Website Update: You can now pre-order Minutes Before Sunset‘s paperback via Barnes & Noble by clicking here. I’m so excited!  

On May 23, I received the first printed copy of Minutes Before Sunset

As I said on my Facebook Author Page, these moments are unforgettable, and I am grateful I got to spend this time with my father.

Speaking of reviews: I want to thank two wonderful ladies for their insightful reviews.

Thank you to Ky Grabowski (Welcome to the Inner Workings of My Mind) 

5 Stars: May Contain Spoilers

“…Shannon’s ability to reveal answers that many authors often leave till the end is a great strength. I think it was also a risk that paid off. We know so much about the characters, the history, and the future before we’re even half way in. Shannon touches on everything readers want and gives the illusion that the knowledge we’ve given is all we need. It’s far from that though – there’s a rich, capturing story following and don’t for one second assume you have all the answers…”

Thank you to Sarah Ray (She has three blogs: click her name, Ray of Light, or Heart of Flight) Her novel, Sorcerer’s Vendetta, can be found by clicking the link. 

5 Stars: Shade is good

“…It’s a very engaging read, enjoyable for me even though it’s geared for the YA audience and I’m hardly that. Eric (Shoman) and Jessica are believable characters, easy to empathize with, and the other characters are interesting and colorful also…”

Read the rest here via Amazon.

Both of these ladies are extremely talented writers, and I definitely recommend checking them out at their blogs and/or other websites. I really appreciate their guided honesty and tremendous support.

If you want to do a review, you can receive a free ebook from my publisher. Just email ShannonAThompson@aol.com expressing interest.

I’m very excited to see who wins the free paperbacks, joining L. Marie, who is being upgraded to a free signed copy as well. She took place in a previous competition, and she’ll be receiving her paperback along with five others as soon as they arrive in the mail (perhaps even sooner than when the paperback will be available for purchasing!)

I’m looking forward to the future! The second book in A Timely Death trilogy, Seconds Before Sunrise, is already in the editing process, and it’s expected to be available this Fall. So I’ll be working hard to upgrade this website in the near future to support more book pages and extras.

Goodreads Quote of the Day: “His resonating stare fluttered through my memory, and I shivered. I hadn’t seen kindness in his pupils. I only saw intensity, and I hated to admit it, but he was beyond intimidating. He was overwhelming.” (Jessica, Minutes Before Sunset.)

P.S. Have a great weekend everyone!
