Book PR can be fun. The best part of it is talking to intriguing people with whom I wouldn’t otherwise have had an opportunity to speak. Christine Giri of Time Tamer, Marcia Cook of A Good Story, Susan Wingate and Joshua Graham of Dialogue Between the Lines, Maryanne Comaroto of Maryanne Live, Faith Ranoli of Heart and Home Healing, Kelli McCracken of ParaYourNormal, my friend Rory Pinto of New Perspectives–all these good folks host lively radio programs that enhance and enrich the lives of their listeners.
Last night was another treat: I had the opportunity to be on Barry Eva’s sparkling radio program, A Book and a Chat. It was good fun. I hope you enjoy the show.

Glowing reviews of The Year of Loving
Two great review sites recently put up excellent reviews of my latest novel THE YEAR OF LOVING.
The first site is Mrs. Mommy Booknerd’s Book Reviews. What a cool title for a book enthusiast’s site, and what a terrific model for her children! She’s publicly proud to be a Booknerd. Kudos to Mrs. Mommy.
This book is a realistic romance that will have you guessing and touches on many areas…love, motherhood, life, struggle, romance, friendship, betrayal and so much more. The main character is raw and harsh, but also funny and smart. This book is one that romance readers will certainly enjoy.
The rawness of this story pulls at your heart and fills you with so many conflicting emotions. Her first ex-husband, and the father of her children is such a hateful and petty man. The way he turns the children against her and lets them do whatever harmful thing they want makes me want to strangle him. I would think his current wife would get tired of all the court cases and BS but she seems to be of the same ilk as he is. The second husband doesn’t seem too bad, just a little narcissistic and immature–Pretty much a perfect rebound guy, but not great husband material. It does sound like he has an awesome talent which leads me to believe that he will be going places.
The struggle with the daughters is heartbreaking. I’m not sure how things will end there but, I felt bad when Sarah tried so hard with no positive response.
Whenever I finish a novel, I email HCharju and ask respectfully for her to review my new book. She’s a thoughtful reader and a reviewer who sees to the heart of a story. I’m lucky to have discovered her.
Just One More Page review spot said: “I really, really liked this book…. Read this book. I can’t wait for the next novel in the series. I can’t wait to see what happens for Emma, and Arthur, and everyone else. Can the mists be stopped? Can Emma find happiness?”
Right from the very beginning of this book I was transported from the modern world into Slatton’s post-apocalyptic vision of the future. A future that could happen, you just never know. Right from the beginning, you also can’t help but connect with the main character, Emma, as she watches a situation unfold which, one way or the other, looks like it will lead to the death of her youngest daughter.
Thankfully, Arthur arrives and saves Emma’s daughter, but that doesn’t mean that danger has passed – this new world is rife with risk, and Emma, like everyone else, is doing her best to navigate her way through it with the least amount of trauma possible. There is so much emotional impact in this story, with many characters drawing you in and forcing you to see the world through their eyes. There is action, violence, romance. It’s raw, beautiful and compelling reading.
I loved the way that Emma developed over the story, but most of all, I think I enjoyed the way she lied to herself throughout. And I loved the way that Arthur called her on that, until the point she knew he was right when he called her a liar. Emma refuses to believe the truths in front of her, as she clings dearly to the beliefs and goals that have kept her safe so far. I think Slatton did a wonderful job of portraying this, as it could have been easy to mess up – frequently in books where the truth is evident to the reader, the reader can get frustrated with the main character for their stupidity in not seeing what’s before their eyes. That was not the case in this book.
I don’t know what else to say without giving too much away, other than – read this book. I can’t wait for the next novel in the series. I can’t wait to see what happens next for Emma, and Arthur, and everyone else. Can the mists be stopped? Can Emma find happiness?
And catch me tomorrow at noon on blogtalkradio on Time Tamer talk.
This one made me giggle. I envisioned the reader tilting her head… I do love the thought of this novel being “strangely addicting”!!

Although the story is a little strange and includes no erotic elements like one would think, the plot-line was original and the characters were interesting.
I found myself reading “The Love of My (Other) Life” with my head tilted upside down to the side with an eyebrow quirked upward since that’s literally how I felt while reading it.
I don’t believe it will be everyone’s cup of tea but I do believe that it will have your attention to the last page. It’s that strangely addicting and intriguing! haha
