Letters to Elise – On Sale Now

I’ve got a couple things I want to cover. Stuff about Letters to Elise at the top, and some news at the bottom.

Letters to Elise went on sale yesterday, and it’s already garnered five 5-star reviews. It’s only $.99 at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Here’s what some people are saying about Letter to Elise:

    “I didn’t realize how little was told about Peter in the series, he was very vague. This novella was beautifully written, and you got to see the side of Peter you normally don’t. In the ‘My Blood Approves’ series, he just seems so quiet, and to himself. But it’s also told in Alice’s point of view. In his novella you got to learn so much about him, his past, and his love for Elise.”  – Jenn (Amazon review)
    “I was not sure how I would enjoy this book knowing it was mostly going to be told in the form of letters, but I am so glad I read it. It was written not only in the form of letters but also in recollections and dialogue between Peter and Ezra. Amanda also gave us some insight into Peter and Jack’s relationship, or rather, how it used to be. I really felt like I got to know Peter better and see into his mind somewhat. Be prepared as I needed the kleenex box nearby!!”  – T. Anderson (Amazon review) 
    “Peter’s love letters to Elise lets you see inside his head — and his heart. I found myself remarkably sad when I finished it.”– Hope Welsh (Amazon review)

Listen to the Letters to Elise soundtrack: here (which is my favorite soundtrack ever, and has the songs from both the trailers on it)

Now onto the news:

I’m going to be “off” from today at 3:00 pm until Monday at 8:00 am. I don’t know what that means exactly, except that I won’t be writing and I’m trying to spend some time away from the computer. So if you email me or message me or what have you, I probably won’t get back to you until Monday.

And I think I’ll be able to give you some info about Ascend next week. Not a release date yet, but at least some idea of what’s happening with it.

    I’m glad you liked my review, Amanda. Peter really needs his own story.

    One of the marks of a good author, any reader will tell you, is that the writer makes you feel. If you don’t ‘feel something’ about the character–well, to be blunt; it’s not a good character. No one will ever be able to say that about your characters.

    I think I found your books via H.P. Mallory–and I’m glad I’ve been able to read and enjoy both of you.

      I’m with you. I have been waiting for it to come out as well in any form rather than a kindle version. I loved the book and want to add it to my book collction. The kindle version works but is not the same.

    Have a great holiday! I’m looking forward to reading Switched on the Kindle that I’m getting for Christmas (which I don’t yet officially know about).

    🙂 I just left that review. It was truely a great read Amanda! I was just bummed, it only took me like two hours to read.
    I hope you have some news for us!! I’m excited to hear! Letters to Elise helped relieve my need for Ascend. I think I’m going to re-read MBA series.
    I hope you have a wonderful time off, enjoy your holiday!
