They say that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, and so, in the interest of full disclosure, I present my first professional review from IndieReader.com:
It is a mixed bag, to tell you the truth. And I rather expected that. I tend to be a “glass half empty” kind of guy, and focus on the negatives, but there is positive stuff here as well. I think the reviewer got both my strengths and weaknesses down fairly accurately (I do have some issues with the review, of course, and I will address those in a future post), but he did say he found the novel entertaining and enjoyable. And at the end of the day, that’s what I set out to do. Sounds like a win to me.
Not too bad for a first novel, I think. And it won’t be my last. My best work is yet to come.
