Positive Feedback. Shouting it Loud!

This won’t be the first time I’ve referred to the writing process as a solitary one, as any writer will attest to. As an Indie Author however, the journey through publishing, marketing and connecting with readers and reviewers can also mean wearing many different hats, simultaneously! It is exhausting, it is time-consuming, though I am not complaining. It is my chosen path for now, and it is also most rewarding, especially when the feedback you receive is encouraging. Which is why, with no apologies, I shout it loud when the good vibes come my way!

Like this review, from book lover and reviewer, Cathy Brown and her brilliant blog 746 BOOKS

“Lady Beth is a perfectly paced page-turner of a novel which keeps the tension taut at all times. The darker side of Dublin city is perfectly judged, with well-rounded characters filling out the scenes around the titular Beth. Beth herself is a fantastic character moving seamlessly from unassuming office worker to avenging mother with an impressive lack of melodrama. Caroline has a filmic eye and the book swirls with a wonderful noir atmosphere as Beth digs deep into her past in order to build herself a future.”

This is what keeps me going, keeps me motivated, keeps me inspired – and keeps me juggling those hats!

It delivers exceptional characters and terrific prose within a page-turning unrelenting story that digs deep into the underbelly of our capital city.”
