Hi everyone :)
DFF has a new reveiw!! YAY!! :)
Thanks so much to April for responding to a contest announcement and purchasing DFF! But then--MUCHO THANK YOU for reading and reveiwing--and then THANK YOU BUNCHES for the ROCKIN' REVIEW! :)
Here's part of what she wrote, but please--give April a visit to read the rest:
Cafe of Dreams Blogcritic
"Do you love a great ghost story? Do you love a book that will not let you out of its clutches once you have opened its cover? How about a story that is so engrossing that time passes like the blink of an eye? If you answered "yes" to any or all of these questions, I suggest you run — quickly — to pick up a copy of DFF: Dead Friends Forever by J.R. Turner. In all honesty, this is one of the best ghost/paranormal stories I have read in a very long time. Yes, it is geared toward young adults, but at the age of 35 I loved it. DFF contains suspense, horror, realistic and believable ghost and paranormal occurrences (yes, I am a believer in such things), as well as friendship, determination and loyalty."
"Any one who loves a great ghost story, I highly recommend DFF: Dead Friends Forever - whether you are a young adult, adult, male or female, this book will appeal and burn itself within your memory. A new favorite book for 2009 for me!"
Thank you sooo much April!! :)

Hey everyone ;)
I've been super busy, but plan on getting back on track now that the kids are in school.
I'm working on a bunch of projects:
1)Editing Requiem for Heather Ingemar for Echelon Press (GREAT short story--can't wait for it to be released!)
2)Writing a new novel and working through Authonomy--see it here: Redemption
3)Praying for my editors son, who was injured (depressed skull) in a sporting event in Canada. This means School's Out 4Ever may be delayed--but no worries--his health is far more important than any release date and those who are waiting, it won't be long now!
4)Finalizing the synopsis for Detour 2 Death and gathering all the notes taken while writing the first two in the Extreme Haunting's series.
5)Creating a guide for book clubs for DFF: Dead Friend's Forever and one for School's Out 4Ever.
So that's where I'm at, amongt a host of other projects, but I wanted to drop by and let everyone know I'm still alive!
