you've come to the right place. Come on in.
Although Bonnie Engstrom, author of the Candy Cane Girls series, hadn't finished reading Rosa No-Name at the time, she couldn't keep from sharing this comment with me.

"You have a gift for making the reader part of the story, actually part of the characters. Great writing."

She's finished reading it now, and here's what she has to say in her Amazon review:

"Rosa will take you on a journey, the journey of her life. Sometimes it will be a sad journey, or a scary one, or one with moments filled with joy. It is a deep, introspective trip spanning decades, but it is captivating and fascinating. Be prepared for surprises, even shocks. They make Rosa’s journey so hopeful, as is Rosa herself. Will she ever find out who the god is that others refer to and bow to?

"Bruner has a special gift for creating authentic characters and tempting the reader into compassion with them, even the evil ones. Although it will be difficult to put this book down when sleep overcomes you, you will find yourself during many following nights thinking about Rosa. She will have gotten under your skin, and into your heart. Rosa No-Name is one of the most intriguing and unforgettable books I have ever read."

Thank you, Bonnie, and the other seven people who've left raving reviews—they have a 4.8 star average—on Amazon. If you've read Rosa but haven't left an Amazon review, it's not too late. Reviews not only help other readers decide whether a particular book is right for them, they help to raise a book in Amazon's ratings.

Not every book is for every reader. But The Devil and Pastor Gus has fifty-one reviews on Amazon now, and most of them are really nice; it has a 4.1 star average rating. Here are some of the most recent ones.

  • "A good 'fun read'—enjoyable yet made some good points on the bargains we try to make to advance our desires."

  • "I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are so real I felt like I knew them by the time I had finished. In particular, I felt for Pastor Gus in many ways. He is such a likeable character.

    "I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this book. It is so well-written and there are enough twists to keep the reader guessing."

  • "Interesting to see how the devil gets into hearts and lives and humans try to play both sides. Pastor Gus was a fun character."
