Although my debut MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY won't be out for a few more months (come on September!!), and most ARCs (advanced reader copies) have yet to be made available to the public, early praise has been building from fellow authors....
And I've done about a bazillion happy dances because of it!
Yesterday I added to this site the press kit and sale sheet for MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY, as well as all the excerpts, book trailer, and 'Praise Page.' And I was able to add the latest author endorsement, one I got yesterday morning and totally made my day.
Wanna know why?
I'll tell you! It came from none other than Lisa Bergren, the author of one of my favorite series of all time (River of Time--Waterfall, Cascade, Torrent, along with the novellas) AND the new series I reviewed this weekend that I fell in love with (Glamorous Illusions is book one in the Grand Tour series)!!!
And here is what she said about MY book (*pinching self*):
If you ever wish you could bop back in time for a peek at how things REALLY were, prepare yourself for a Renaissance-shaped treat. MY SUPER-SWEET 16th CENTURY was just what I was looking for in a YA time travel novel. First of all, it's set in Italy (need I say more, really?) Second, it's a fun, romantic romp among deliciously dressed and cultured people. But it goes a bit deeper too. It's also a chance to witness Cat experience things that will change her forever...things she might not have discovered in her own time...things that grow and stretch her. Don't miss Rachel Harris's debut. It's a totally fun and totally satisfying read.
--Lisa T. Bergren, author of the River of Time Series (WATERFALL, CASCADE, TORRENT)
Yeah, I think I've read it to everyone I've seen since she sent it. (*grin*)
What's amazing is that Lisa's squee worthy endorsement is just the latest in sweet shout outs that have just made the build up to publication so wonderful.
Come check out what authors Holly Schindler, Victoria Scott, Chloe Jacobs, Diane Alberts, Trisha Wolfe, Shannon Duffy, Cindi Madsen, and Hope Collier have to say about MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY at my PRAISE FOR SUPER SWEET page, and squee with me! :)
Question for YOU: What has made YOU do a bazillion happy dances lately? I love hearing good news!
