Reviews and Craziness

This will just be a quick post.

I've been spending a large amount of time submitting my novel to book review blogs, hoping that more people will be exposed to my writing and decide to take a look. I've gotten a few people expressing interest, but most have such a huge stack of reading material that they either turn me away or tell me it will be months. I'm fine with the wait. I can be patient and am just happy that more people want to read it.

One person read it in like two days and posted a review. Some bad, but mostly good. I'm happy with having some issues to overcome and work to do. It is my first novel after all. Even the greatest authors have mistakes in their first. Here is a link to the review. And another link to a little interview with her. Thank you all for the support. I am nothing without my readers.

I’ve read some good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting.

...aaaaand my readers are still waiting for that youtube velociraptor youtube impression!

Seriously though, thanks for participating, and let me know when you have your next book ready. I'd love to do your next review.

Candice said...

Good luck with all the reviews! It's great that you're getting the word out there! :)

Brent Wescott said...

Read the reviews and interview. Good stuff, Maynard.

read the review and agree with most of it. I think the book took me four days to read, but that's because of my children's interruptions. I liked it, but I found myself confused at first how all the stories fit together; in the end it all made sense.

A decent review! Congratulations.

Michael Offutt said...

That's a great review Charles. I'd be proud to have something like that. Four stars out of five is nothing to sneeze about.

@Anom- Thank you.

@Maria- I know, I know. I'm going to make my wife video me this week making a crazy fool of myself. I should have it up on Youtube soon. I'll share the link with people after that...maybe.

Thank you, Maria. It was fun. I'll definitely let you know when I have more books done.

@Candice- Thank you. I hope it is.

@Brent- Thank you.

@Ruthykins- Thank you too. That's what I was going for, confuse and then make sense.

@Kerry- Thank you.

@Michael- I'm pretty happy with it. I think four stars are more honest and I like finding out what can be improved. Thank you.

You want me to go 'round with my baseball bat and see if I can get that fifth star for you?

@ Doug ... Dear Mr. Stephens, that is terrifying, not to mention unwise, as I am actually a ninja.

@ Charles - Dibs on link to video!

So many books, so little time said...

Doug. No need for violence...especially when ninjas are involved.

Maria. I'll have it soon. I'm getting my nephews involved. I need to run at a target and it's funnier when they scatter. :)

So Many Books. Thank you.
