No Strings Attached has been out for a week, and here's my first round of shoutouts to the people who've been so generous with their time (and money).
Thank you, Chachic, Tina, Lee, Layla, Hazel N, Tin, M and popandcrackle!
And to address a few things that I read/heard in the first week:
From Chachic's review: "The focus isn’t the build up of the love story but rather the complications involved in their relationship."
Very true, although not what I intended. Let me just share -- when I got back into a romance groove, I decided to write three love stories based on the three different love interests I felt I could write about. (My Imaginary Ex, Fairy Tale Fail, and Love Your Frenemies represent all that.) No Strings Attached was a fun thing I tried based on a friend's suggested concept, but it happened to get noticed first.
From Tina's review: "I liked how Carla seemed like a very real person, and her friends offer enough contrast to her for the readers to see the different sides of the story without telling it to them in a long monologue of sorts from the heroine."
Thank you. I did base her on a real person, who would likely never do what Carla did. Oh well, fiction. :)
