I Got Another 5-Star Review!

OK, the reviews are coming in slooooowly.  (And two people who claim they like Becoming Brigid more than my other books still gave me only 4 stars.  What's up with that?)
Still, I'll take all the five-star reviews I can get, people.
(Remember, I've got book swag giveaways coming up, and those who review my books on Amazon, goodreads, or who send me a photo of themselves with the book are entered.)

Here's what the reviewer has to say:

I find Lisa Shafer’s way with characterization so appealing. She has the ability to write characters who seem fully dimensional only a short way into the story. It’s a real talent. It didn’t take long for me to “know” Pepper and want to cheer her along as she faced the obstacles that were put in her path of surprising self-discovery. And the obstacles were amazing and interesting and seemed valid and real – adventures and legends that took her to different places and different times, and introduced her to unusual people – again, more well-written characters. It couldn’t have been easy to stitch all the parts of the story together, but Ms. Shafer did it seamlessly. BECOMING BRIGID is truly a fun and enjoyable story for readers of all ages.

No, it wasn't easy to "stitch all the parts together."  It took me ten freakin' years to write this book!

I'd love it if you dropped over to Amazon and hit the "yes" button on this review.  Please?  Just click here.

I'd also love it if you'd buy a copy of the book, read it, and write me another 5-star review.  Go on now.  I'll wait.


  1. I can understand the 4 stars. My favorite novels of all time, Dune, Hobbit, and The White Dragon, all had long stretches of agonizing telling and detail that encouraged me to skip. Yet I loved them in total. But because of the filler, I'd still give them 4 stars.

    Yeah, I'm tough.

  2. I don't recall any "filler" in the Hobbit, so I'm not sure what you mean there. However, the reviewers in question with me had already given 5 stars to my previous books which they supposedly liked less. I find this odd.
