Sweet Pursuits was published just six days ago and I’m enormously grateful to those who have already read and reviewed it online. And I’m extra relieved that you seem to like it! Here’s a word cloud of what you’ve been saying:
Obviously this is a nervous time for an author so I’m delighted to see comments from book bloggers and on Amazon like:
- “The plot line was embellished with great descriptions of the characters and locations, and Pauline’s humor is really wonderful.”
- “Another little bit of book heaven!”
- “I also liked the fact that it wasn’t really such a blatant obvious romance, it builds super slow and steady.”
- “This book was a joy to read. Great writing with a exceptionally up beat storyline. Fantastic.”
- “Sweet Pursuits grabs the readers attention with the first page and if you manage to set the book down it won’t be for long.“
- “This was my first chance to enjoy reading Ms. Wile’s [sic] sparkling humor and talented scribblings, but I plan to follow her future efforts like an afternoon shadow.“
Many people believe that buying a book is the most important thing you can do to support an author. And, yes, a purchase is really nice, but I’m even more thrilled to get reviews. For indie authors like me without a big marketing budget, reviews are the fastest way to build credibility. And letting other potential readers know what you liked (and didn’t ) about a book is enormously helpful to them, too.
So, huge thanks to everyone who’s already added their thoughts online. If you haven’t done so yet, I hope you’ll consider writing a few words. And why not do the same for other books you’ve read recently? You might just make an author’s day.
