So, author blurbs...
Some people say they don't put much stock in them. Others say they buy books because of them. I fall into the latter group. If I love an author's writing, and they say a book is worth reading, I'm much more likely to check it out.
What all that means is, I think I need to buy a copy of A LITTLE TOO FAR. ;-)
I've been doing a lot of nail biting because I knew some of my very favorite authors were reading it. Nail biting turned to jumping up and down and screaming when really lovely comments started popping up on Twitter, etc. And now that they're official blurbs, I get to share them with you.
Here's what Jay Crownover had to say about A LITTLE TOO FAR: “This is forbidden love and longing done absolutely right! Complicated and sexy doesn't even begin to cover Lexie's journey.” --JAY CROWNOVER, New York Times bestselling author of RULE
My thoughts on RULE: RULE has a solid spot at the top of my all-time favorites. I thought about it for weeks after I read it, and I still want a Rule of my own. He climbed right off the page and into my heart. I pimp it to anyone who will listen, and if you need proof, check out my agent's blog here.
Cora Carmack blew me away with this comment about A LITTLE TOO FAR:
"Sinfully sexy, but utterly unique. My favorite New Adult book of the year!" --CORA CARMACK, New York Times bestselling author of LOSING IT
My thoughts on LOSING IT:
LOSING IT was the first actual NA I read, and I fell in love with Cora's writing and her adorably awkward characters. It's funny and sexy and sweet, and it has Shakespeare! What else could you ever ask for?
Jennifer L. Armentrout has forever been one of my favorite writers, so when she said this about A LITTLE TOO FAR, I literally screamed a little: “More than a ridiculously sexy, HOT read, Desrochers takes you on a wild ride of self-discovery and bittersweet romance.” --JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT (J. Lynn), New York Times bestselling author of WAIT FOR YOU
My thoughts on WAIT FOR YOU:
I love everything Jennifer writes, so I knew I would love this one too. I wasn't disappointed. This is one of the sweetest NAs (and also super hot!) that I've read, and I can't say enough about how fabulous this book is.
And, from Monica Murphy, New York Times bestselling author of ONE WEEK GIRLFRIEND, A LITTLE TOO FAR got this lovely review: "Really enjoyed this book. Taboo subject matter but handled deftly. Love the cover. The characters are relatable. Definitely recommend!"
I haven't had a chance to read this, but I've heard fabulous things about it, and it's next on my TBR shelf! Can hardly wait!
I want to send a public thanks to these awesome authors for taking the time to read my little book. I'm totally over the moon that authors I've read and loved, love me back. I highly recommend you read these fabulous books, and I hope, if you've read and liked any of them, you might consider downloading A LITTLE TOO FAR onto your reader of choice when it releases September 17th!
There are lots of really fabulous things about being published, but one of the funnest (yes, I know funnest isn't a word, but I'm too excited to care :p) is when I get to announce stuff like this:
So, German people will be reading my book…in GERMAN! OMG! It’s kinda messing with my head that there’ll be something out there in the world that I wrote, but CAN’T READ! O_O
Here's the little place in Germany I'm gonna buy when A LITTLE TOO FAR sells a bazillion copies there. =) Nice view, eh? I could get used to that... LOL. Thanks so much to the lovely Kathleen Ortiz at New Leaf Literary for making this happen, and smooches to Germany! And to all of you, I'll be back out from my writing cocoon soon with more giveaways. Final A LITTLE TOO MUCH revisions are due to my fabulous editor Monday, and A LITTLE TOO HOT (working title bk 3) is due on Thursday. And it is. Hot, I mean. :D So check back for chances to win cool stuff, like signed A LITTLE TOO FAR ARCs and more!
