A Matter of When Strikes Again!

It never fails. I write the best book I can, pay attention to my betas, crit partners and editors, and lovingly polish the story until it's as shiny as I can get it. Then, it's launched out into the world. I bite my nails. Will this be the book everyone hates? Should I have said that differently on page 70? Will folks know what I mean on page 112? Jeez, a typo! OMG!

So those first reviews can send a writer reaching for the bottle or let them breath a sigh of relief.

There's been a lot of happy sighing at my house, and not a glass of consolation wine in sight. So far, my latest work, A Matter of When, has been very well received.

Yesterday Rainbow Book Reviews' reviewer Lena Grey had this to say about the story:

"There are many things I love about this book. I'm always drawn by anything to do with almost any kind of music, so I automatically loved Sebastian and Henri. I especially enjoyed Eden's song lyrics. They added real depth. The secondary characters are fantastic, particularly Tess; she is simply ethereal, just like the song written for her implies, and a fantastic female role model as well. Portraying the serious subject of abuse was no easy task, but Eden did a great job of showing how easily someone can take over our lives, but how incredibly difficult, physically and emotionally, it is to get out of this crippling position. I recommend this story to everyone who enjoys music, strong character growth, suspense, intrigue, villains, and two handsome men who find each other while finding themselves. Thank you so much, Eden, for making my heart sing."

Read entire review at Rainbow Book Reviews:

 Wealth. Fame. Gold record. Hookers and Cocaine front man Henri Lafontaine has it all…including a control freak manager, band members who smile as they sharpen blades for his back, and last but damn well not least, a fan out to steal his heart. Literally. Trying to write hit songs and plan a comeback in the midst of the hi-fi white noise of LA feels more like watching his world implode, until he’s offered a month in the Colorado Rockies for vocal coaching.

Sebastian Unger’s rich, classically trained tenor inspires wicked thoughts. More than a pretty choir boy, he cracks the whip without hesitation to drive tattooed bad-boy Henri to give his all to his music. Working, fighting, and finally establishing a fragile peace, they find inspiration and perhaps more in each other. But the clock is ticking. Time will pull Henri back to the grit and gold of LA’s mean streets and fame machine, while Sebastian must return to the opera circuit, where a mysterious man known as “the patron” holds far too much sway. Only the trust they've built on a handful of notes bridges their two worlds...and shields them from malice.
