Manual Exposure Reader Review: Forest

Reedy Creek Park Image with Amazon Reader Review

Continuing with my series of reader reviews with my original photographs, I’d like to highlight a 5 star review written by Melissa Ann for Manual Exposure. For those who haven’t read Manual Exposure, I believe this review provides great insight into the book.

I receive a number of questions wondering about the level of sex in my book. Melissa says, “I consider the book to be quite steamy without being too much. It isn’t erotica, but it also isn’t innocent. Intelligent and sexy, you need to read this book!”

I love that! Yes, there is some sexual content in my book—I do not fade to black. I can’t decide for you if there is too little or too much sexual detail, as every reader as their own personal preferences. I feel I’ve tackled the scenes honestly, and I want you experience the passion between my characters.

Thank you for a beautiful review, Melissa! I’m thrilled you enjoyed the book and took the time to leave such a compelling review.

An actual copy of the paperback. I love the smooth matte finish. I couldn’t be more pleased!


In January, when I’d first received my paperback proofs, I posted the following video on my Facebook fan page. I was apprehensive about filming myself as I opened this monumental package, but I hit record knowing that I could always choose not to share this moment with the world. While I won’t win an award for smoothness of execution, I decided to share this moment with anyone who cares to watch it. I’m proud of the journey I’ve taken to get to this point, and more importantly, I believe in the story I’ve written. I don’t know what lies ahead for me, but with the publication of this book, I’ve lassoed the moon and danced across the stars. Fulfilling my lifelong dream has had a profound effect on my life, and I am happy to share it with others, if only to give them a little encouragement so that they may keep working toward achieving their own goals.
