Whoo hoo! First review!

I was all set to write about synopses, but I had to run to the mall and I picked up the latest issue of Romantic Times, to discover a four-star review for A LOVER'S KISS, the book that should be out any day now!

And I quote:

"Moore continues to captivate with her latest historical....The conflict pulls readers in, and the villain is most definitely a surprise."

Yeah! There's also a nod to Buggy, whose book I'll be starting any day now: "The best friend almost steals the show with his endearing ways..." Almost, but not quite, because the man gets his own story, so I literally sent him out of town for a bit.

One quibble: I'm sorry they gave away a key element of the plot that has to do with the heroine's brother. Ah well, you can't have everything.

I'm nearly done my workshop material, but not quite, and I need to put the review quote on my website, so look for one of the most common, major mistakes I see in synopses tomorrow. Because when I mention something three times in a handout? I'd call that a major problem.
