Life for an indie author is fast-paced and deadline oriented, but regardless of time, I always pour my whole heart into my stories. Sometimes, if my ranking slips or if I haven’t had a review in a bit, I, like anyone committed to a challenging career, start to question my passion for writing and publishing.

Strangely enough, just when I start to get a bit discouraged, something happens that reaffirms my commitment to my craft.

So imagine my delight, when a wonderful, 5-star review of The Spirit Breather was published yesterday! Like any author, I love to see five stars when it comes to my books. However, it was what the review said that meant the most. Everything Risa Kay Nichols, lead blogger at alatedbibliophile.com, were elements I worked to perfect, from creating a non-annoying, strong female protagonist to a strong male romantic interest.

All in all, this review was just the pick-me-up I needed! Thanks to Risa for this amazing review!
