Praise for Awaken!

So, a few weeks back I was a little down about a bad review, a two (2) star review to be exact. Okay, it wasn’t all bad the author did say he/she would be reading my next novel, but still the words “…easy to put down.” and “…lacks the professional touches with structure, hooks and cliffhangers” kept running through my head. I told myself over and over, “DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO REVIEWS!” but I’m a writer… of course I pay attention to reviews.

So, today as I was surfing the web I once again glanced at my book on and low and behold… a four (4) star review had been bestowed to Awaken. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to the reviewer for making my day just a little brighter. What did the review say? Well, let me show you…


Okay, yes this reviewer did point out that there are a few grammatical errors in the book, but also said that you get past them because you are too immersed in the story… IMMERSED IN THE STORY!!! WooHoo… What a wonderful complement. That anyone is immersed in my story and my characters is beyond amazing and wonderful to me. I am so thankful for this reader and hope that others can read and enjoy my story as much as she has.

Well what are you waiting for? Go download your copy, and while you’re at it go ahead and pick up ‘BEGINNINGS’ too.

  1. Congratulations on the good review! It is always affirming of your artistry when an unbiased party, external to your daily affairs, gives good feedback. I am a self-published author as well and I have always found it difficult to get people to review my work at all. But one of my reviews was from a Top 50 Amazon Reviewer and he gave me five stars. I thought my head was going to explode with glee.

    Anywho, I’ll definitely pick up a copy of your work and review it for you. My book is actually free on Amazon through the end of tomorrow, so if you are interested in literary short stories you should give it a shot.

    P.S. Don’t feel obligated to pick up my book. I just thought I’d mention it since it’s free this weekend.

      Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I look forward to reading what you think of my books after you read them. I’m heading over to amazon now to try and find your book… Why didn’t you leave the title? Lol at least I have your name.

      Happy reading 🙂


      • Hahaha….I often forget the most obvious of things 🙂

        The title is “Stories of Who We Are and How We Eat.” I hope you enjoy it!

        P.S. I still get a bit nervous whenever I speak to someone who specifically tells me they are going to read my work. Will they like it? Will they not? Will they get halfway through and toss it to the fireplace proclaiming me to be a hack?….How about you? Still get that nervousness? 🙂

      Stories of Who we are and How we Eat…
      I love the title and I can’t wait to read it.

      I’ll give a review when I’m done.

      Happy Reading
