Would it come as a surprise to learn that I rarely read my reviews? Actually, I do read the ones that are brought to my attention...but the truth is, this writer gets waaaaay too emotional about such things.
When I published my first story (under a pen name) and a reader trashed the technical aspects of the writing (not the story itself) I was so mortified that it took a year and a half for me to dip my toe in the publishing waters again!
Coming back STRONG after something that almost defeated me, the pen name got kicked to the curb, I "grew a set" ::giggle snort:: and took a leap of faith.
Why? Because I felt the stories I had to share were worth telling and a few misplaced commas and some sloppy head-hopping in the narrative didn't change that.
I'm lucky enough to have a kick-ass assistant who also happens to be a 23 years long BFF who stays on top of reviews and stuff like that.
Today--she posted this marvelous reader comment about Family Justice Book 1 ~ ALWAYS.
All joking aside, I teared up.
Those Justice boys are close to my heart. After spending so much time developing a cadre of strong, unique characters...that a reader found something positive to say and share about them ~ well, it touched me deeply.
So....sharing is necessary! Please click the link :-)
I'd love to hear your thoughts and yes! There's more Family Justice to come.
