I've recently published a short story entitled The Search for Trisha Campbell on Amazon. My husband, wanting to support me, decided he'd buy the story, read it and leave me a review. I told him to be honest - that was all I wanted. Even if it meant leaving me a one star review.

He contacted them and asked why his review was not yet posted. Their reply was that he is related to me. Hmmm, so does that mean none of my relatives, be they cousins, siblings, parents, etc. cannot leave a review on any of my work? Does this extend to friends as well?

“Christmas in October” The holidays will be here before we know it!If you’re like me, you have at least one person who already has EVERYTHING!Not to mention your sons, daughters, or nieces and nephews – who have so many computer games and toys, you trip over them when you walk into their bedrooms? Instead of one more toy that will be forgotten by January, or spending money on a gift someone MIGHT like, why not go for something different. A gift that sparks a child’s imagination or allows your friends to relax and lose themselves in a world of humor, romance, mystery or fantasy – a book! We just might have the solution and the good news is you just might get them for free! During the month of October we have over 45 authors to showcase their book covers, a tagline, AND a giveaway.Every Monday and Thursday, for the entire month, different authors will show you what they have to offer! How does this help you?Simple.All you need to do is stop by Penny’s Tales, www.pennyestelle.…
