Reviews are online gold

When an author launches a book, the hope, of course, is that people will want to read it. In our digital world, word spreads via reviews, which are online gold to authors.

As the comments come in for my new novel The Scent of Rain, the review by Eustacia Tan on her blog Inside the mind of a Bibliophile stood out this week because the reviewer is from Japan. It is especially delightful, at least for me, to think people in other parts of the world might find my books interesting and worthy of reading. It’s all the more lovely when they give the book a 5 Star Review.

My thanks to Eustacia Tan for taking the time to review The Scent of Rain.


Anne Montgomery’s new YA novel, The Scent of Rain, tells the story of two Arizona teenagers whose fates become intertwined. Rose flees into the mountains to escape from her abusive polygamous community where her only future is marriage to a man older than her father. Adan, whose only wish is to be reunited with his mother, is on the run from the cruelties of the foster care system. Are there any adults they can trust? Can they even trust each other?  The Scent of Rain is available at and wherever books are sold.
