The Launch Team have received the first of their newsletters and are busy reading, ready to release their reviews next week. I’m happy to have more to the team – if you’re interested, contact me here.
One of the highlights of this busy week has been the interview I did with Julie Nelson, Rich Witch Artisan Perfumer it was so much fun to share together how we brew tea and bring in the magic. I’m not sure when it will be “live” but I’ll let you know as soon as it is.
|And finally some editorial reviews arrived this week. |
As authors we sit on the edge of our seats from the moment our books are uploaded, wondering if anyone is going to read what we write, never mind, like it! It’s one of the reasons we use Beta Readers. So it was both a relief and a delight to receive these reviews…
5 star Review – Jamie Michele
The Angel Tea House is a unique novel in its approach to wrapping a story around the metaphysical. This is elevated further by Melody R. Green’s colorful storytelling, town atmosphere, and well-developed characters. Maggie’s and Lucy’s strengths paralleled with unseen forces, the power of conviction, and the blend of everyday life with the mystical are what make The Angel Tea House an engaging read.
5 Star Review – Asher Syed
Maggie McCready Travelling Tarot Adventures looks to be a charmed series and The Angel Tea House as my first read was a delight! In some ways, and especially with Maggie’s transient lifestyle, it feels like a more contemporary and reader-accessible story than Joanne Harris’ Chocolat. Set in sleepy England, Maggie’s unwavering dedication to her mission and reliance on her intuition, cards, and spirit guides make her more of a force. Author Melody R. Green employs plenty of takeaways to help us assess our real-world lives, and with a series of tea blends in the back to boot, I’m looking forward to seeing what Maggie is up to in the next town.
5 star Review – Lisa Marie
I found it to be a page turner. I quickly became engaged with all the characters, Alistair being my favorite. Major plot, good vs evil and how it plays out within the different planes of our existence. Amazing, never read anything quite like it and I became hooked…just needed to know how it would end. Thoroughly enjoyed each twist and turn, the often-vivid pictures painted in my mind with her words and descriptives. Oh, and I adore the tea blend list in the back. Made the story all the cozier, I do so love a good mystery and cuppa tea-Melody R. Green delivered!.
