Five Star Review

Secret Past is a book I spent a lot of years writing and perfecting.  I never thought it was good enough until my middle daughter told me to stop fussing with it and publish it.  Don’t get me wrong I love the story but I couldn’t believe other people would want to read a full length story I’d written.

With her (and my other daughters) encouragement I published.  I’ve been watching it for eight months and every time there is a sale, it’s a thrill.  There is still a part of me who is under confident and doubtful of my skills.  I think I need that doubt to make sure I’m writing to the standard I expect.

Yesterday I received a surprise in my email.  I sent a copy of Secret Past to several web sites for reviews.  I got one yesterday.  As soon as I saw it in my email, I prepared myself for a horrible review.  I don’t know what I expected the person to say but I never expected a five star review.

I love Dee and Nick.  They were my first full length characters.  My first foray into developing someone’s personality, reactions, and life.  Their story became a large part of my life.  The first time I had to cut scenes from the book, I felt like I was ripping apart their lives.

Yes, for all the therapists out there, I know they are characters.  I know they are figments of my imagination.  I also know how much they mean to me.  I never expected them to mean so much to others.

Go check out the review. 

Secret Past is available as an ebook and a paperback.  You can purchase it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, and a lot of other places.
