Library Journal Review of Diary

Posted by Kathy Carmichael Thursday, December 31, 2009 on 10:11 AM

I fully admit that I'm a complete dweeb when it comes to reviews for my books. Will people like my story? Will it be well received? Will they wonder if I'm totally nuts? I go through the whole self-doubts gamut of emotion.

My first mystery novel, Diary of a Confessions Queen, is due out in February and reviews are beginning to come in. I also fully admit that I've been very nervous about this book simply because I had never written a mystery before. Library Journal has reviewed it in their January 2010 issue and I'm thrilled (and relieved they didn't once mention the author's mental health). Here's a snippet:

From Library Journal: Mystery fans who enjoy bright women working through their problems and solving crimes along the way will love Amy. Carmichael (Hot Flash) knows how to deliver a zinger of a tale with plenty of action.

Since Andrew has to work on Christmas Day, he, Katie and my grandpuppy came home for an early Christmas with us. We had a wonderful time!


Another great review!

This one is from Harriet Klausner! She posted it in several locations on the web, but you can find the full review here. * 5 stars * “A fun wacky suspense thriller”
I'm thrilled :) And I also have to admit that review time is crazy-making for me. I so want people to like my books and once reviews start coming in, I begin craving more. Very sad that I'm such a dweeb!
If you're an author, is review time crazy-making for you, too?


Lunch with my niece

My niece is in first grade and during my recent trip to Dallas, I was able to have lunch with her. It was great fun!

I'm in the process of cleaning up photos and will be uploading lots in the coming days!


Diary of a Confessions Queen Reviews!

I'm very excited.

I received my very first review from Publishers Weekly!

Here's a quote:
Sprightly humor and eccentric characters invigorate this chick lit cozy from romance writer Carmichael (Hot Flash).

Plus yesterday morning I received my first review of Diary of a Confessions Queen from Wil A. Emerson at Crime and Suspense Magazine. Here's a quote: This is a story for readers who love layers of kick-ass humor in a cozy mystery. It's a winner for Carmichael and her distinctive style.

How cool is that?
