As the reviews for More Than a Risk continue to come in I feel like I need to send a quick thank you note to all those who have read and commented on my newest novel.
This is what your reviews have done for me:
- Learned readers DO NOT like being surprised by a cliffhanger. I purposefully changed my original planned ending of MTAR so it wouldn’t be as ‘cliffy’ as More Than a Threat.
- Made me very aware of all the amazing bloggers out there who read and write detailed reviews just because they love to read. No payment. Sometimes not even a thank you. Which brings me to my next point…
- I’m not technical, my best friend had to set up my facebook page, so knowing how to tag, hashtag, etc to make sure the blogger I’m thanking knows I’m thanking them has been a challenge. Especially since I work about 50 hours a week and have to play catch up at night. I try to express my gratitude to each individual person who writes a review I just hope you can actually see it 🙂
- Some people will like my writing and some people won’t which is okay. Not everyone is going to love my story either and that is okay. But what I love about each person who has written a review gives at least a few things they enjoyed. That means the world to me. That and when you don’t like something you tell me exactly why which only makes my next book better – stronger.
So this is my blanket thank you note in case I accidentally miss thanking you personally. You taking the time to read my books AND write a review that helps shape me as an author…I don’t even have the words. What you do by writing those reviews isn’t just so other people can know to buy it or not, it’s for me. And I realize that. And I thank you for that. You are making me better. YOU!
I’m grateful. I’m overwhelmed by the reviews that say they love my writing. I’m blessed to be surrounded by readers and bloggers who are trying to help me craft my writing style.
Thank you, readers.
Thank you, bloggers.
