Whether it’s a pull quote, the preview feature on Amazon, or sites where you can read up to 20% of the book for free (I enabled the highest setting, because I have confidence people will want to find out what happens next), sharing is caring and I was delighted to see a reader share a bit of dialogue that caught her fancy via a Kindle feature. Go ahead and look. Maybe share something you liked, too.
I also will be sharing samples now and then that don’t spoil the stories. Humor in my books is one of the thing I really pride myself on and I as shocked to notice my posts so far haven’t been very specific about that. The characters both are deliberately witty, with sparkling banter or biting wit when it fits, and sometimes… well, there may be moments where Raf seems more like Buster Keaton than David Niven. Frankly, I think it makes him easy to relate to.
“Forever’s Too Long” just got its third 5-star review:

I’m not the best at reviews, however, with that said, I felt that Helen Krummenacker immersed herself into her first novel with stunning results. Raf is a wonderful character and a bit rough about the edges. The action flows from the beginning as well as the humor. There are a few tiny homages through personalities that I won’t give away, but I caught on! All in all an excellent read and can’t wait for the second book!

This genre mashup of 1940s detective/vampire novel must have been a challenge for Helen Krummenacker to write, but she pulled it off beautfully. She kept the pace flowing effortlessly while maintaining the suspense, and throwing in a touch of romance and humor. For a debut novel, this deserves high praise.

Had so much fun reading this book! Love Raf and Clara, the references and surprises were like presents being found around every corner. Can’t wait for the next one!

And the review are just starting to come in…
“Clever writing without being campy“
“This genre mashup of 1940s detective/vampire novel must have been a challenge for Helen Krummenacker to write, but she pulled it off beautfully….”
What a tense time. Will it sell? Will people review it? I know the book is good, but making a splash when there are so many forms of entertainment out there isn’t easy.
This is the part where the audience keeps the writer in suspense. But don’t worry, I’m good at waiting: in fact, I’ll start right now.
