot has an impressive list of books in her Spotlight series, and I feel honoured to have my book listed among some wonderful crime novels.  The write-up ends with the following:

"Blood and Groom is a believable PI mystery that features a witty, likeable Sasha Jackson, a cast of interesting characters and a unique setting. The pacing keeps the reader engaged, and there are some really funny moments." 

Watch me thump my chest!!!  Yeah Baby!

The Spotlight piece is not the only time Margot has mentioned my novels: She also gave Dead Light District an honourable mention in a post called "The World's Oldest Profession." 

So, I've had some great karma lately from some fellow authors, and it has really put a smile on my face!
