Truth be told, I've been writing for as long as I can remember, and I absolutely enjoy doing it. From the days of writing short stories in class, to when I actually completed my first novel, I have loved using my mighty pen sword. But aspiring writers, whether you've been writing since you could hold a pen, or if it's something new you're trying out, should always remember to have confidence, grow and learn. I think everyone should write because they love to. You don't have to be the next Stephen King or JK Rowling. Your only competition should be yourself, and as you nurture and hone your craft, hopefully others will be inspired by and appreciate your work.

- Seeing for the First Time

This is an easy, quick read for younger audiences. Ana comes across as a kid with smarts. The fantastical element in the story certainly is present, though I would've liked to have seen more done with the fairies instead of vampires, since the fairy-filled book cover intrigued me. The fast pace might deter some readers and feel rushed, and there are a few typos, but if you're looking for something light to read that might give you a jolt of pace and action, you can take a look at "Seeing for the First Time".

This is one of the prime examples why you should never judge a book's quality & content solely by its price. This was one of those "can't-put-em-down" reads. The characters Erica and Max were very likable, well-rounded, and the chemistry between these two protagonists was beautifully written. Colgan took my heart around chapter one then kindly handed it back to me by the end of the book. You cared about the characters--so important. I enjoyed the fact that the plot behind this was solid and kept you guessing.
This kind of human seeks vamp help to find loved one plot has been done before, but I liked the vampire detective twist that Colgan took on it. The romance scenes were lovely and captivating. The vixen in me would've loved if they were longer. I wasn't particularly fond of the POV change between the two protagonists always being indicated by "***". I prefer stories where it blends but is still distinct to avoid confusion. But aside from that, this story was great. It shall remain on my kindle. The ending seems to suggest there might be a sequel, and if so, I'll definitely be picking it up.
