Now, I know it’s not like me to hang here and tell you to buy a book. Unless it’s mine, cause, hey, ya should, cause, well… it’s mine.
But anyway… Let me tell you about this book called Darkside Sun.
As you may have noticed from my several reviews, I am a big Jocelyn Adams fan. I think she’s awesome.
Almost two years ago, I gushed when I tripped over her in a chat room. (She was posting under a pseudonym, and I didn’t even know I’d been talking to her – funny story I’ll have to tell you some day) Anyway, we became cyber-buddies, and she’s been uber helpful with advice about do’s and don’ts in the publishing industry.
Last year, she entrusted me with a beta copy of “DARKSIDE SUN”. Let me tell you, I was floored. When I finished it, I cried… and wrote this blog post: “There is a book out there that is better than yours.”
And yes, this book was contracted soon after by my target publisher. Yes, I celebrated. This book totally deserves it.
A month or so ago, I was contacted and asked if Entangled could use a quote from my beta comments on the novel in their marketing. “Sure,” I said… not even remembering what I’d said.
Imagine my surprise when the cover hit Amazon:
See that white writing in the upper left hand corner? Let me zoom that in for you.
All that stuff they say about making connections and stuff… yeah, it’s true. my name is on the front of a novel that I personally believe will be the next “big thing.”
And let me tell you, I couldn’t be happier. There are not too many novels out there that I would recommend this much… or slap my name on the cover… but this is one. You will be drawn in from the first pages, and biting your nails until the unbelievable end.
Even if you don’t like this genre, I’d recommend this for the simple reason of soaking in Jocelyn Adam’s writing style. She is everything I want to be when I grow up, and I am trilled to death that she’s finally received big-name recognition.
Darkside Sun is on sale for the next few days in a promotional blitz. For $.99 on Amazon. I am sure you will not be disappointed. It doesn’t get too “paranormal” right away, and everyone from contemporary to horror can learn a little soaking her style in.
Even though I read the beta, I am hopping over now to pick up my copy. I can’t wait to see the final product. I hear it’s even better. I’m prepared to be wowed all over again.

That’s what I love about this gig. You just never know …
Isn’t it cool?
Definitely sounds intriguing, and how awesome it must be for you to see your recommendation on the front cover! That would really be so cool. 🙂
I’m pretty excited. It’s neat.
Sounds wonderful. I’ll head over to check it out!
Let me know what you think!
You caught me. Haven’t even had breakfast yet and already I’ve been shopping. Bought the book. 😀
Now I’m very interested in what you think. This is not your genre, right?
Thanks for asking, Jennifer. No, this is not my genre, but I’m always interested in the good writing. Like to see what I can learn in any way. 🙂 You gave such a glowing review, and the investment in dollars is hard to ignore.
I was a little shocked at the price, but it is just a release day blitz from my understanding.
That’s how I saw it. After your glowing review, I had to see the language for myself. 😎
I’m totally blushing right now, you know. >.< You're awesome. Thanks for giving me the encouragement to put this one out there. Couldn't have done it without you.
Piff! Oh, I think you could.
I can’t wait to get a hold of this one. I guess I’ll have to break down and spend a buck today as Ms. Adams is a fave of mine, too.
It will be the best buck you ever spent
Downloaded and already immersed. 🙂
Ok, you got me! Just finished a dense nonfiction book, and I’m ready for a good novel. Thanks.
Let me know what you think! I’m starting it tonight too.
