My First Review…and it’s from Publisher’s Weekly!

Wow. Just wow! Writers both eagerly await and dread book reviews. I’m no exception. This morning my wait ended. Spirited_with_Quote_LoResI have my first review for SPIRITED (A Tidewater Novel). And it’s good. REALLY GOOD! In fact, I’m grinning from ear-to-ear and dancing around the room making the dog bark! I’m certain my family thinks I’ve lost my mind.

Here’s the link to actual review from PW:

This is my favorite part! “Behre’s exuberant debut paranormal romance is lighthearted and easygoing, with a slow-moving subplot that promises to spark future books.”

To celebrate my first review, I’m going to give away an ARC and some swag of SPIRITED.  One winner will win the ARC and SWAG, five winners will win SWAG.

Tell me, how do you celebrate?
