I recently received a good review of my novel, JAIDEE, from Jill on her blog, Little Hyuts.
I have to admit good reviews are nice.
As writers, we don’t have the ability to see our readers and get an honest feel for how our stories are being received. A reviewer can give that perspective.
I don’t know how other authors work but I checked out dozens of book review sites and selected about ten that I enjoyed reading. I then chose to follow them in order to get their insights on other books, and when I came out with my book, I selected a couple that would be appropriate and asked if they would review my work.
So far that has been a pleasant experience. I enjoy the interactions with the blogger and I’ve enjoyed the reviews. We can’t always get “good” reviews and sometimes the negative comments are the most helpful, but that’s a topic for another post.
Here’s a link to Jill’s blog, Little Hyuts. It includes an interview with me and an evaluation of my novel.
