Being relatively new to the world of publishing, each new story that I dress warmly and send out the door into the world inspires worries. Will readers like it? Did I explain X well enough? Will they think Z's behavior deplorable or amusing? A good review brings sighs of relief, and also the need to thank a few people.
Before my work ever attaches to a publisher-bound email, several sets of eyes peruse it. These folks work full-time jobs, or attend college, and out of the goodness of their hearts take time out of their busy days to critique my work. To all my betas, I couldn't do this without you.
Then there's editors and proofers, some whose names I know, some I don't .They put a lot of effort into helping better each story. Thank you, everyone!
Last but definitely not least are the readers, who add their voice toward improving my efforts, and whose emails and reviews make my day. You cannot know how much you are appreciated.
With that said, I'm tickled to death that Settling the Score has been named a Recommended Read at Joyfully Reviewed.
Here is some of what reviewer Lisa had to say:
Settling the Score is sure to capture your heart. Poignant and tender one moment, ruthless and cut throat the next, readers will embrace Settling the Score. The major players in this story jump off the pages, as well as their lives and loves. Rich in detail and lengthy in drama, not to mention a healthy dose of humor, Settling the Score is a winner. Joey is a character who comes to life for everyone while Troy, with his scarred soul, is also certain to find a place in reader’s hearts. From start to finish Settling the Score is neatly played out with all the angst and love author Eden Winters beautifully pens. I Joyfully recommend Settling the Score.Read entire review here.
