Running from 28 March through to 18 April, Desires will feature on 24 web-blogs, generating fifteen reviews, and a further thirteen for Choices and Secrets.
I read somewhere that EL James (50 Shades) told a reporter she never read reviews for her books. How is that possible! It’s like touching the tip of your tongue to a broken tooth – good or bad, you have to do it! I love reading opinions of my work, I really do. Even the negative, which luckily I haven’t had too much of. (Although there was a shocker on Amazon a year or so ago, for Choices. Two lines that made you wonder if the person had actually read the book, or was just sounding off about erotica in general!)
Thankfully, most of the reviews I have received have been thoughtful and analytical, and while I’ve proudly relished the four and five star ratings – and who wouldn’t – it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the couple of three star reviews received for Choices.
Writing is a personal journey, and while no book – or work of art or music – will ever please everyone, there’s something immensely satisfying in discovering your stories have a solid appeal, and that the characters you have conceived and nurtured have found their way into the hearts of others.
And so I will hold my breath for the next few weeks, and keep my fingers tightly crossed! Oh, and have the champagne chilling, just in case!
