Another Great Review for “Eternally & Evermore”

NobbMark_Eternally&Evermore_EB_final I got notification today (aren’t Google alerts great?) of a second review of Eternally & Evermore in the space of a week. And this one is just as good as the last.

The review site is Literary Nymphs and the reviewer is Goddess Minx. Here’s a couple of quotes from the review.

“When I read the blurb for the story Eternally and Evermore, I thought that this should be a good book. Now after having read the story, I know it is a keeper and I enjoyed learning about no matter how much we go through, love finds a way.”

“Now having read this book by Mr. Nobbs, I am pleasantly surprised to know how creative he is with telling this story of romantic proportions. I have added him to my list of authors to read!”

She awarded the book 4 Nymphs out of 5. Read the full review here. This comes on the back of the review at HEA Reviews, which was also great.

I’m feeling pretty good right now.

Eternally & Evermore is available now from the Phaze website and leading e-book retailers.

Love doesn’t make the flowers smell sweeter, Love wakes you up to the world around you. Love won’t make you flawless, but Love will take away the fear that holds you back. Love isn’t the destination, Love is journey you take with the one person who cares about you most.

Twenty years after promising to love each other “Eternally & Evermore”, teenage sweethearts, Amy and Will, are reunited to discover their love burns as strongly as it ever did. But while Will is a successful lawyer, Amy has walked a tougher path. What secrets does she harbour? What ghosts litter her past? And what horrors will they have to endure before they can finally be together “Eternally & Evermore.”

Eternally & Evermore is Marc’s latest novel. In it you’ll meet William Brown and Amy Robinson - two teenage sweethearts as they explore their first love. They and their relationship will charm you and make you wish you were eighteen again.

But then you’ll be catapulted forward twenty years to when Will is a divorced father of one and a brilliant lawyer - and he hasn’t seen Amy since she sent him a ‘Dear John’ letter during their time at different universities. An invitation to his class reunion brings his feelings for Amy flooding back - especially when they meet up again to find that she feels the same way.

But while Will is rich and successful, Life has not been kind to Amy. She’s been through hard times and made some bad choices. Now that Will is back in her life, can she find the strength to put things right. Can they finally be together Eternally & Evermore.

Passionate and emotional, yet thought provoking, Eternally & Evermore will charm you and leave you breathless. This is one book you cannot afford to miss.

Great Review for “Eternally & Evermore”

wp7b3eb1a9Monica from Happily Ever After Reviews, has written a wonderfully kind review of Eternally & Evermore. You can read it here.

She awarded the book “4 Tea Cups” out of five and recommends the book to “to people that can relate with the struggles that a relationship goes through when they find their true love, and feel compelled in helping them however they can in order to keep them safe.”

A couple of quotes from the review…

“From being teenagers to adults, this love story is wonderful.”

“Nobbs writes William Brown as an exceptional, shy sweet young man who becomes a brilliant lawyer. The way the character goes about protecting Amy during their final school year, to how he protects after the high school reunion is heroic.”

“In Chapter 29 Nobbs does a great job in writing how much Amy has gone through since they were last together nearly 20 years later. The feelings and expressions how much pain and heartache Amy went through since William went to Oxford.”

“My favorite quote in the book is "Like the song says, It's always been you. And it always be. You'll be in my heart, Eternally and evermore."”

I’d like to thank Monica for her review. It feels great when people enjoy your work.

You can buy Eternally & Evermore direct from Phaze, or from your preferred e-book store (But not for your Kindle yet – that normally takes a a while to get to the Amazon store).

Need to Get my Arse in Gear

It’s time I started writing again. What with the holiday in the middle of August, returning to a mountain of work that I still haven’t really caught up with, and then what happened last week, I’ve written very, very little of my WIP in the past month or so. Shame really, cause I left it at a pretty interesting point. It should be easy to pick up the thread of the story – if I can just find it within myself to actually start writing again.

2010-09-20 08.34.45 On a different note, I’ve uploaded a new profile pic to Twitter, Facebook et al. It’s on the right. What do you think? I like of think of myself as a bit of a trendsetter with that cap. So I was only mildly upset when one of the girls at work said “Eh Up, Granddad, where’s yer bike?”

Another of the girls said she could see me in the hat, standing in some field with my trousers tucked into my wellies, sporting a Harris Tweed jacket with my shotgun sitting in the crook of my arm. Yeah, like I can afford Harris Tweed.

Heartache Maketh the Writer

They say, or so I’m led to believe, that writers are at their best when pouring out all the heartache, tragedy and pain of their own lives onto the page. Is it true? I don’t know, but maybe I’m about to find out. Although, to be honest, I’ve never felt less like writing than I do at the moment.

September was supposed to be a month of celebration following the release of Eternally & Evermore at the end of August. Should have known better, shouldn’t I?

First of all, the book didn’t get its release when it was supposed to. It should have been available to buy on 30th August – that’s what I was told. On the publisher's “Coming Soon” page it was listed as available in August (but no day specified) as well. But on September 1st it still wasn’t released. I did my best to find out what was up, and if the delay was my fault, but it took another week before the book came out. 7th September to be exact. And I still don’t know the reason for the delay (not that it matters, but it would be nice to know).

More worrying, perhaps, is that, as I write this post, there hasn’t been another release from Phaze since then (as my book is showing first on the ‘recently released’ list), my book is still on the “Coming Soon” page (and is still shown as “Coming in August”) and there are no other books listed on that page.

I don’t know what’s going on, but I hope it gets sorted out soon.

Then something else, something more important, happened which really fucked September up good and proper. My wife suffered a miscarriage.

She was ‘only’ ten weeks gone, but it was enough for the both of us to start making plans and get excited. That’ll teach us.

So I’m sure you’ll forgive my absence from this blog for a while. I’ve had more important things to deal with. Of course, if “Heartache Maketh the Writer” is true, I should have been channelling everything I was feeling into possibly my best work ever, but like I said, I’ve never felt less like writing. It just doesn't seem important right now.

Still, life goes on. Eternally & Evermore  is out and available to buy from the Phaze website, Smashwords, and All Romance eBooks. My little boy has started school and my wife and I both still have our health. Even if we are trying to come to terms with what has happened. Life goes on.

Where you been?

Okay, so the whole point of advance posting the Eternally & Evermore excerpts was so that my blog didn’t go without a posting for two weeks. And what happens when I get back from holiday? Yep, I spend so much time catching up with everything, that my blog goes without a post for two weeks.

Bloody typical.

Oh, well, can’t have everything. I’m still struggling for time to be honest, so for today, here’s the trailer for E&E. It does say that the book is ‘available now’, but it isn’t. Yet. I was expecting to be released yesterday, but it’s still showing as ‘Coming soon’ on the Phaze website. (Actually, it says ‘Coming in August’ but don’t go there). I’m trying to find out what the delay is and will let you guys know when I know. Anyway, enjoy the trailer.
