3 Star Review for Bizarre Life of Sydney Sedrick

My first novel, Bizarre Life of Sydney Sedrick, was reviewed by Coffee Time Romance. They gave it a 3 star rating on Amazon.com, and I couldn't be more pleased, here's the review:

Coffee Time Romance
This review is from: Bizarre Life of Sydney Sedrick (Kindle Edition) This story has a lot of potential. I liked Sydney a lot. She has spunk and wit, and the guts to stand up to some pretty scary creatures. Her chemistry with Blake is very hot, and I would have liked the author to have done more with their attraction. The vampires were also an interesting group. I just had trouble understanding The Selected's powers. It is nice to be able to tell when a rogue paranormal is in the area, but throwing up and passing out are not typical of the tough heroine Sydney is, otherwise. These things really need a lot more explanation since a heroine with these severe faults will not survive very long in such a dangerous environment.

You ask, why would an author by so pleased with a 3 star review? She must be loony, well, yes, I am, but there's a serious side to me too, and that side wants nothing more than to continue writing, and to improve with every story that I tell! The above review tells me that I have a character that a review likes, that means my readers will probably like her too, and that's key to engaging the reader and hooking them to my novels :)

I'll keep writing, happy reading to everyone!
