My humorous contemporary romance, Painted Lady, is now available on Amazon, B&N, Smashwords and XinXii. I have been fortunate to receive some positive and heartening reviews.
As a writer, creating the product is only half the process. It's like bouncing a ball against a brick wall. You need it to bounce back to you. When someone reads and reviews, it feels like, "I did get it right." My creation made one person laugh (or cry, or scared them). I think this is the validation we need. Just to make you feel what our character feels.
