I can't help but share my news! I've just learned that Romantic Times Magazine has given my book, No Place For A Lady, a 4 1/2 star review! At first I wasn't sure that it meant alot, but my marketing director said that that's the highest review that they give. She said the magazine is considered "the Bible" for readers for book buying, and has a circulation of 100,000 readers.

That's pretty wonderful for a new writer, and definitely wasn't something I was expecting. I feel very honored. I've had so much support from my family,critique partners, my publisher and agent. God's hand has been involved in the entire process. The one thing I want my readers to come away with is that Christ will reveal new truths to them through reading my story. Nothing could give me greater pleasure! :)

Jill, thanks for stoopping by. It's pretty amazing to get that review. I received my copy of my book this Thursday and it seems a bit unreal, and I'm very grateful.:)

Hi Brenda!

I was wondering if there was any chance to obtain a review copy of No Place for a Lady for review on my blog. I publish my reviews on my blog - Books, Movies and Chinese Food (, Amazon, CBD and I am also a top 1000 reviewer on Amazon where many of my reviews have been spotlighted. My blog reaches over a thousand visitors each month.

I'll be looking forward to reading your new book whichever way I can get my hands on it!

Thank you and God bless,

Deborah Khuanghlawn
