Debut Author Giddiness - Advance Praise

Shh...Don't tell anyone, but writers are sometimes very insecure. There are so many moments in the process of writing and the separate but related process of seeking publication when self-doubt and insecurity may rear their mercilessly cruel heads.

Sometimes, that self-doubt is can drive us to improve and evolve. But sometimes it can be crippling. seems important to celebrate milestones...if only for a moment.  And so here's yet another *Big Moment* as we get closer to the May 2nd release date for Never Too Late

Never Too Late has received advance praise from USA Today Bestselling Author Nicola Cornick, a brilliant powerhouse in Regency historical romance. I adore her Scandalous Women of the Ton series, especially Desired.

Here are some of the lovely (and, by lovely, I mean "OMG, I CAN'T BELIEVE NICOLA CORNICK SAID THIS ABOUT MY BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!**) comments she had about Never Too Late:
  • "Deliciously romantic and sizzling with sensual tension."
  • "A strong heroine, a gorgeous hero and an intense and passionate romance. Captivating!"
  • "Witty, original and charming." 

**I was doing so well controlling the exclamation points, but they burst out anyway. How could they not, after such wonderful words?! So giddy! I may print out her comments and put them in a frame by my desk as a talisman to use against my next onslaught of writerly self-doubt.


  1. Yay! Use all the exclamation points you want--you have a good reason! :)

  2. Lara - Thanks! At this point, I think exclamation is beyond my control. They're just going to happen. I hope things are going well in your corner of the world too!!
