Oh, yes. I Did Record a Video.

26 Mar

Before I share my latest video (and by latest, I mean first video in a year), I have great interviews and reviews to share, and I hope you check them out! All of these readers are fantastic, and their websites are always entertaining.

First, A Reader’s Review both interviewed me and reviewed Seconds Before Sunrise. An exclusive excerpt is included in the interview, and the review starts off with, “It has a compelling and addictive narrative which explores the elemental themes of good versus evil, love and self-sacrifice and fate versus free-will. All lovers of paranormal and fantasy romance are advised to check out this series so that they do not miss out on a fantastic reading experience.”

After that, Write Out Loud shared how his daughter and he have been reading The Timely Death Trilogy together, and that is just the most wonderful thing to hear! I love when people come together through their love for reading, and I am beyond honored that a father and daughter are reading my work together. You can read his review of Seconds Before Sunrise here, but here’s a sneak peek, “Over the last few years I’ve read too many books by older adult authors write cringe-worthy dialogue and I worried that young Thompson (who is only in her early twenties) wouldn’t be up to it.” Find out if his worries were confirmed or if I overcame them through my latest novel.

And last but not least, Coffee Shop Reader reviewed Seconds Before Sunrise, too. (So man reviews are pouring in!) What was her favorite quote? ““The fantasized kiss was stolen time from the dreams…” If you want to check out more quotes from Seconds Before Sunrise, click here, but click the link above to visit her wonderful review.

Now – onto my video:

Thanks for watching my video! I now have a YouTube channel, so feel free to subscribe. I will post more videos in the future, but – as of now – I am ready to PARTY! Can’t wait to see everyone there.


If you are wanting to check out Minutes Before Sunset, click here. It’s only $3.89 right now, and Seconds Before Sunrise is also on Amazon. Feel free to read away. In preparation, I have torn my closet apart in order to dress like the books:


And I’ve shared one of my secrets: I have a knife collection. Below is a photo I did when I was 17 that was inspired by The Timely Death Trilogy. That is my machete. And, yes, I’m fighting myself, and those pants are from Thailand. I believe I was 17 here.

See you tomorrow!


P.S. Thank you so very, very, very much – sorry. I had to say it again. ;]

    Thanks for the plug for the review Shannon! I loved the video too – great to hear your voice and see your enthusiasm. You wholeheartedly deserve the success your books are enjoying and I look forward to watching your increasing ‘stardom’ as the years roll on. 🙂

      Thank you for reviewing, reading, and commenting. 😀 You are so kind! I will have to figure out how to flip my videos around next.

    Oh, so that’s what you sound like, lol. Great video and thanks for the invite!

      Yep. lol That is me. I am not the best at videos – hence why it’s flipped – but I try :]

    Nice video! I snorted at the “Kindle, of course” bit. And I love the clothes gimmick – what a creative way to celebrate the release of your second book.
    Machete collection? Remind me not to give you a bad review! 🙂

    I hadn’t watched any of your videos before so it was lovely to watch you and hear your voice. 🙂

    Knife collection and a coffee addiction, sounds like a sitcom premise. Looking forward to reading one of your books when I find the time to stop writing mine. Loved the YouTube spot!

    Congradulations on your book release.
