You know what's good for my soul?
Reading and concentrating on GOOD reviews.
Bad reviews make me feel HORRIBLE. They get into my mind and wreak havoc with my confidence--if I let them.
One writer recently told me that, for her mental health, she doesn't go to Goodreads anymore.
I understand that feeling.
So, whenever I need a pick-me-up, I read my five-star reviews.
Getting a big head in this business is impossible. Bad reviews will knock you down.
The important thing, however, is that you pick yourself up!
I just completed a four day FREE book promotion for Lancaster House. Afterwards, there's always a rash of new reviews popping up.
The below review comes from a lady in Australia. She even wrote me an email to let me know how much she loved both Lancaster House and The Middle Aisle.
It's the positive reviews that keep me moving forward.
A special thank you to all my readers who send me special messages and write amazing reviews of my books.
You have no idea how much I appreciate you!
It's been a while since i have read a perfectly executed self published book, where the characters come to life, where the lack of physical intimacy doesn't make me feel like i'm reading a book for 12 year olds or a heavily religious book, and where i cant predict what will happen next.
This book was all this. I loved the transitions between the present and the past, and i loved the psych background. The sequel..... for one i can't stand sequels...they're most often about dragging the same story a bit longer or the first book ends on an excruciating cliffhanger. This was neither.
Book 1 ends well, and book 2 just creates a new story. The epilogue of book 2 is breathtaking.
I won't say anymore. Give this book a go. I swear you won't regret it!!
