Two weeks ago, I had posted about the great review my book The Labyrinthine Journey received from Literary Titan. Any writer will tell you that it is gratifying and pleasing to get reviews. It is validation that someone has spent their valuable time reading your book. As a writer, I am very grateful to those readers for their time and to those who write a review, even if they didn’t like the story. Thank you so very much!
Happy New Year, good people! I hope you had a great time celebrating and saying goodbye to 2018 and welcoming 2019.
What I am about to share with you is not what I planned to write about, but as they say you go with the flow.
It has been over a month since Boxed in a Curse was published as an eBook and it is stressful time for any writer who is waiting to read their first review, whether it the first book or tenth. In any case, you wonder how your story is received. Of course, on an intellectual level you know not everyone will like what you write but you hope someone will pick up and give it a go. That’s all you really want. On an emotional level, your gut churns, the acids build and your fingernails take a beating. You really want readers to like your book.
This is the first review for my fourth short story, and just like the release of the previous stories, it has been an anxious wait. Carrie Slager, The Mad Reviewer kindly agreed to read my version of the Pandora myth and has posted a review on her blog. I do hope you head over and read what she wrote.
It would be great if you liked my Facebook page, if you haven’t been there as yet.
