Another "Twilight" Book.

There are several people who automatically associate Paranormal Romance novels with the Twilight Saga, which can be a good or a bad thing. I personally like the series, both the books and the movies, and admit to going to at least one midnight showing. But not all Paranormal Romance books are the same. There are several of them I have read that seemed like a Twilight knock off...there are some that all seemed to have the same characters and story lines although they were from different authors. And then there are some that have the 'wow' factor.
I must say it is nice to know that some people think my novel, Forgotten Memories, stands out from the 'Twilight' cliche.
Here is one of the reviews I received:
What a read!, January 28, 2012

This review is from: Forgotten Memories (A Saving Angels Novel) (Kindle Edition)
I'm not much of a reader, so when I read the plot for this book, I felt as if it was going to be all too similar to a certain story including vampires. As I started reading, the book took me to a place as though I were watching the protagonist in person! Such a sweet love story, with the wonderfully awesome addition of adult themes and action scenes. I didn't keep my (figurative) nose out of it until I reached the end. So excited to read more! Keep up the great work! "

Needless to say, that made me feel good. I'm pretty sure that would make any author feel damn good. I guess my point is, don't judge a book from it's cover or it's genre. Judge a book from what's inside. Does it take you into another world? Do you feel like it is happening to you or right in front of you?

On a bright note, the first day my novel was in paperback I sold over 10 copies in only a few hours. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
