A little "thank-you" from Rosanna!

Happy Friday all!
I just want to take a moment to say "thank-you."  For the Love of a God is my first foray into the publishing world, and as any author knows, it can get a little overwhelming sometimes.  One births this "thing", this novel, and then one must send it out into the world, hoping very much that someone falls in love with it as I have.

I was impressed and astounded by the level of support I felt IMMEDIATELY upon joining the ranks of romance authors.  There's a lot of love in this community, and not for one moment have I suspected it wasn't genuine.  And our fans truly can't get enough of the genre!  That's a wonderful thing!

I have to say that getting my first good reviews have truly left me gobsmacked.  When I saw those 4 stars, and in one heartwarming instance 5 stars, I felt such an incredible rush of emotion.  I know I sent little "thank-you" messages to my kind reviewers, but I really feel the need to say it again.  THANK-YOU!  This is why we do this work.  We want you to fall in love with our heroes and to identify with our heroines.  To know that someone did is bliss. :)

THANK-YOU to my publisher Liquid Silver Books for taking on a newbie, but never making me feel like one.  Because you took a chance on me, I've been in a state of constant giggles and smiles for months now.  My cheeks hurt, and I have new laugh lines, and it's awesome.

And THANK-YOU as well to the people in my life who have supported me and cheered For the Love of a God.  To the co-workers who always ask how my sales are going.  To the friends who, when they see me, say "I just finished chapter so-and-so", and then wink at me!  Thank-you to everyone who has bought a copy or tagged it to read or just plain "liked" me.  Your support keeps me going.

I look forward to sharing my new novel Up in Flames with you on May 28.  Have a wonderful week-end. 

Lots of love,


  1. Congratulations Rosanna. :) Writing is often lonely and the type of thing where you constantly second guess yourself. I'm glad things are going so well for you.

    1. Thank-you Jennifer! I don't know if the second guessing will ever stop (dealing with that right now in the current WIP), but it's been a fun ride so far. I wish you well in all your ventures also! :) Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  2. Rosanna, congrats on everything. You are such an amazing author. You know you have a fan in me..

    1. Savannah, from such a consummate pro in this business, this is indeed valued praise, and I thank you!
