Hello all!! It’s been a very busy couple of weeks (and months) for me. I started working at an elementary school on August 17th, the same day Riding Dirty relaunched. I’m loving my day job so far but I don’t have as much time to write or hang out on social media. It’s been a challenge to keep up with “11 Days of Dirty Eleven.” To the authors and bloggers who hosted me, THANK YOU!!
To my readers, especially those who bought and/or reviewed the book, thank you.
Some really exciting things have happened. Last month Library Journal gave Riding Dirty a starred review–yay!!
“Sorenson (Wild) has done her homework, capturing the culture of this group of outlaws while providing electrifying steaminess, which will leave readers breathless and hungrily awaiting Book 2, Shooting Dirty.”
“All in all, Shooting Dirty was sexy, gritty, make-a-girl-pant goodness. From the romance to the setting and characters Sorenson totally nailed it. I seriously hope there will be more from this series.”
My favorite review EVER might be this one from John Jacobson at Heroes & Heartbreakers. It is SO thoughtful, articulate and heartfelt.
“The MC romance is not for everyone. Sorenson doesn’t create an easy world for us to explore—one of poverty, of nuanced sex work, and of moral grayness. However, there is immense reward in following Ace and Janelle’s relationship to the end. You as the reader get a romance that has more than earned its keep between the characters, and you feel as though both are more than due for a happy ending in their lives. Shooting Dirty is a showcase of Sorenson’s talent and of couples outside of the traditional sphere of romance, all in a tightly written package. MC romance lovers, and lovers of challenging contemporary romance, should pick this up immediately.”
Thanks John!! Writing reviews is an art in itself, and this piece is truly excellent.
But wait. There’s more. Can you believe it? I know. The other day I was tweeting about a giveaway for Shooting Dirty and SANDRA BROWN retweeted it. She’s my #1 author influence!! I’ve read more books by Sandra Brown than any other author, hands down. I thanked her for the RT and she responded: “love your mc books”
Say what? Come again? SANDRA BROWN Y’ALL!! I can’t even!!
Coincidentally (because I wrote this post over a month ago) I was just talking about how Sandra Brown got me hooked on RS at the Carina Press blog.
Whew. It’s been a great week.
