Ah yes, more reviews

I'm still doing pretty okay with the reviews. A common thread has come out about the language used by Mark and Josh. I can accept that. I'll probably tone it down some for the sequel but I like my guys to talk like guys. LOL.

Kassa wrote on her LJ and for Good Reads and gave me 4 out of 5 stars.
Kassa Reviews LJ- The same review is here at Good Reads

Good Reads- there are 5 reviews there thus far, including Kassa's, and they average at this point- 4.25 stars out of 5. I did get one odd one about the "bad dialog."

Lost and Found is currently on "live review" over at EH on books for today- where he also gave it 4 out of 5 at Good Reads. Again, it was the harsh language that took the review down a notch, yet he still highly recommends it.


  1. Just thought I'd stop in and give my two cents worth on the language thing..

    While I personally had issues with it - because it is a pet peeve of mine - I still maintain the book would not be what it is without it...

    I would hate for you to pare down what will ultimately stretch readers or at the least give them something to talk about in order to satisfy a few pet peeves...

    Stay true to your guys...

    Thank you for the link....


  2. LOL- I appreciate the honesty, really and I do listen. My son is a medic with the Army National Guard and when he came back from his tour in Iraq, his language was really very colorful to put it politely. :)

    I will stay true to Mark and Josh, it's who they are.

    I appreciate the great review too. Thanks so much!
