It’s always nail-biting time when a book launches and then you find out what readers think. My nails are nearly safe: there’s some incredible reactions to Lee and Bobby.
From Becky Condit: A terrific adventure, full of surprises and love, and a romance that spans time. (See the full review)
From Serena Yates at Rainbow Book Reviews: If you like thrilling, suspenseful adventure stories, if you enjoy watching two men come together – or try to – who have the potential to either love wholly or utterly destroy each other, and if you’re looking for an exciting read that has the potential to mesmerize you, then you will probably like this novel as much as I do. It left me spellbound and holding my breath more than once. (See the full review)
From Mel at Alpha Book Club: I could go on and on about how deep and well-written this book is, but I don’t want to ruin any of the discoveries you’ll make on your own. This book is for ALL readers, everyone. You will LOVE it. SO WELL DONE – go pick up a copy, you won’t be sorry! (See the full review)
So thank you, kind readers!

I’ve been neck-deep in a project and have gotten woefully behind in blogging, but I surfaced today to discover some wonderfully kind words.
Along with such other fabulous writers as Kaje Harper and Erica Pike, my book was listed as a Recommended Read for February. To quote:
These are chosen by us, the reviewers of Prism Book Alliance™. It is a way to recognize those authors whose work sticks with us. Those who go above and beyond.
Feliz said, in part: if you’re ready to sink into an artfully crafted story full of philosophical wisdom, permeated with heartfelt human kindness and imperturbable optimism, reach for this book, you can’t go wrong.
I am touched beyond words. To read the full review, click here, and may Chad and Warren resonate with you as well as with Feliz and the other readers and reviews who have taken the time to comment.
I got up to find a lovely review at Jessewave’s. It’s always nervewracking to put your work out for the world; feedback like this from a picky reader takes some of the indigestion away.
In part, Lloyd said: “…This is a terrific read and I hope you treat yourself by picking it up. It’s an intelligent, interesting, emotionally satisfying story with lovable characters. Even if you’re not crazy about cycling (or even yummy cyclists’ thighs in shiny lycra), let Spokes take you for a victory lap.”
Mmm, cyclists’ thighs–see what he means?
He gave it 4.5 stars, and I will be walking about 4.5 inches about the ground for the rest of the day. Read the rest of his review here, and you can get your own copy at Rocky Ridge Books, Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and All Romance eBooks, as print and ebook (MOBI, EPUB, and PDF.)
Some far-sighted folks bought advance print copies of Spokes at GayRomLit. One of them turned out to be reviewer Lady McNeill of Mrs. Condit and Friends Read Books.
Lady McNeill is a distance cyclist /triathlete, so she knows whereof she speaks when it comes to the sport, and she’s a discerning reader when it comes to the relationship. I don’t say that just because she gave Spokes a 4 1/2 Sweet Pea rating (although you bet I appreciate it!)
Picky lady said, in part: “Overall, an excellent, well-crafted story that was a perfect blend of romance and cycling…a rare find!”
See the rest here, and you can pick up your copy at your favorite e-tailer (unless you prefer Apple, which is an ongoing struggle to get posted to. But soon.) Available from Rocky Ridge Books, Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and All Romance eBooks, as print and ebook (MOBI, EPUB, and PDF.)

Money, It’s A Crime – Return to the Mountain by P.D. Singer
OMG, first review in for Return to the Mountain! Lisa at The Novel Approach enjoyed what she read, giving it five stars. See Pam’s eyes get wide!
In part, this is what she said:
Return to the Mountain is a story filled with truths about dishonesty and the damaging consequences of doing the wrong things for the right reasons. It’s not at all an exaggeration to say that I loved it, loved Seth’s simplicity and Gary’s eventual understanding that earning Seth’s respect was the only thing worth working for.
If you haven’t read any of the Mountain books or The Rare Event, for that matter, don’t let that stop you from picking this one up.
See the rest here, and go ahead and grab your own copy to see what Lisa’s talking about. Find it at Dreamspinner, Amazon, All Romance eBooks, Barnes and Noble, and other fine eTailers.
