Reflections: Book Tour Day 5




This has been one great week on the blog tour for Love Illusion. The response to the book has been great. I’ve seen a lot of comments on how readers connected to the characters and how they enjoyed my descriptive writing style. It’s nice to see that all of my hard work and being a perfectionist in my writing pay off.

On day 5 of the blog tour Christy’s Written Word Love rated Love Illusion 4 stars. Christy had many positive things to say about the book, but a few things stood out to me. She loved the relationship between Lucy and Jade. She also loved how the story was told from three different point of views and how they all intertwined in the end. I’m glad that Christy loved the book so much.

Next week is week two of the blog tour. You will get to know more about me with more Q & A’s and there will be more reviews.

I hope that you all have a happy and relaxing Easter weekend.

Reflections: Book Tour Days 3 & 4



Day 3 of the book tour started off with a Q & A as well as an excerpt on Change the Word. I enjoyed answering Laura’s questions. My favorite question that she asked was: If you could spend a day with any literary character, who would it be and why?

On Jess’s Book Blog Love Illusion got a five star review. I was happy to see this and glad that Jess thought it was such a great read. In her review Jess said that she really enjoyed the book ¬†and was really scared of Charles. She could also see Lucy’s strength as the book progressed. These are the things that I want readers to get out of the book and I’m glad that Jess did.

There was an excerpt in Everything Books and Authors. Readers can get a sense of my writing style and what Love Illusion is all about by reading the excerpt.

I can’t wait to see what day 5 has in store for the tour. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway here.

Reflections: Book Tour Day 2


Today Love Illusion was on the Ai Love Books Blog with a review and a Q & A. Although Love Illusion got its first rating of 3 stars the review given was not bad at all. She loved my descriptive writing style as the reviewer from yesterdays blog tour stop did. I’m glad that my writing style connects with so many people and that those that read it can see what I am writing as if they were in the scene.

The Q&A was a to the point one, but again readers can get to know me a little more. My favorite question asked was “How do you come up with the idea of the book? What is your inspiration?” I like the Q & A’s because some of the questions challenge me.

Day 3 of the tour is tomorrow with another Q & A and excerpt. Today has been another great day of the tour.

Short Story Review: Girls Who Travel


Author: Nicole Trilivas

Author Website: Nicole Trilivas

Chapters: 25

Pages: 18

Short Story Website: Girls Who Travel



Girls Who Travel by Nicole Trilivas is a great read for those who love the genre of chick lit as well as travelling. It is the story of Kika, who is unhappy in the jobs that she has and her life, but is given an opportunity of a lifetime. She has always wanted to go back to London, and she gets the chance to when a family that she used to baby sit for asks her to come and work for them.


Kika jumps at the chance and is living the life that she has always wanted. Lochlon, is a boy that she met through her travels who emails her. They have stayed in contact since they last saw each other a year ago. In London Kika meets new individuals, while discovering a new her.


Short Story Review

Girls Who Travel is a short story that I found on Wattpad , which won the Marian Keyes Chicklit Short Story Contest. The book cover drew me in and I was intrigued by the synopsis that I read. I love to travel so almost any book with a travel aspect will draw me in.

The chapters flow very well. They aren't too long or too short. There is also a lot of description which allows for a clear visual of what is going on while you are reading.

Character development is used very well when it comes to Kika and Lochton. Lochlon's character is highlighted in the emails that he sends to Kika.

Nicole Trilivas uses a lot of emotion in the plot to really let you know how Kika is feeling. She has expectations for her relationship with Lochlon and the plot slowly builds up to their meeting. From Nicole's writing you get a very detailed picture of how the Darlings live a lavish life and how Kika fits in well there. You immediately see a transformation in her outlook on life and in her attitude.


I would recommend this short story to anyone who loves chick lit as well as a good plot. It has all of the elements of a great read: love, emotion, travels, and self discovery.


Happy Reading,
