Back by popular demand--or, actually, the demand of Kiss My Book (way to work it, girl!)--here are links to the latest reviews of Going Too Far by Kiss My Book, Persnickety Snark, YA Book Realm, Katie’s Book Blog, and Romance Reader at Heart. You do not know how much I appreciate these reviews, and I am so glad y’all are enjoying this novel! *mopping brow*

A few other links: if you would love to get into the book review blog business but you’re not sure how to get started, The Story Siren has some tips.

And finally, if you’re a fan of adult romance, you might enjoy hearing the Dear Bitches, Smart Authors podcast of my critique partner, Victoria Dahl: musings about Talk Me Down + musical laughter + funny accent.

Enjoy!!! Are you kidding me? I freaking love that book. Thanks for mentioning my site (P.Snark), it's lovely of you. Only realised today that you used a quote from my The Boys Next Door review on your site and was very, very chauffed!

Thanks, Adele

Adele, the feeling is mutual. I added that quote bc I was so thrilled to be compared to crack. I think.

Chauffed = good in Australian, I hope? Warmed, as in it warms your heart?

chauffer n. a small, portable stove or heater

chauffeur n. a person hired to drive a private automobile for someone else, from the French, literally an operator of a steam-driven car

chafe vt. to rub so as to stimulate or make warm

Remind me not to write any Australian characters because I would spend all day puzzling out etymology.

I'm flattered to think you might be referring to my "musical laughter", but if that's true, you must also be saying I have a "funny accent."

Huh.

But thanks for the shout out! I'll have to play this for my kids so they think I'm famous.

Sorry that's my fault, I accidentally typo-ed an 'a' in there. I meant chuffed which means "very pleased; "I'm chuffed to have won" used in Australia and the UK.

Anytime you need a translator though, you know where to find me :)....

The comparison to crack was definitely a compliment!! It's a metaphor that I have been using everytime I reference you now. I signed off my Waiting on Wednesday meme as Jenn Echols Junkie. lol

I would love you to write an Australian character! As long as she isn't named Sheila. I could be your official Australia-expert. I also have been bitten by a wombat, suffered through cricket, say fortnight a lot and use 'heaps' as a synonym for 'lots'. Do I pass muster? (Or is that another Aussie expression?)

You have not. What IS a wombat?
