Fresh Fiction

What is ‘Fresh Fiction’? They are a fabulous website, in their own description ‘Fresh Fiction: Books and authors for today’s readers of Mystery, Thrillers, Romance, Suspense, Fantasy and Science Fiction’. A broad range indeed, and I’m doubly honored that they chose li’l ole me out of the vast sea of authors.

Their pick of the day is chosen by their reviewers, again, in their own words in a letter to my editor about Awaiting the Fire: “The Fresh Pick is chosen by a group of readers and is never a purchased advertisement or promotion. We’ve chosen your book because it appeals to us and we like to share our diverse tastes in reading and hope other
readers will give it a try.”

So, here are some links:

Check out the new page here – the ‘What’s Up My Nose?‘ contest – in celebration!!

Romantic Times gives Awaiting the Fire Four Stars and says: “Simpson has upgraded the gothic to new heights in her series and continues to merge sexual tension, the paranormal and a grand passion within a classic genre.”

Also: Over at The Idea Boutique, I give a little insight into how I got and developed the idea for Awaiting the Fire… Thanks so much to Heather for letting me gab a bit!
