There are some reviewers I read because they have such a love of books and a passion for the subject that their information is always useful to me. Elisa Rolle, as I have mentioned before, is one of those. I get a LOT of my books based on Elisa’s recommendations. I always enjoy her reviews and ramblings as she calls them. I’ve had the privilege of meeting her, and she is every bit as terrific in person as she is on her blog. The only thing I can’t figure out is where she gets the time it must take to pursue blogging about romance as well and in as much depth as she does.
At any rate, she reviewed my very first novel and it’s been a thrill to find myself on her site every time. This time, she reviewed Stirring Up Trouble, the MLR Press comedy novella, which is good timing since I’m just finishing up edits on All Stirred Up, the companion piece to that book. In fact, I’ll be announcing the release date of All Stirred Up shortly, so stay tuned!
A special note to readers attending the Romantic Times Convention in Los Angeles this week, April 5-10: I have very a limited number of Stirring Up Trouble T-shirts, (among other cool things) that I’ll be giving away at Club RT on Wednesday at 1:30 and on Friday at 2:45. That’s a special opportunity for me to meet and greet readers and fellow authors, so don’t miss out! Be sure to stop by for a chat and a chance to pick up some of the swag I’ve been stockpiling. I’ll be signing at Book Expo on Friday afternoon and also at the big book fair on Saturday. If you’re at the convention, you should definitely stop by and say hello. I’ll look forward to seeing you all there!
If you can’t make it to the convention, never fear! Stay tuned for contest opportunities this week! I’ll be posting on and off, giving the rest of the readers a chance!
Among other things, Elisa says in her review:
There is a thing to be said, writing a good comedy it’s probably more difficult than writing any other genre; comedy has a perfect balance, it’s not too much to be comic, it’s not too few to be simply fiction. With Stirring Up Trouble Z.A. Maxfield has given us a perfect example of classy comedy.
