News of Reviews

20170712_124753Thrilled to bits to report I now have three reviews on Amazon for both my books. (and one two stars on Goodreads- sad face emoji)  From what I can make out in the reams of advice, reviews make all the difference. I am ashamed to say that I always shied away from writing reviews of what I have read- until recently.  Partly because I am not a professional book reviewer, what if I say something wrong? What are customers looking for when they are choosing a new book to read? I don’t really look at the reviews myself, I choose what I am going to read next by recommendations, word of mouth.  Also, when I’m reading I think if it’s a really well known book with lots of existing reviews who cares what I think. They don’t need my review! Or do they?

I recently reviewed a book ‘Riddled With Senses’ by Petra Jacob.riddle-coverI really enjoyed reading it, so I just wrote what I thought and gave it five stars. My new plan is to continue reviewing, although  if I don’t have anything good to say, I won’t say anything at all. Hopefully the universe will pay me back.

Happy Wednesday, Samantha

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
