4.5 Hearts = Happy Dance

15 Mar

Back in the States I’m stopping for the next two days @ Keeping Up With The Rheinlander’s and I truly welcome the rest. For today Melissa posted a review for A World Apart; tomorrow there is a guest post scheduled about superstitions and the belief that surrounds them. In her review Melissa says: “I went through the range of emotions reading this book ~ Fear, Love, Hate, Anger, and Sadness (teary eyes and all). This tells me that Skiba know how to write an emotional power packed read that is believable! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it to others!”

Thank you so very much, Melissa for the wonderful words!

P.S: I have to admit that I’ve done the happy dance during this book tour more than I’ve danced in the past few years. Should I try my luck with Dancing with the Stars?…

Guest Post and Review @ Jersey Girl Book Reviews

17 Feb

As part of the Virtual Book Tour for A World Apart Kathleen at Jersey Girl Book Reviews has a guest post about a special character in the book, not a fictional character but a living, breathing one. A real character  in a fiction book? Well yes… a tiny one. Curious about it? All you have to do stop by  Jersey Girl Book Reviews and you won’t be disappointed.

She also posted her review of A World Apart. I have to admit my stomach was up in a knot, excited to see how she found my book. And to my relief, she nailed it. In her words A World Apart is “The complexity of the characters and their strong personalities are realistic, their interactions which each other are fascinating, you can’t help but be intrigued by them. The description of Romania, Iraq, the military bases and the war zone activities is astounding, I could close my eyes and feel like I was transported there alongside Cassandra, David, Robert and the other characters in the story. When a story can transport you to another place and make you feel the full range of emotions, then you know that the story is one that you can’t put down until the very end.”

Can’t thank her enough for the wonderful words!
