Right Here Waiting has been added to two great lists on Goodreads!

I’m so honored and delighted to find that Right Here Waiting has been added to two lists on Goodreads! Best M/M Historical Romance of 2015 and Best Gay Romance In Times Of War I’m well aware of sometimes friction-laden relationship between authors and readers on Goodreads, and I do not want to wade anywhere near those waters. […]

A month after its release, Right Here Waiting, is back up to #16 on Amazon’s 20th Century Hot New Releases list.
