I wish her the best, but I did not like the style at all, scattered.

Around We Go (Book) - 4/7/2003 9:49:01 AM
Tonya L. Chatelain presented "Around We Go" to us last year as her first [explicit] lesbian novel. [Explicit] indeed! It had me blushing. But [explicit] falls short of the depth of the character experiences in AWG; their travels, travails, sense of adventure, their generosity, their lust AND their need to connect and build meaningful lives with another human being. Tiffany struggles for years not accepting her true identity. She even carries on a sleep together relationship with her college roommate, Susan, because that was just the thing to do. Boy! I was sure naive in college. And maybe Tiffany's roommate was naive, too, because she thought something more fundamental than college fun was going on. Tiffany went on to date a man for years while Susan licked her wounds. This college-thing-do-phase represented something deeper that Tiffany finally admitted to herself, her mother and her fiance. That she loves women, and more precisely Susan. What inspired me about the characters was their growth in facing difficult challenges. Face it. It's not easy telling you're mother you're a lesbian. And gay men and women risk their lives for simply holding hands as is portrayed in a grizzly scene in Australia which leaves Tiffany paralyzed and her partner dead. The final moments of her partner's life are beautifully written and I almost felt as if I were perishing with her. Can love overcome years, disability and the miles. Tiffany's mom comes through, travelling thousands of miles to bring her daughter home. But can Tiffany repair her relationship with Susan. I think we have to read Around We Go Again to find that out. I enjoyed this book and recommend it. Art Hansen for Alison's Read and Trade

Around We Go (Book) - 1/4/2003 6:35:49 PM
Susan is HOT, HOT, HOT! I want to find one just like her. I am so glad that she put Tiffany in her place. What nerve asking her to come stand up at her wedding after what she did. Susan has a beautiful heart and she deserves someone like Stephanie who treats her good. I cannot wait to read more about my wonderful Susan in book two. I loved this book and recommend it highly my girlfriend is reading it now maybe she will pick up a few hints from then wink wink. buy it, read it, love it...

Around We Go Again (Book) - 12/31/2002 7:16:03 AM
I think I have fallen in love. How such characters can come from the mind of one person is truly an amazing talent. Not only has Ms. Chatelain created an entertaining story, but she has caused me to feel a stirring of care and concern for the characters in her story. I very much desire to know where all of these women end up. I think about Tiffany, Susan, Johnnie, and Stephanie at odd times during the day, and find myself wondering what they might be doing at that very moment. Even though I know that they are not real, they still live on in my mind. I am so eager to know which direction the creative mind of this author will take them next. I can't decide which of the characters I am most in love with. I find that there are bits and pieces of each of them that draw me in. It's fun to sit and think about the particular characteristics of each woman within the story. Actually, I think if I could pull certain traits from each of them that I could create my ultimate soul mate *big smiles*.

YOUR NUMBER ONE FAN!!!!!! Your life is NOT complete until you read this book! From the southern state of Texas, to the beautiful shores of keywest, Florida, to the moutainous regions of Colorado, to Australia the land down under.....this story never seems to sit still!!! Each twist and turn with the characters kept me completely on my toes and I was literally unable to put the book down. I am a voracious reader, but I have never read any other book that has kept me so drawn in....I never want the story to end, but go on and on so that I can know all the details in the lives of Stephanie, Susan, Tiffany, Cindi, and even the stable hand Johnnie.......I love the idea of the lesbian ranch ..........Can I VISIT???? ;o) I found myself loving and hating and feeling joy and sadness......and feeling angry and so at peace........right along with the characters....Ms. Chatelain has a little sense of orneriness as well for leaving me HANGING.......aching with longing to know more and more and to find out what will transpire in the next book. I feel the need to say thank you to the author....I've never experienced such an emotional read and she truly has a gift of writing and creating. She has created characters that are so vivid and that I have come to care deeply about. I would recommend this book whole heartedly!!!

