The journey to publish your first book is filled with so many first experiences that your friends and family quickly become sick of you mentioning them all. You have your first contract, first edits, first cover, first copy edits, first proof read…first everything! And each of them is equally exciting to you–if not your friends and family. Although, I’m blessed with a great support network of people who do the Muppet flail with me for each first experience.
And if they’re just faking it after the sixth or seventh celebration, that’s fine too.
As we get closer to the November 3 release date (First Release Date!), VIKING WARRIOR RISING reviews are starting to pop up and it’s another exhilarating experience for me. It’s such an honor and to see my name and title next to talented authors I’ve read for years.
Here are some lines from reviews of the book:
“Bradley’s debut blends Norse mythology and evil government experiments into an unusual paranormal…the immortal Viking premise is perfect for paranormal romance readers who are looking for something different.” ~Publishers Weekly
“Bradley has created a fascinating world that merges Norse mythology and modern-day society with plenty of action. Both Naya and Leif are strong, interesting, characters, making them well-matched.” ~RT Book Reviews
And so far, the book has a 4.33 avg over at Goodreads and the avid romance fans over there can be hard to please, so that’s an amazing score.
