Confessions of a Mafia Princess by Nikki

From the cradle to the grave, we learn moment to moment and sometimes those moments bring out the best and worst in us ...

Ever feel like you didn't belong? That life was something that everyone else lived and you were made for something more?
That was me then, not the me now. I discovered life is a journey that creeps up on you when you least expect it, a journey that thrills you, terrifies you, can be your best friend and worst enemy.
This is my journey. Wanna come? ...from Geek to Chic ... ...Live Laugh Hope

This is my Now, my past and and my future

    Hi Nikki, Just read over your book and you have a great start. I loved the look into the childhood of your MC. It was cute, funny and realistic. I LOVED it. A friendly note: 86 the Jordin Sparks lyrics. It could get your book removed for copyright issues. I believe you can use no more than two lines of a song in your books legally. You're book is too good for that to happen. Another note, and this is ...

    This is my now-Confessions of a Mafia Princess OK, Nikki, Let me tell you how I normally proceed. If people ask me for a swap I first check them out. By coincidence I didn’t do that in your case. I just started reading the book, and didn’t even properly look at the pitches. Mafia Princess? I thought. This’ll be the usual rubbish no doubt. How wrong was I? I started reading and suddenly noticed that I wasn’t thinking editorially. That ...

    This has a lovely flow to it. In fact I was well into it before I realised I was reading an biography. It has the feel of light fiction, which makes is both very readable and entertaining. Lots of clever humour which isn’t over done so the reader never loses the balance the writer has almost effortlessly created. Some of the comments spoke of errors and maybe I’m just very slow, but I really can’t see them. Or perhaps you ...

    It is obvious you have edited this to near perfection since I last read it last year! I am shelving it again - it's that good and ready for the desk!

    Very witty and yet emotional. Your writing is fast and flowing. A captivating story.

    Hi Nikki, Just read parts of your story. I thought that the first chapter was too jumpy, not quite enough to hook the reader but...I'm no quitter, so I carried on and I'm glad I did. I like your dry, slightly self deprecating sense of humour. It really brings your story to life. You're going on the watch list for now but I intend to come back for more. If you have time to take a look at Change of ...

    I just came across your book, and I am DEF interested in reading it. It seems may have some things in common as far as how we perceive life. I look forward to reading your work. I also love the cover! It's funny that we both have similar pictures. I think I am liking yours more. Ha! I will comment as soon as I get to read your book. It is now on my wl.
    Good Luck!

    This is a very interesting book & an even better read. You regale us with entertaining stories about Nicole and her cousins, Nick, Max and David, which are as funny aa they are enjoyable. The piece where David rescued Nicole from the Hot Guy, by pretending to be her boyfriend, irritating her, is another funny moment. You have a very vivid style, which is captured me in an instant. It illustrates your point with style and a real swagger. There ...

    It's not very often that a biography is both interesting and entertaining. You write in an easy, conversational tone that is very much of today. There a lot of errors, especially in the later chapters, both in the dialogue and in the narrative, so you need to do the best you can to clean these up before you submit to agents or publishers. I loved the humour: an example early on, the casual, not very precise but explanatory, 'Non Verbal, ...

    Nikki, This is definitely an engaging read. You have a conversational tone here that really draws the reader in. For me...memoirs are a tricky thing. I think that they should rise above the relaying of the day-to-day experiences and touch on some greater purpose. Everyone had an interesting childhood, and yours is no exception. But from a publishing standpoint, I think it has to have some type of angle. I only read a couple of chapters so I didn't get ...

    I read half of your first chapter. I stopped because of so many edit problems. These are easily corrected, but they totally distracted me. General comments: Engaging start to what appears to be a captivating story. Interesting main character. Good tension. Good pacing. Needs to be heavily edited for punctuation. Specific comments on first half of chapter one: 1) 'father's day' shoulf be 'Father's Day.' 2) 'Winchester is 20 minutes outside of Boston.' Spell out all numbers 1-99. There are ...

    Overall I enjoyed the book. Well done. I'll be interested to read it when it's officially complete.
