Reader Reviews . . .Do you?

As an author, reviews are very important to my career. I'm not talking about having reviews just so we can break the algorithms of Amazon (it's rumored that if an author has at least 50 reviews on a book, Amazon algorithms promotes the book). I'm talking about real and honest reviews.

I write fun and light hearted mysteries along with southern romance novels. Each one of those are based around real women with real lives. I know that some of the mysteries are paranormal, but none the less, the  women in those mysteries can be related to. The  heroines in my  romance novels are definitely someone each of us can relate to.

Some of you might like  my mysteries so much more than you like my romances, but each and every review is so important to me as the author, not me as a USA TODAY Bestselling author. I want each one of my novels to touch a reader in such a way that they want to shout to the world how much my novel helped them escape out of their daily lives.

There is no rig…

And so it goes...

I honestly can not believe my twins are heading off to college in a few months. Truth be told, I've been preparing myself for this  moment for some months now. For Christmas I made sure I bought them things they will need like a new laptop, new bedding, etc., that they will need to take with them because it was decided by them that they would go away from home.

That said. . . they turned 18 years old back in September. They are good boys and I've never had to police them or their activities. The only real control I had was over their checking and savings accounts. All I heard was "I can't wait until I'm 18", "When I'm 18...". When they turned 18, I started to treat them like grownups. I didn't transfer money into their accounts, I didn't wake them for school, I didn't take them to their dr appointments, I didn't do their laundry, I didn't pay for special nights out with friends and I didn't make their lunches for school.…
