The first review for No Place Like Home isn't a good one. At all. The reader really, really, really hated the story. And while it sucks that they didn't like it, I was able to accept the review. After all, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I just hope it doesn't keep others from giving the story a chance.

I spent at least a year working on this novella. It isn't a romantic story, so I already have that against me. There's no love story to pull readers in. This is a story about a broken family, and the death of a seventeen year old girl. It has a somewhat open ending (something I've explained previously), allowing the readers to decide what they think happens after the final scene. I think the easiest way to describe the story is by saying it is a bit like If I Stay, and I say this because after Savannah's death, she is still on Earth. She spends her time looking after Jeremy, all while trying to figure out how she died.

I haven't seen any reviews on The Yearning yet, but I know there are a decent amount of copies loaded up on e-readers. So I'm expecting negative reviews to poor in shortly; I always hope that readers will love my stories, but I go in expecting the worst. It makes rejection from readers easier to deal with.

If you need me on August 13th, the re-launch date for Capture and Program 13, you'll be able to find me in my closet. In the fetal position. Shaking. I'm dreading the reviews of these re-release titles. Dreading, I tell you.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear that! I know it's easy for me to say, but please, it's one, ONE persons opinion. I am sure there will be wonderful reviews as well. Hang in there!!
    I just finished reading The Yearning, and would love to read No place like home as well.
    Can I find it somewhere else than amazon? ( as I live in Norway and amazon is charging more for it)

    Loved The Yearning!

  2. Oh I know, I think the reason I'm so bummed is because it was the first review for the title. So I'm starting to wonder if all of the others will be the same. It's nothing I should be stressing about, but I'm a worrywart, haha.

    And thank you! I'm glad you liked it. :)

    I can't upload it to Smashwords yet (it's exclusive to Amazon until August 19th), but if you'd like I can e-mail you a Kindle format for free? If so, just reply with your e-mail.
