Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
If I'm not reading, looking up some random thing I'm curious about online, or trying to keep my cats from destroying the house, I'm playing fetch with my dog.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Frequently they're books I've had on my "To Read" list for ages that I'm just now getting around to buying, but sometimes I just start perusing genres I'm interested in and find something that really gets my attention.

Smashwords book reviews by Shannon Haddock

  • Love or Lust on July 13, 2013

    The story is exactly as described in the description. The two high school freshmen fall in love at first sight, and the book is about them questioning whether it's really love or if it's just lust and the complications they experience at things like a school dance due to being homosexual. One of the things I liked the most about it was that most of the problems between the girls stemmed not from things like lusting after others or any of the other typical romance novel clichés, instead 99% of their problems stemmed from simply misunderstanding what the other meant. It reminded me of a romantic comedy, which, as far as I know, doesn't tend to be a WRITTEN genre. There are things about it that may make it wrong for some people: Both sets of parents are rather open-minded even where their children's sex lives are concerned, and the girls are more mature acting than many, but by no means all, real world 14-year-olds. And a little bit of suspension of disbelief might be necessary to deal with just how quickly they fall in love -- but I think this is handled well since the girls themselves question it. All in all, a very good book, and I eagerly await book two.
