"I really loved how unpredictable this story was. I would be completely sure about what would happen next and then something totally different would happen. I really needed to know what would happen next because it was just so exciting and thrilling." MaureenB

"I read the novel Copyright with no expectations, I came across it on Amazon and decided I liked the idea of the plot line. I'm a struggling writer too. I enjoyed the fresh idea that the main relationship was between two women and it was realistically portrayed. Lesko writes convincing characters that aren't sickeningly perfect." Keith J Maitland

"It's every writer's worst nightmare: you've lost the work you've been working on so hard for months, or even years. But worse still, you discover that your precious manuscript has been STOLEN, and another writer is swanning around, passing off your book as her own...Amber Tyler's nightmare, however, became my reading pleasure, as, once I picked COPYRIGHT up, I, quite literally, couldn't put it down! At the beach, on the train, at work, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough, to find out what was going to happen next ... all the way to the denouement, which had me applauding out loud, at the sheer ingenuity of it... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED." Claire Terry

"From the very first page, I was engaged by the fictional life of Amber and I had to know what happened next. This storyline moved very well, seamlessly transitioning from one beat to the next. I don't feel that there was ever a moment where things lulled and felt as if they drug on. The pacing was that good. This was a great story of battling demons, both internally and externally. Written in a tone that was deadly serious one minute and hilarious the next, this is a novel that I would highly recommend. " Alicia Kline

"The story is engaging and unfolds at a comfortable pace. The characters are well developed, relate-able and believable. I could go on and on about the book, however, I do not want to give too much away. All I have to say is put this on your reading list and grab a copy when it publishes. Recommended for anyone who enjoys fiction that reads like real life." Stephanie Neighbour

"My heart was racing throughout some of the scenes. I don’t have high blood pressure, but I bet it was jacked up from time to time. That’s how good of a job this author did." Rebekkah Ford

"The idea of someone stealing your unfinished novel and publishing it themselves makes me sick to my stomach. I needed to find out how Amber dealt with it. I saw on Twitter that it was out and had to get it right away.The plot is great. The twists and turns were unpredictable and, for lack of better words, in your face. I read the entire novel in one day because I just had to find out what was going to happen next." Leetah Begallie 

"Amber, the main character, faces both internal and external battles. She's a writer, and what happened to her horrifies my inner-writer. There were many twists and turns along the way, and I couldn't, for the life of me, guess what was going to happen next. Honestly, I didn't even want to. I just wanted to flip the page and enjoy the unexpected journey." B.A. Wilson

"Plot and dialogue are not the only things that shine through this book. Characters are well developed and so realistic that you don't think of them as book characters, but real people with flaws and quirks who don't always act the way you would expect or want them to act." Milena Veen

"I was drawn in by the characters right away. Amber was real, well developed, and intense. At some point, I was actually angry at her for the choices she was making, but I kept reading to find out how the story would end for her." Ashlee M Ralph

"I agonized over what would happen to Amber. I was completely surprised at the identity of the perpetrator.This turned out to be a five-star book. I will be glad to recommend it!" Marsha Berg

"The writing style was impressive. I read a lot: successful contemporary authors, classics and independents. Many of the independent writers simply do not have the maturity of voice that I get used reading the likes of King, Sandford and Tolkien. Lori has a very strong voice and reads very easily. I would recommend this book to lovers of independent writing." Lee Gunter

"The relationship of Karen and Amber was "novel" (not really to me it is 2014) but some readers might react ala (oh a book with a lesbian couple which is fine) BUT their relationship complicated by Amber's dysfunction coupled with a really great story is so well crafted the fact the couple is a lesbian couple fell out of focus (they could have been purple people eating creatures it made no difference....)" David Michaels

" The writing is simple, the plot is original and intense. There are several twists that made me keep reading and took my breath away. It’s a book full of mystery, suspense and action. It also has some of the “true life drama” which makes it seem very realistic, and that makes it even more interesting." Joana Silva

"I've been looking foreword to this novel for a long time and it didn't disappoint. First off, I love how subtle the writing was with the main character being a lesbian. She's an author in a non-traditional family, her lover is a model and they have 2 kids. This in of itself is enough to write about. But what happens in the story is quite shocking and takes your breath away at times." Louis Joseph

"There were so many moments in the story when I just stopped and thought, "Wow, I can't believe that just happened!" Lori really knows how to turn a phrase and fill it with power and depth. The voice she creates for the main character is so real, so honest, that I followed her with every turn, even when she makes horrible decisions for herself and her family. Amazing writing!" Steve Daniel

"It's a gut wrenching story that takes you on a wild roller coaster ride. It's gutsy and has well developed characters and you never know what will happen next. I'm still in shock. Great book!" Debie Newman
