THREE STORIES...ONE READER'S REVIEW
CHAMPAGNE AFTERNOON...one of my shortest but hottest stories. I added two more of my short stories for fairness of length...which of my nine others to date did I send her?
BEYOND YESTERDAY and
FOREVER WITH YOU.
Her name is Carole Sutton and she is a mystery, suspense writer from across the pond, now living Down Under.
Yesterday she sent me her reaction to my work APOLOGIZING for taking so long...a
heartbeat of time is a LONG time? You ARE a treasure Carole.
Life has this way of getting in the middle of all our intentions and our
To Do Lists. Such happened with Carole.
She read my three little tales though and graciously reviewed each one...
Let me preface this by saying the reviews of READERS fill me with pride...so let me proudly share Carole's words.
Of the three stories I really enjoyed Beyond Yesterday most. I found the back story of the grandmother really interesting and absorbing. I write crime fiction, murder mysteries and found the plotting of this one touched the spot.
I enjoyed Champagne Afternoon -- I have no idea how to write erotica, so it was interesting to see how you do it. I remember many many years ago stripping off for the nudist beach and could relate to your characters early misgivings. Though it didn't take long to become used to the idea -- but in those days it was all rather sexless!
Forever With You -- I loved the ending. All warm and fuzzy. The story reminded me of the Lady Chatterly's Lover -- which was banned in the UK at the time.
Well, best of luck with your future stories,
all the best,
Oh My Goodness! Being compared to D.H. Lawrence and
LADY CHATTERLY'S LOVER? A CLASSIC...WOW!
Thank you Carole...and for those interested in learning more about Carole and her works of creative ingenuity, please follow this LINK to her website.
Again, THANK YOU CAROLE. I am so glad you won my books.
