Crimson Siege blog tour – day 3 and smiles all round.

And what an amazing day Saturday was. I received one of the most uplifting compliments I’ve had since the publication of Crimson Siege – and I’m still grinning about it 24 hours later!

Blogger Jessica Rachow has declared my historical vampire thriller one of her favourite reads of the year. Yeah!

She wrote: This is one action packed novel, that sucks (pun intended) you in from the beginning and keeps you until the very end. I could not put it down, and read it in one day. I loved the Gothic, historical writing style of Jay Raven. I loved the twists and turns, and I loved the creepy factor that stayed with me through the entire novel. I absolutely love when a horror novel is actually scary.”

My word! It doesn’t get much better than that…
