Happy spring everyone!
SO happy. I just found out that the review site Long and Short Reviews has rated my paranormal novel Drawn a “Best Book.” This is high praise indeed. Higher than their 5-star rating. As the site explains it, the Best Book rating is reserved “For a book or story that is truly exceptional. You think about it when you’re not reading it. You wonder what happens to the characters when you finish. You would absolutely buy everything else this author had to offer. The highest praise – and reserved for only a few.”
So you know I’m smiling about this.
In case ya don’t know about Drawn, here’s the description:
She’s the artist that finds him in her drawings. He’s the medieval ghost that conquers her heart. And their time is running out.
Michelle De Freccio moves to England seeking a normal life, but someone starts appearing in her sketches. Then he grabs her at the castle, his pale green eyes full of longing. She’s immediately drawn to him, but is Christopher Newman real? She’s either losing it, or channeling a hot ghost from the 1400′s. History calls him a murderer. Her heart tells her other truths. Now Michelle faces endless dangers…and a timeless love.
A Night Owl Reviews Top Pick: “…an utter delight to read. I could not put it down. This is a fantastic romantic and tender story that will continue to enchant readers for years to come.”
So… back to today’s write up. At the Long and Short Reviews site, the reviewer said: I was drawn (pun intended) into this book from the first page and couldn’t put it down…The setting is wonderful…This story is so deftly created that I was in each setting and could easily “see” Michelle’s art without illustrations…It has the perfect amount of romance, and enough action and suspense to keep the most distracted reader turning the pages.
This review also gives a great spoiler-free summary of the novel, so if you want a feel for whether this book is for you or not, you can check out the complete write up by clicking here.
I’m also happy to report that Drawn is currently ranked #29 in its category of top sellers over at Amazon, and it keeps consistently getting great reviews from book bloggers and readers alike. In fact, the novel’s goodreads.com page is full of praise from readers who have been saying stuff like: “I LOVED this book. It wa (sic) such a breath of fresh air. It was so well written and so entertaining i could not put it down.” And “This book was so unexpectedly amazing…” To check out the goodreads page for Drawn (and to add your own reviews there if you’ve read the novel), simply click here.

"I'm not Josie Grossie anymore!"
Thanks so much to my readers who have shared their love for my book. I have no words to express how this makes me feel. As Drew Barrymore says in Never Been Kissed, “I’m speechless. This never happens to me. Words are my life!”
