I'm grateful to the following Christian Fiction Blog Tour members for blogging about A Family Forever today:
When David Meigs over at The Curmudgeon's Rant received the copy I sent him to review, his wife snatched it out of his hands. Then his son grabbed it. Finally, patient David got his turn. His review is so glowing, you're going to think I paid him to post it. I might have, if I'd known he was going to use words like "masterfully written" and "exquisite drama". Who knew a guy would gush so much about a romance novel?
Gina Burgess has posted a gushy review, also, along with a short interview. And I am starting to like all this praise way too much.
Bless her dear heart, Michelle Pendergrass e-mailed last night to apologize for not posting a detailed review due to a death in her family, but she has posted a link to my blog and my book's page at Amazon. That was unnecessary, my friend. Anybody can see you have more important things to think about right now. Those of you who are praying people, please take a moment to remember Michelle and her family.
Christopher Well informs me that he's posted Part Two of an interview he began yesterday. I'm afraid to go over there and look because as I recall, he had e-mailed me some very tough questions which I had to answer late at night. All that was missing was a pair of handcuffs, a hard chair in an empty room, and a bright light in my face. (I'm surprised that a guy who writes crime novels didn't think of that, but I didn't want to mention it before now.)
And here's another guy gushing about my book: Novelist T.L. Hines concludes his review this way:
Even though Ms. Coulter's book lacks much of the classic supernatural/horror elements I love in stories, it really isn't lacking anything as a novel. Coulter's writing is tight and crisp--and downright playful at times. The story moves along at a brisk clip. And (this is a big one for me) I actually cared about/identified with the characters.
If the recent books I've read are any indication, inspirational romance is a diverse and, yes, enjoyable genre.
Just don't tell anyone I said that.
Whoops. Sorry, Tony--it just slipped out.
And going from gushy guys to goofy ones, Chris Mikesell can always coax a laugh out of me. I tried to give back as good as I got when answering his off-the-wall interview questions, but he had the last word, as always, and is now trying to start a rumor that my third novel will be titled--
No. Never mind.
There's a review up at faithfiction. I'm not sure whose blog that is, but it appears to belong to one of the CFBT members.
And lest you all think these bloggers were "allowed" to post only glowing reviews, check out this one at T.S. Beckett's blog. I know this fellow writer as Marvin, a gentleman who posts regularly on one of the message boards I frequent. Marvin didn't care for my book and he says so, very kindly. I appreciated his post.
