Having a Bookgasm

Luckily I am not the one who came up with that term - bookgasm. It is the name of a book review site, and a trustworthy one at that. Good news is they seem to like both One Too Many Blows To The Head and Borrowed Trouble. Yay for us.
They called One Too Many, "like a post-modern Gold Medal novel. " and said, "Kohl and Beetner have a real knack for this type of storytelling." Of Borrowed Trouble they said, "The book is a fantastic follow-up" 

It's so nice to see reviews start to trickle in, especially good ones.  Do reviews work? Yes they do, according to my scientific study which involved checking the Amazon rankings of both books before and after the Bookgasm article. Before both books were hovering between 1.5 and 1.7 million. Now they both sit in the mid hundred thousands. 
I haven't written squat in a few weeks which was by choice, but I'm gearing up to finish some shorts that are due as well as plotting out the next novel and starting on a new project with Jennifer. Plus I've started looking into what all is involved with putting up a novella on Kindle. I'm sure it's easier than it seems right now. Above all I need to get it edited. I'm sure there is a bunch of stuff I'm not seeing even after going through it multiple times and I want it to be right.
Should be a fun-filled summer.
