I got this absolutely fabulous review of Romance Diaries the other day, written by a keen young reader, Nell Shepherd, who just loved the book. With her permission, I’m sharing it here.
Review by Nell Shepherd:
The Romance Diaries was a fun and interesting romance story. It was thrilling and captured you right away because of the mysterious emails the main character Ruby kept getting. It was captivating. I couldn’t put it down.
I liked the fact that a character mentioned at the start of the book came back to surprise everyone! I highly rate this book as one for teenage girls, like me, who love romance stories. It portrays teenage social Dramas and the funny events that every teenage girl experiences. I just loved this book. I would give it an eleven out of ten! And I can’t wait for the next Romance Diary!
You can now read the full text of a lovely little pre-publication review of Romance Diaries: Ruby, originally posted for subscribers on the Australian Bookseller and Publisher magazine’s website last year but now available to read freely here.
Had a lot of fun over the last few weeks going over the copy edit of Romance Diaries: Stella(out in September). The editor working on it with me just loves the book(she also edited Ruby) and it has been a most enjoyable process. Stella’s a very different character to Ruby; less bouncy, more isolated, and she has some large issues on her hands, not the least of which is trying to measure up to her mother’s legacy as a media mogul! There’s is a small link in Stella to the first book; hope readers will have fun spotting it.
Stella goes off to typesetter then and then I’ll see first pages. Meanwhile I’m seeing Ruby in just about every bookshop I go to, which is very pleasing!
