Well, it feels a bit more official that I'm a published author now that I actually have a couple reviews to post.
RE: Catch a Falling Star

Review by Emily83176

Review by Elisa-Rolle

One of my friends thought that this second review might upset me because it wasn't a 'glowing' recommendation. I can't disagree with the reviewers comments though, because Catch a Falling Star was meant to come across as something you would find showing on the Hallmark Channel. (For those of you who might not know what that station is, basically they show sappy mushy love stories that leave you with tears in your eyes.) It's a feel-good Christmas story, nothing more. Her remark that Cris is naive is dead on. How many fresh college graduates do you know that aren't naive? I know I was when I was in my early/mid-twenties.

So no, I have no hard feelings to the reviewers, Kasha. ;-) *hugs*

I get comments sometimes, like on "Caught Running," that it's not "real" or "serious" and so it's not good. There's no realistic angst.

BWEH? It's a romance! Like you said - Hallmark Channel...Harlequin Romance!

Not everything has to be realistic. If I wanted realistic, would I be looking for a happy romance to start with?

I really liked this story. It just missed out on my top 5 sweet stories from the anthology (it was no6 - sorry!). I loved the bit at the beginning where Cris practically falls into Logan's arms - what a way to meet!

Discouraging reviews can be very disheartening so take on board what you think is constructive and ignore the rest. After all, we are all different and what one person will see as unrealistic will strike a chord in another person.

I think I'd be pretty happy with the reviews you got. I also have a tendency to write "naive" characters, so I'll probably love Cristan when I get around to reading the story.

I'm scared to death of getting my reviews, whenever they come out.
