The wonderful book review blog A Well Read Woman has reviewed Becoming Madonna. They gave it 5 stars!
Here’s a quote:
“The plot of Becoming Madonna is clever and original. I liked how there was a story within the story–while she was still on set with the soap opera. It was fun seeing her dashing back and forth like a chicken with her head cut off between acting and recording in the studio. And it was amusing/and almost comical to witness her panicking over her father seeing her very risque music video for “Touch Me… There”. Laurie learns that becoming a pop superstar like her idol Madonna comes at a steep price, literally and figuratively. “
Of course, I recommend you head on over to the excellent blog and read the entire review:
In other news, I’ve now completed 11 chapters of Book of Shadows 5! So, yes, progress is definitely being made. I don’t know how long it will take me to complete the book, but I’m hoping to have it written and ready by Thanksgiving. Book of Shadows 4: In Memoriam took me a little over an entire year to write, so that might be a tough deadline for me to meet, but I’m going to do my best. Speaking of Book of Shadows 4, it continues to get a lot of positive feedback. I just wish you folks who write me such wonderful fan mail would post your thoughts on Amazon or Goodreads, too. Reviews truly are the lifeblood of indie authors, such as myself. You might think your comments aren’t worth leaving if they’re only a couple of sentences, but, trust me, even one sentence reviews can make a difference. The more positive reviews, the better. Of course, I only want you to leave honest reviews so if you didn’t like one of my books please feel free to leave a review stating that. If you could indicate what I could’ve done better, I would appreciate it, but, if not, no worries.

On another note, I wanted to mention that my friend Bill’s cat, Magique, was found. He was actually hiding under Bill’s bed for three days, shy about getting to know his new home! When he finally did start coming out, he turned into quite the terror, trashing the house on several occasions, but I understand he’s calmed down and adjusted well now. And, yes, Magique is the French word for magic. However, he was already named that when Bill adopted him. So, it’s a strange coincidence that my friend’s cat wound up with a French name and an even stranger one that it should be the word for magic, which is one of my favorite things, as you well know.
