Blog Blitz Part 2! Reviews are in for Love, Loss and Life In Between #shortstory #anthology

It’s been great seeing new reviews being shared of my latest short story collection, especially when the reviewers pick their favourite stories. It’s cool to see reviews being shared on other platform as well, including Instagram. Here are a few snippets and links to the reviewers Instagram posts;

Jen_loves_reading says ‘This is a very emotive and thought provoking collection of short stories that cover grief and finding love, as well as moving on and finding peace either with themselves or others. Some of the stories will stay with me longer than others, whilst there were a couple that just pulled at the heartstrings.’

Seduced with Literature says ‘This has to be the most emotional collection of short stories I’ve come across to date. Suzanne had really mastered capturing raw, painful emotions in very few words.’

Library of Louise says ‘If you are someone who enjoys short stories then you is one full of variety and solid writing, and perhaps one you may consider.’

InsomniacBookwormBookReviews says ‘Emotionally, heartwarming collection of short stories that are written beautifully.’

I have some more blog posts to share as well…

The Bouncing Tigger Reads says ‘The author writes fluently, fluidly and often lyrically…’

Pooled Ink says ‘Suzanne Rogerson has such an ability to explore a vast array of human experiences and threading them through with a breath of magic. These short stories were easy to read in a day, quick yet poignant.’

Tea leaves and book leaves says ‘Love loss and life between are short stories and all of them are written beautiful and very meaningful. I do like Suzanne Rogerson writing it is engaging and emotive and all the stories touched my heart.’

Tizi’s Book Review says ‘…reading each story put me on a rollercoaster of emotions. There were sweet stories in it, heart – warming ones, heart – breaking ones, hopeful stories. But there was also one story that gave me the creeps…’

Tomes and Tales says ‘I loved each of the stories. Rogerson writes beautifully, and her style is warm and concise. The mixed genres make every story different and interesting in its own way. Her way of writing about human emotions and commonplace issues strikes a chord.’

Bound4Escape says ‘These short stories feature several genres. Many of them are sweet, many are about grief and the first steps of moving on, and one I would even categorize as horror.’

Thanks for Jazzy Book Reviews, Duckfacekim09 and C L Tustin Author for the promo posts.

Thanks very much to all the bloggers involved in this blog blitz. If I’ve missed any one, I’ll share their posts soon.

I hope these review snippets have inspired you to check out Love, Loss and Life In Between on Amazon and Goodreads.

Blog Blitz for Love, Loss and Life In Between #shortstory collection #womensfiction

Today is the one day blog blitz for my newest release – Love, Loss and Life In Between.

Some great reviews have already come in and I will share the links with you below. First though, I’d just like to thank Rachel for organising another blog blitz for me.

It’s always nerve-wracking publishing something new, but even more so when that is in a new genre. Thankfully Love, Loss and Life In Between has been well received. Take at look at some of the comments below and follow the links to read the full reviews. I’ll share another update later or tomorrow with links to the remaining blogs.

Just Katherine says ‘Love, Loss and Life in Between is an incredibly well-written short story collection. The emotions in each story are so powerful and the writing style is excellent, with each word carefully chosen to give maximum effect and make the reader feel.’

The Strawberry Post says ‘This is a lovely set of short stories, each of them quite different from the others but all of them centering on the subjects of love and loss…’

Jenny Lou’s Book Reviews says ‘This is a lovely collection of short stories, you can have heart-breaking, heart-warming and shocking moments all in one collection.’

Mai’s Musings says ‘…I was surprised at just how much emotion Suzanne managed to inject into each of these small but perfectly formed tales.’

MJ Porter Author Blog says ‘…This really was a delightful collection of short stories. The author has a lovely turn of phrase and manages to evoke strong feelings in her characters which make them believable, so that in only a few words the reader is already rooting for them.’

A quick shout out to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers for sharing a promo post.

If your interest is piqued, why not pick up the ebook for only 99p. Also available in paperback and hardback.

Reading plans for the last of 2022 #amreading #romance #fantasy #urbanfantasy

I have been terrible at sharing my reviews lately, even though I’ve read some great books this year and want to rave about them!

For now I will focus on the books I want to read before the end of 2022. I have a huge TBR pile to choose from, but at the beginning of the year I wrote a list of the books I definitely want to fit in. I won’t get through them all now, so I have drawn up yet another short list.


As I’m writing romance at the moment, I find myself drawn to read it more than ever. I used to read one or two a year, but now it’s mainly what I reach for when it’s time to pick a new book.

The first book I must get to is a Netgalley request – Jo Thomas – Keeping a Christmas Promise

Claire Huston – The Only Exception (I’ve really enjoyed Claire’s other books)

Nancy Borane – New Hope for the Little Cornish Farmhouse (I love the premise of this book)

I do enjoy a Christmas themed story. Closer to the big day I have a collection of charity shop buys set during the festive period to delve into.

Urban Fantasy

I’ve actually read quite a bit of this lately rather than my usual go to epic or heroic fantasy. I’ve really enjoyed the change and have a couple of series I really want to continue. I want to make some of these a priority for 2022.

Laura Laasko – Echo Murder – Wilde Investigations bk 2 (I also own book 3, and book 4 is due for release this month). Book 1 was excellent!

Talis Jones – Fifth Sun series. I really enjoyed books 1-3 (and must post my reviews) so am looking forward to 4 and 5.

Josie Jaffery – Judgement Day – Seekers book 2 (Bk 1 May Day was brilliant).


Fantasy is my first love when it comes to writing and watching on TV / films and I have read some wonderful books in this genre. I’ve been so distracted by romance that I don’t even know where to begin choosing my next fantasy read.

I do want to complete the Fire Walker Series by a fellow self-published author Emma Miles – it’s brilliant and I haven’t completed all my reviews for this yet either. Raven Fire is book 4 and the final book, although there are also spin off books I’ve yet to read as well.

I do want to read Jessica Thorne’s book 2 Nightborn, but I’m loathe to start it when I know book 3 isn’t out yet. I really loved the first book and wish there were lots more to look forward to.


I’ve brought a couple of Rayne Hall’s Writer’s Craft books that fit what I’m writing at the moment and want to get stuck into them to help me focus my ideas. Writing Romance and Writing Short Stories.


That is probably too many books and I usually go off track anyway, but I’m hopeful of ticking some off the list. Have you read any of these books?

Do you have any fantasy recommendations?

Do you have your own list of books to complete reading in 2022?

I’ll be back at the weekend with reviews from the blog blitz of my new publication – Love, Loss and Life In Between.
