Never judge a book…

I had two HUGE shocks last night. The first one, I am happy to report, was the through-the-roof sales of Eternity! Thanks to Debbi at eReadernews for promoting it yesterday 🙂 The other shock was…my husband. Reading Eternity. I KNOW. It’s shocking! Well, for more reasons than one.

I was nervous to have him read it. Like most authors, I think that my writing could be better, and my husband is NOT afraid to share his opinions, so I didn’t want him to read it and then tear it apart piece by piece. So when he stated last night that he was going to start reading it, I was happy, but terrified. I snuggled into bed with the Stephen King that I’m reading, and tried to ignore him as he read Eternity.

I woke up at 5 o’clock this morning, and…he was still awake! He had been reading ALL NIGHT LONG. He looked over at me, and said, “This is GREAT! I couldn’t put it down!”. I couldn’t do anything but stare at him. “Really?” I asked, and I must have had a look on my face like I didn’t understand him.

“YES! I mean, there are some things I would change (read: explosions and beheadings), but I never in a million years would have thought I would enjoy this!” He replied, shaking his Kindle in the air like a preacher waving a bible.

Now, that doesn’t sound like much of an endorsement, but coming from a total geek/gamer/blow-things-up kind of guy, it’s glowing praise indeed! Plus, he hadn’t even been to sleep yet! He literally stayed up All.Night.Long to read my book, and he genuinely ENJOYED it! What a perfect way to start off my morning!

On that note, find out what all the fuss is about, and pick up your copy of Eternity today for just .99 cents!

  1. Awww, that’s so sweet!! I don’t think I would be brave enough to even tell my husband the details of my book so that he could find it to read it. I guess that’s why I’m not a writer. I’ll stick with baking him cookies, I know that’s fail proof complimenting.

    • He’s writing a novel as well, and is constantly after me to read what he’s writing (and build his Twitter page, and FB author page, and blog page…), that I figured, what the hell, he needs to read my stuff too! I’ll cringe when he gets to the sex scenes…why, I don’t know.
