Hello dear reader,
how are things in your corner of the world? How many books have you read lately? It struck me recently, being an author, that so often you will hear people say, “I love reading/I am an avid reader.” How often do you hear people say, “I love giving book reviews?” My guess is never. In the almost 1,000 downloads I have had of my first e-book, The Harpy Chronicles – The Namari Book I, I have a total of 7 reviews. Yes, just 7… Sad face.
I put my heart and soul into a writing project, I agonise over the plot, I literally dream about the storyline, I envision, I create, I lovingly sculpt the details and it’s a joy to me to share my vision with the world, with you… So sad that so few do not leave even a single line in response. Give a thought to the eager author next time you read a book and you’ve no idea the delight he/she will feel when you leave a few words about their work.
Don’t be daunted by having to put fingers to keyboard with the excuse that you don’t know what to say… say what you really thought! Here are A Few Tips For Writing Book Reviews. Share the love if you loved it, and be gentle if you did not… authors have feelings too and can be sensitive about their work, imagine if it was your work?
Those are just my thoughts for today. I trust you’re being true to your muse and giving your creativity a run for it’s money.
‘Til next time, thank you as always for visiting my blog.
