14/10/2014: Book Reviews

Whenever an author receives a review about their book, there is a certain amount of tension that surrounds it. Will it be favourable? Will it be scathing? Will it be hard to swallow? Will it be brilliant?

Of course, not every review can be wonderful - after all we each have differing views as to what can be classed as 'wonderful'. Most of the time, if the review is 'adequate' or 'acceptable', it gives us just enough 'it was good, you can go on with your day now' to get through.

Back in April when I published my most recent book, I gave a copy to the Self Publishing Magazine at The London Book Fair and while a review wasn't guaranteed, it was accepted. Six months down the line the book has been reviewed. For this I am truly thankful.

There were one or two glitches with the book, I'm sure (nothing is utterly perfect after all and I am human), but on the whole, I am happy with the review.

If you have a copy of the book, I hope you enjoy it too. If you don't, you can get a copy from me or from this site.
