Congrats to CJ!

I received my copy of RT Book Reviews magazine in the mail today, or what my hubby calls my "smut magazine". *rolls eyes* Any whoo, so I was perusing the publication when a certain review caught my eye. Lo and behold our dear, sweet very own Carolyn Jean from The Thrillionth Page has a review on her debut book Mind Games, and what a fabulous review it is. Mind Games got a rating of 4 1/2 stars out of 4 and 1/2 stars.

Wow! Crane's writing style brings to mind old-school noir, with the compelling attitude of superheroes from a graphic novel. A masterful blend of dark and light, good and bad and all the grays in between, it will draw readers thoroughly into her tale, as they root for the good guys -- while trying to figure out just who the good guys are. The ending promises more adventures, and that is a very good thing.

Congratulations, CJ. I am so happy for you!!!! I am looking forward to your book and I can't wait to meet you at the RT Convention in April.

Congrats CJ!

I'm confused - why is it out of 4 1/2 and not 5? That seems odd to me.

Hey, thanks so much! How sweet to highlight this. When I saw this, I was just like, wow! Crazy exciting.

Leslie - I have no idea why it stops at 4 1/2. I went to their website to double check that and they only do 4 1/2 instead of 5.

Carolyn - I was so excited for you when I saw the review in the magazine. I was excited because it feels like I know a famous person. I can only imagine how excited you must be. Awesome!!

Hilcia - Oh totally, I am very much so looking forward to the book.
