Editorial Reviews

About the Author

"Lori Lesko is definitely a bright spark in the publishing community and this book needs to be read."

"I was cheering for her to exact revenge on the word thief."

"Lesko writes convincing characters that aren't sickeningly perfect." Keith J Maitland

"...the author didn't shy away from showing the complete and utter destruction in COPYRIGHT."

The plot of "Copyright" was a new one I hadn't encountered previously. The ending really surprised me and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Highly recommend."

"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."

"I found this book by accident, but am really glad I did. I was hooked from the beginning of this emotional roller coaster of a story and honestly, I was sad it ended."

"This book’s cover foreshadows the story inside, a life battered by catastrophe after catastrophe for main character Amber Tyler."-Indie Imprint

Format: Kindle Edition
This book. Guys. This. Freakin. Book. I have so many thoughts on this book that I'm not even sure if I can accurately type them all out.

Amber Tyler is a 39 year old mother of two currently working on what she hopes will be her next big novel. But her plans change drastically after she has a "widow maker" heart attack and relapses into her old drug habits. To top it all off, her work is stolen and published under a different name.

This novel had so many insane twists and turns that I had no idea where it was going next. There was so much about this novel, even down to the cover design, that I absolutely loved. This quickly jumped up to the top of my favorite reads of 2014 list and I can't wait to read more from this author.

I immediately connected with the story as soon as the author began describing the "widow maker" heart attack. I'm all too familiar with that as my father had one in 1994 and thankfully survived. The odds are never great when someone has this particular heart attack, as can be guessed from the name. My grandfather and great grandfather both died from that so when my dad had one no one was sure what would happen.

The realities of addiction and even the court system were explored beautifully in this novel. I enjoyed every second of this story and loved the ending. The author did a fantastic job of keeping me engaged while not providing a "perfect" ending that wouldn't have fit the main character. Absolutely deserves a 5/5.

As a book reviewer, I make it a habit to give absolutely no spoilers in my reviews. I will violate that rule slightly in this review because much of what I saw as good and bad about the book would make sense without some sort of context. Even so, I will attempt to keep the spoiling to a minimum.
Copyright was a book of mixed emotions for me. There were things I liked very much, and things I was less happy with.
This book describes the story of a characters downward, self destructive spiral. This was written very well. AS I read I was irritated and frustrated - this only happens when the writing draws me in. On the other hand, the same was not true for the corrective behavior. Great detail was given to the bad behavior, almost none was given to the good. It felt out of balance.
The perspective of this book and the character relations was quite disorienting to me. The main character is a woman. The romantic partner of the main character is also female. This non traditional relationship was introduced very subtly at the beginning of the book. There were a few passages where I looked back a page or two try and sort out of I had read something wrong. As a man, I initially perceived the main character as male. I was allowed, and inadvertently encouraged to pursue this wrong assumption for a while. So once I realized the lead couple of the story were both women, it took me a while to get my feet back under me regarding the interconnection of the characters. Though, I'm happy to say, I eventually did.
The characters of this story were strong. I liked the main character. I connected to the others. A lot of them were making second best choices or the vest choices available in the hard circumstances. That felt pretty real. It felt like people I might know.

Amber Tyler has a fabulous life. She has two loving children, a supermodel girlfriend and a career as a successful author. While in the process of working on her latest novel, Amber suffers a massive heart attack and is forced to put her book on the back burner. After recuperating, she's eventually prompted by her agent to finish her book, but before she can do that she discovers someone has stolen her manuscript, published her book and is taking all the credit for her hard work. Amber is determined to regain rightful ownership of her book, but doing so proves to be far more difficult than she ever imagined. The stress is more than Amber can handle and what follows from there is a self-destructive downward spiral of events.

The book synopsis for Copyright A Novel is deceiving. This book was not so much about the theft and subsequent publication of a manuscript as it was about the main character's struggle with alcohol and drug addiction - something that was not at all mentioned in the book's description. Without giving away any spoilers, I will say that Amber's rapid decline was excellently portrayed, however. I did have a problem with the behavior of Amber's girlfriend and to some extent her son's (who seemed like a bit of a pothead) attitude. These two characters where aware that Amber was a recovering addict, they knew how stressful and upsetting the manuscript theft was for her, yet they didn't foresee it as a possible catalyst to her falling off the wagon.

Early on, I figured out who was behind the stolen manuscript, but the author's writing was so suspenseful and gripping that I honestly didn't know how things would all come together in the end. Some of the story was over the top - for one, few authors have as much cash as Amber seemed to have at her disposal.
