When a 3 star book review made me stand up and shout hurray!Posted: September 27, 2013
I don’t check the listings of my books on Barnes and Noble’s Nook very often. Most of my sales are on Kindle. A week ago, however, I checked B&N and found the first review there for my vampire novella, New Vampire in Town. It had 3 stars.
Oh no, I thought, she must have hated it. Do I want to look at what she said? Not sure. Be brave, I said to myself. Read it. So I did and I could hug whoever wrote the review. She gave it three stars because it was short. (The writer in me says–it’s a novella. Novellas are short.) And then the reviewer wrote : “I’d like to read more by this author” Nicer words this author has never read! So “Thank you” to whoever wrote the review. And hang in there. I am about half way through a full length novel based on the vampires, Cate and Conrad, and their efforts to live normal lives in this world. Cate gets into a web enterprise and, of course, that gorgeous vampire Jack the Surfer is still around causing problems in the new book.
Funny follow-up. I checked B&N to get the link, below, and discovered that Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot is listed right beside New Vampire in Town. I love it!
