Any time Dr. Sarah from Dear Author even LOOKS at one of my books, I color myself thrilled. I enjoy her reviews, and she’s articulate about what she likes and what she doesn’t. I’m a fan. So when her review started out:
Dear Ms. Maxfield:
This was a fascinating novel. I’m still not sure what to make of it, but I couldn’t put it down and enjoyed reading it.
I’m like… YEAH! Put me down for a big win. Anytime I can make ANY reader turn pages and enjoy something, I’m good. And even though as I read the review I realized she had some questions and some concerns, I thought to myself, well…in a screwball comedy, if you give a reader a good time, if they enjoyed it… That’s a BIG WIN.
She also said:
It wasn’t as confusing when I was reading it. You have a gift for writing that makes me just dive into and float with the current of the narrative. It works in the story itself and makes me want to keep reading.
(*sighs* so kind) For the rest of the review, go HERE
Thanks, Dr. Sarah. I’m delighted that you had a good time reading the book. And I’m thrilled by what you said and the grade I got,
I wish I’d done as well in Algebra and Trig back in the day… 😀
And if we ever meet, I’m buying you a pint and thanking you personally for all your reviews, not just mine.
Thanks for taking the time,
