On today’s “Book and a Chat” my very special guest is… “well ME.

Unfortunately my planned guest David Liss was not able to make today’s show, so I chatted on my own for thirty minutes about books, selling, marketing, future guests, reviews, new pets and anything else I could think to chat about.

Check out today’s program and see how I did.




After the show I was checking a few locations and found a fresh “FIVE STAR” review at Amazon.

One of those items that keeps us authors going.

5 stars The Epitome of a Sweet and Modern Teenage Relationship, July 10, 2009

Young Adult/Romance is one of my favorite genres, just because I love to fantasize and dream of something like “Across the Pond” by Storyheart. I found it hilarious within the first few pages, upon discovering the nickname “Brit,” and my chest tightened when I neared the end of this book (which i won’t reveal because I know that I hate spoilers… and it’s not exactly unexpected, either)
This book is a short, sweet read with an almost modern-fairy tale like romance. I would be able to read it over and over again without tiring of it (i’ve read it twice already)and I believe that Brit and Fred (Brittany and Frederick) are a lovely couple and the epitome of teen romance.
As an American, it was entertaining when I read about Fred’s troubles with the food. Who would’ve thought that I would laugh out loud just because of someone’s British reaction to “beagles (bagels)” and blueberries?
I recommend this book to anybody who is a fan of young romance and a sweet tale.

Thank you

Across the Pond a book for the young and young at heart. YA, teen, romance what ever you like to call it.

With the book now being available in book stores I have started to receive some new reviews from the book launch.

Here is what a couple of readers have said about the book today…


Reviewed by Angela Simmon

With characters so lively you can find each one in your own hometown, Storyheart has written a tale that all teens will fall in love with. A definite homerun, with short chapters, quick-wit and believable situations that teens can relate to. With a brilliant blend of American and English this is a spot on book.

With hilarious language translation problems and a repeat performance by the garlic lady, you cannot go wrong with this book. Although it has mild language it is a perfect read for any young adult. Chocked full of teenage drama, new love, and tons of sports, this is a book for boys or girls.

TCM Reviews for Book,

Reviewed by Kate Greenwood

Storyheart’s British heritage reveals itself as he highlights the differences and similarities between life in England and the U.S. while keenly showing that teenagers are virtually the same everywhere.

It is a short story but full of fun and sure to propel your teenager into summer reading!
