Thanks to the great reviewers out there!

Just a quick shout out to all of you who take time to write reviews of my books. I really adore you for sharing your thoughts. It really helps an author when someone says great things about their book. I’ve been sharing reviews on my Facebook page, just to give a shout out to those who have taken the time to leave them. But that’s a bit scattered and random. So, I thought today I’d just post some great reviews here in one spot that I’ve gotten over the past few weeks. If you haven’t checked out any of these books, be sure to.


Concealed_FC_BNG5 Stars – A Book Any Reader Would Enjoy “RJ Crayton writes an amazingly touching young adult book that takes in coming of age along with surviving in a strange, hostile world.”

5 Stars – Five Stars “Thoroughly enjoyed the story. Makes you want to keep reading.”

5 Stars – Good Read “The concept is good as well as the characters. I hope the secrets will come to light in the next book…exposed.”

5 Stars – Excellent Writing, I enjoyed this series of books “I really enjoyed this story a lot. The author had great timing, and knew how to keep the story moving to make you want to continue reading.”

4 Stars – Great start to a YA apocalyptic thriller! “Concealed keeps you guessing from the get go! The virus is a great twist on the genre. The story line pulls you in and whets your appetite!”

Life First

01_Life-First_darkjacketpants_reduced5 Stars  – Great Story “I thought this was a great start to a series…  I was anxious to see where the story went so got the other two in this trilogy as soon as I finished this one.”

5 Stars –  I enjoyed this Trilogy from start to finish “The characters were quite well developed by the end of the series, without any of their features feeling trite. I did not feel like this series was predictable, which made for a welcome adventure!”

5 Stars – Life First is a fast paced and exciting story. …  “A definite eye opener for what happens then a fanatical idea becomes the law of the land. I can’t wait to read Second Life”

4 Stars – Excellent – definitely worth reading!  “The setting of this story is terrifying – and especially so because it’s so darn believable. The author does an outstanding job of presenting her (VERY well thought out) dystopian future culture, where living organ donation is mandated by the state, and only the sociopathic criminal would dare to attempt to avoid their ‘obligation to society.'”

Prophecy of Light – Trapped

01prophecyoflighttrapped_2003005 Stars – A Delightful Story Appropriate for All Audiences “Her main characters live and breathe in color and movement, as does her scenery. This book contains no violence or sex. It’s a well-written, delightful story appropriate for all audiences.”

4 Stars – Magical story “This story is about the war between good and evil. This is the beginning of a story arc about a little girl and her magic.”

4 Stars – A great story with twists “A great story with twists, adventure and … wait for it … No Romance! As much as I love the romance in most stories, this one is actually better without it.”

Thanks again, to all the reviewers. I’ve so enjoyed reading the reviews!

      Thanks, Charles. It’s nice to have some good recent ones. There’s a couple not good ones out there, too, but we’re about looking at the positive here, not the negative. 🙂
