OK, so indie author gets positive attention and goes completely batshit crazy. It’s all Theodora Taylor at http://irbookreviews.com/ ‘s fault. I was checking the reviews of my last book The Hick and The Hippie to see what fresh horrors awaited me – I am exaggerating, a little – and I find she’s left me the most generous and kind review.
I felt 10 feet tall after I read it.
Really. It’s like someone shot me in my writing arm with steroids. I’m praying for the day to end – and to reclaim my focus so I can get some frickin’ work done – so I can go home and get back to work. Theodora posted my cover and all sorts of other promo goodness, and even better? I don’t know this woman. This was completely organic, unsolicited, random, and I absolutely adore it. The review wasn’t perfect – what is? – but I will take it – you will get it back by prying it from my cold, dead claw-like grasp – and pray for more of the same.
Spoiler alert: Mush ahead: I wish there was some way to reach out to the people who like my stuff so I could tell them how glad I am that they do. I write for three reasons: passion, freedom and legacy, and readers = legacy. When people reach out, it means a lot.
