Keep Your Fingers Crossed
Get ready for some exciting things to happen in Mattie's life when BOARD STIFF comes out in March 2014. And if all goes according to the plans that were discussed today, I should have some good news to report on the Mattie Winston front.
It's always a little nerve-wracking when you have a first title coming out, or any title for that matter. Will readers like it? Will reviewers be kind or cruel? Or worse yet, will they just ignore me? Will I become the laughing stock of the reading/writing community? That first review is key for me. If it's good , I can handle the bad, and I'm happy to say that my first review for MURDER ON THE ROCKS is a great one! It earned their highest rating. Here it is: “The first book in the Mack’s Bar Mystery series is a hit! Abbott keeps things fast and interesting, and her strong and likable heroine has a lot to deal with. Throw in a bunch of would-be crime-solving barflies, and you have the makings for a great ride.” – RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars, TOP PICK
