Weekly-ish Wrap-up- March 24
Another Friday, another yay! Hope your week was great! Mine was busy with mostly non-writerly stuff.
Been working on a contemporary romance. There are lots of alpha dog sexytime scenes. Be prepared. Be very prepared….
Loads of promo the past couple weeks to spread the word about King's Warrior. I'm sometimes astonished at how much work it takes to sell books. For the record, I'm a terrible, terrible saleswoman.
Reviews for King's Warrior
Was really touched by this blog Courtney Milan did over at Amazon's Book Review blog, Omnivoracious, recommending exciting, immersive, out-of-the-box historical romances. She rec'ced King's Warrior, saying
“…medieval romances that manage to capture, on the one hand, the hard, almost epic romanticism of an era filled with castles, brigands, and nobles, and on the other, romances that appeal to modern sensibilities with searingly hot romances with plots that start at adventure and never stop.”
All About Romance reviewed King's Warrior and said, “King’s Warrior is full of action and Ms. Kennedy is a superb storyteller…I’d definitely recommend King’s Warrior to you.”
I was especially touched by one reader's review over at Amazon, who said, “This felt so…E P I C. Well done, dear author. And thank you. You made Magdalena, our intrepid auburn-haired heroine, even more sensual, capably resourceful, and fierce. You also gave her grace. OMG I love her!! Our, Tadhg? You made him truly heroic….you gave him an inner voice so profound, unsure, yet resolved, that all I wanted was what HE wanted. To go home.”