Heart Wrenching!! A nail biting, emotional roller coaster ride of indescribable proportion!! From the moment I started reading I found myself lost to the story. My heart went out to tiffany as she experienced such disappointment and disgust from her first kiss with a boy. Her fear and confusion over her sexuality when she learned that others were talking about her and her new college roommate Brittany. Gawddd, my stomach had butterflies at the mere thought of already having those confusing feelings then finding out your roommate was a lesbian. I felt so attuned with her as she began to warm up to Brittany and grew to desire them getting together. I so wanted to see Tiffany experience that which she had been missing and was sooo frustrated that she and Brittany didn't make faster strides toward that......I do not wish to give away too much of the story, but the next few events that occurred in the lives of Tiffany, Brittany, and Brittany's girlfriend Susan made me weep with bittersweet tears then grow so angry at the unfairness of life for the three. I wanted to call the author and say HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO THEM????? *deep sigh* As soon as I started to get over my initial shock and anger, the story took another turn that was totally unexpected. I found my loyalties to one character transferring to another that I felt was more deserving. Then I waffled back and forth because I wanted everybody to get what they wanted and to be happy. ****laughs because she has found herself so emotionally invested in the lives of those in the story.....**** Tiffany, Brittany, Susan, Stephanie, Cindi........they are so very much alive in my heart and mind.....I grew angry with Tiffany and fell in love with Susan and felt myself cheering whole heartedly for Stephanie....and oh my gawd, sweet, annoying little Cindi, like a persistent little kitten capturing your heart with her sheer determination to get what she wants......I am sitting here with my heart pounding and my tummy fluttering with all of my questions of what will happen next in all of their lives....This author has a way of weaving intrinsic detail and emotion into the lives of her characters......so much so that the idea of having to wait for the next book is driving me to distraction. I NEED to know what happens next.........has anyone ever thought of producing a "lesbian soap opera" because this book could be the basis for the ulitimate in lesbian television. Tonya, if you are listening........please, please, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee hurry with book two.......I simply HAVE to know what happens next!!!!!!!!!!

I am an avid reader so I make this review with a harden heart towards books as I have read so many bad ones. I must admit that this book moved me in so many new way I was very pleasantly surprised and relieved to finally find a book that I could go Dang that was an excellent book... I felt as if I was watching a movie or even real life, as it was so bright and vivid in my mind as I read I could see the characters and feel their feelings and I had a lot of the same emotions that they were going through as I read along feeling at times I was intruding into their world a bit by reading. I read this book all in one setting. I await patiently her second novel "Around We Go Again" due out in November 2002. OK so maybe not so patiently as I have read book one at least three times all ready. (well its a great book). Ms. Chatelain has touched something inside of me that I did not until this book think written words could touch. a magnificent read and must if your contemplating to buy or not to buy.

Wonderful book, I would have given it more then 10 if i could have, I am not sure what the last person had going wrong in her life to have not liked this book but it is a great great novel. I have been out all my life and I have no problems with me and yet I found no trouble what so ever in loving this book. I hope the author keep writing as I am hungry for all hers I can get my hands on. I search her website www.TLCNovels.com all the time for her next book to be released thank you and keep writing. I am your number one fan. Lori

Around We Go (Book) - 8/15/2002 7:07:13 AM
I was disappointed. This is not that great of a book. The obligitory rape the lesbian scene is sickening. There are about 2 chapters that are good the rest is way too wordy

Tonya, I like the message here. True love seems to block out the world naturally for moments at a time. It's when reality sets in that things get iffy. Hugs, Sheila

Spoken like a true survivor, a decree from the mind while the heart attempts to follow. Wave your banner high ....

Ouch ... You're definitely touching the core of this poet's heart. Enjoying every minute of it.

You capture what matters in a jar, like so many fireflies - small wonders that glow brightly all through the night. Great job!

Oh No (Poetry) - 8/2/2008 8:10:54 AM
I'm envisioning a line of greeting cards for the broken hearted. I like your poetic directness and the power you carry in a matter of few lines. Sorry it took so long to get here....

No Doubts (Poetry) - 8/2/2008 8:08:43 AM
Read like an epitaph. So many grave markers of the heart could bear these lines. Very nicely done.

Good-Bye (Poetry) - 8/2/2008 8:07:47 AM
Your brief but powerful style is like a linguistic punch on the mind. Pulling the bandaid quickly, we feel the pain but relief is soon forthcoming. I'm glad I stopped by....

Straight and to the point but how often has such a simple word been misused? Thoughtful work. Fee

Sums up a lot of the relationships I had in my lifetime as well. Hard hitting but real. Fee

For You (Poetry) - 10/19/2005 9:28:19 AM
Tonya, You've put a lot of heart into this. "but my love isn't for rent or even for sale" is a great line. If only more would cherish love and not farm it out until something better comes along like someone with more money, better looks, more material things, or higher social position, the heart could live forever on endless love. Thanks for the special, heartwarming words. Sage

What I really mean (Poetry) - 6/13/2005 8:39:21 PM
Well written. I love this!

What I really mean (Poetry) - 6/6/2005 2:11:45 PM
Hi Tonya, This is great. Because you have learned to really love yourself. That is why you can't have a relationship without being in love. when we think less of our-selves , we don't feel too great about who-ever does find us appealing. Then we learn to love ourselves in the truest way , and now whoever loves us too is joining us on the positive side of who we ultimately are. it's really rather beautiful, though , the path may've been arduous. WE ARRIVED! Life is great and your poem is wonderful! Rich Criso Suarez
