New Reviews

Great News!
On Friday, I managed to nab two good reviews for Two Wrongs by Morgan Mandel. As every author out there knows, reviews are worth their weight in gold.

Just wanted to share a bit of them with you.

This morning Joyce Laabs, the reviewer for The Lakeland Times in Wisconsin published a review saying:

"''Two Wrongs' make a very 'right' book. "Two Wrongs" (Hard Shell Word Factory) by Morgan Mandel is a great read. It is a tale of murder and revenge, deftly woven by Mandel."

She also called it a "page-turner -- filled with suspense." If you'd like to see the rest of her review, it can be found at

I also managed to get one more Amazon.com review, which I was happy to receive, from D. Rittle who wrote:

"TWO WRONGS is an intriguing mix of emotion and action. The fast pace of the novel makes it a page turner, keeping the reader in suspense until the very end. Unexpected plot twists make this a must read. I couldn't put it down. Mandel does a great job of getting into the psyche of the two main characters. This is definitely an author to keep an eye on."

It feels good to have my book appreciated.

Juggling writing with life

Well folks,
It's not always easy to juggle writing with everyday life. Maybe some folks are better at it than others. All I know is to get one thing accomplished I often have to give up the other. This weekend I did yard work, then cleaned house because my surroundings were too out of order for me to bear them any more.

I'm happy with the results in that hemisphere, but unhappy I spent precious time away from my writing and marketing. Next time it will probably be the reverse. I'll work on my writing and let the house go instead. Then I'll feel happy again at what I accomplished, but sad I don't have well-ordered surroundings.

That's the game I have to play to do what I love doing. It's worth it.

Hi everyone out there

To everyone out there in cyberspace,

I can't promise to blog every day, so that's why my blog is called All I have to say.

First I should introduce myself. I'm Morgan Mandel, a mystery and romance author, with one published mystery, TWO WRONGS, still available at www.hardshell.com, www.amazon.com and by order at bookstores. I've also completed a romantic comedy called GIRL OF MY DREAMS, which I hope to find a home for soon, as well as a romantic suspense called DEADLY DREAMS.

Presently I'm working on a medical thriller, which I am doing my best to make my breakthrough novel.

I didn't get much chance to work on my new book this week. I'm still playing catch- up after being spoiled a week on vacation in Wisconsin, enjoying warm weather, lots of good meals and my weakness: penny and nickel slot machines.

I'm not exactly in the mood for returning to my day job, doing the laundry and paying the stack of bills sitting on the kitching table, but life goes on. I better get to some of it now.

All the best until next time,
Morgan Mandel
