First Review – By Another Name

Thanks, all who participated in our little Easter Egg Hunt! The prize winners are noted in the comments of Saturday’s post.

In other news!

I must share with you all a lovely review I received for By Another Name from “You’ve Gotta Read Reviews!” My reviewer gave it a “You Need to Read” level – which is marvelous! Here’s a little tease – head on over to read the full review:

By Another Name is such a touching and pleasurable read. I don’t think there is one person who wasn’t taunted in one form or another in high school…I really felt for Kade’s character… Directly or indirectly, he was responsible for some of her past and he would do anything in his power to fix what had been done.

…Ashley Elizabeth Ludwig did an exceptional job relating to the reader. The story had characters that I really enjoyed and the message was perfect… I recommend this book to all those who love to read a super sweet love story with very real emotions. It’s a story of forgiveness, love and the fact that when you get older, yes, you really can have what you desire.

One of the fears of an author is letting your stories go — and be read or not read, enjoyed or “flung against the wall” by your readers. This one had me happy dancing today. Thanks to Val and to You Gotta Read Reviews!

    I have no problem letting my stories go.
    What we like to read is a personal choice and what one person hates another might love. You just gotta keep on going!

    Mary, you’re brilliant. One person’s treasure is another person’s …? LOL. Hopefully, another person’s treasure TOO!

    I’m blessed with the number of people who support my writing – and it gives me courage to share with the world. Find the constructive critique and leave the rest, right? 🙂

    Thanks for sharing.

    Your website is really interesting, I’m going to dive right in and read more of your posts! Congratulations on the great review from You Gotta Read. They are a wonderful group of people.

    By the way, I’m jealous that you live in the wine growing area of south western California… I’ve never been to that particuliar area, but I know I want weather like yours! And there’s just something about that fabulous California light…

    xx Francesca

    Thanks for the comment! I love it here – our city was named after a Pechanga Indian word meaning “Sun through the morning mist…” That’s what it looks like, most mornings!

    Thanks so much for visiting and hope you have fun here… If you twitter, let me know where to follow you!
