Book Signing and Latest Book Reviews of BANDITS

Okay, here's another week of excitement. Yeah, I've been furiously working on editing my MG novel and outlining a new series while anxiously waiting for reviews to come in on BANDITS.


This was my first official bookstore signing of the year. It's a finishing off of my tour of THE PACK, my upper YA, but I was giving away a free ARC copy of BANDITS. It was a great crowd and I sold ebooks and paperbacks at the event. The owner even invited me back for the summer book festival. I was so honored.

Me with Eva, local Book Blogger. There were 3 other great Local Authors in attendance!


I can say that I'm humbled to the point of tears. Yep, tears, that I got emails regarding reviews of Bandits.

Here's the first one:

Please drop in and comment.

Eva's Sanctuary:

5 out of 5 stars,


The other is from Librarian, Dawn Lewallen

Her email quote: "Finished Bandits this weekend. LOVED it!!!! I especially liked how you were able to show the character's disgust and frustration without having them go into a swearing tirade and the romance between Jade and Daniel was gentle and romantic. A perfect YA novel!!"


So if you want to review BANDITS, let me know :-D We still need some great blog reviewers to take a peek at it.

Also, stay tuned it goes for official review at Foreword Magazine this week...*I'm biting my nails for that one*

Darby Karchut said...

Way to go, LM! And let us know when you hear from Foreword Magazine!

Kelly Hashway said...

LM, that's great! I'm so happy for you!

LM Preston said...

I'm still walking on clouds :-D thanks so much for congrats they truly mean a lot to me.

Elin said...

That teaser is truly breathtaking, and the gentle romance sounds like something from classic books, and I'll definitely love it.

Buffy Andrews said...

You amaze me. You go, go, go and never stop going. Like the Energize Bunny. Congrats to you on all your wonderful achievements. Have a great day.

Elizabeth Kolodziej said...

Congrats girl! So awesome for you!

Beth said...

LM, if you come to WI you can be my new best friend!!!! LOL. We never have YA writers come here and when they do come they're in affiliation with a school. Sucks for grown ups who love YA!

I finally got through to the comment form...I've been having some trouble with this... :)

I thought I left a message yesterday, but I don't see it. I would love to read and review Bandits for you. Send me a message?

And watched the video and I am lovin' Jade's hair.

Good for you on these positive reviews, also. :)

Congrats LM!! A signing @ Barnes & Noble? I'll try my best not to seethe with jealousy ;o)

I'm late to the party. Sorry! But I was bound and determined to make it in.

Congrats, LM! It's so exciting. And you did such a good job setting up your table.

I'm especially impressed that you sold ebooks along with print. How did you do that?

Love the pictures. Keep 'em coming.
