Release Day Elation!

What an awesome, amazing birthday you all gave me!  Thank you to all the wonderful reviews penance. has been receiving! Also, thank you to everyone that has purchased their copy!

This is how I feel right now…


Oh how I miss Nathan on Misfits…

It has been beyond surreal to hear all of the wonderful comments.  I have continued to have great sales and the thing that keeps them coming is all the honest reviews I keep receiving.

There are several up on GoodReads already and every time a new review or rating pops up I can’t wait to see what  is said.  It is a little terrifying at times too! As I imagine it is for every author.

Okay, now we are going to enter into the INFP mode where Sarah sees shiny things and her mind drifts from the point of my post…Author… that is so still crazy to think about… I am doing something I have always wanted to do! I wrote a flipping book and people are reading it!

Okay, end INFP mode… back to the amazing reviews!

M.H. Soars  said, “Both Hannah and Wynn are extremely layered characters and Sarah does an excellent job telling us their story without using cliched settings or stereotyping. Hannah and Wynn’s love story is believable because it developed in an organic way. There’s plenty of sexual tension and I admire and hate Sarah at the same time for making me wait so long for the infamous first kiss. Gosh, that was torture! lol… Penance is definitely a gem in the genre and I highly recommend it to everyone who loves an epic love story.”

Kristen at Pretty Little Pages had so much to say about it, I didn’t know which part to quote! So, I will just share how she ended her review, but I expect you to click on that link I just posted to read the whole thing, because it was wonderful. “This is a beautiful book. Sarah has so much talent as a writer. She tucked away all of these hidden gems into the story. She told the story of two people who fall in love against the odds. Am I gushing? I think so. I don’t know how else to tell you guys. You should read this book! It’s not like the usual offering of NA books, and I think that fans of the genre will love this different perspective. “

Now, after I just posted the quotes from those reviews, there is something I have to share.  Bloggers are freaking amazing! The other Authors I have met are freaking amazing! Readers are freaking amazing! I am such a noob to this little online community and the people I have already met are so freaking amazing! Okay, should I use something different to describe them as other than freaking amazing?

Yes, I should. They are a wonderful and welcoming group of people and I have nothing but praise for them. So in closing my overly excited post, I want to thank each and every one of you that have listened to me ramble about my book. I want to thank each and every one of you that gave my book a chance read and for telling people what you thought of it. I appreciate each and every one of you!  So, I will give you a cyberspace hug!
