Another Addicted Reader

defiance_on_indian_creekDefiance on Indian Creek, continues to lure readers into the intriguing story of thirteen-year-old, Mary Shirley, who lived in western Virginia at the dawn of the American Revolution.

I received this sweet email from a new fan.

“I wanted to let you know that I started reading your book as soon as we got home. I read eight chapters before putting it down to go to bed. I was unable to sleep so decided to read a little more. I finally put it down after I read the complete book at 3:45 this morning 🙂 The book is wonderful and just the type I love to read. I am waiting on the next one to be published! I will be sure to urge my family, friends, and clients to purchase your book, leave a review and watch for new releases. I will be leaving reviews after Christmas. Thank you for such a great book that kept me wanting to keep reading and excited for the next one.”

The next one is Fleeing the Shadows (Dangerous Loyalties Book Two)

Learning From Picky Readers

Call me weird, but I read one star ratings before choosing a book to read from Amazon. Some authors complain that competitor authors troll and leave bad reviews. I have no idea about that, but I find the brutally honest one star reviews point out characterization and plot flaws. With the bad side pointed out, I move up the star ladder. By the time I read the last two five star reviews, I know if I’m buying. As a newby writer, I pay attention to the one star complaints in order to learn what works and doesn’t work, from other picky readers.
