Don’t forget

Don’t forget… wise words seldom heeded.

DooRFrame Books

Please don’t forget, writers write to be read. We don’t — for the most part, that is — write for therapy ( I hate that thought wherever it is expressed for I no longer write for therapeutic reasons; I may have done so when I was 14 years old and in a perpetual state of angst but now I write for the sake of writing, for the love of writing, for the joy of reading. )

At any rate, please don’t forget, a book is meant to be read — once it is written.

The novelist’s greatest joy is to write the novel, but the novel’s joy lies in the mind of its reader.

Another review for Ariel’s Cottage (won’t find)

BookCover4AsC  GO HERE, it’s the second review listed.

Here is the newest review for Ariel’s Cottage.  I’m very excited about it because someone who normally doesn’t read this type of story really liked it.  That alone says a lot about how good a read it is.  I wish more would consider it.

Also available in Kindle as A Price for Love: Ariel’s Cottage.

How To Get Amazon’s Top Customer Reviewers To Review Your Book | The Creative Penn

Here’s a site touted as the most followed site by writers.  I found it because I get emails regularly from a publish-yourself publisher who posts her work.  I don’t use the publisher, but I have learned a lot from their various articles.  I have to study this site closer myself and follow-up.  Getting professional-type reviews without paying a fee is very difficult, especially for the self-published author.

If you want to laugh…I sent an email to the New York Times to get my book on their long list of requested reviews.  It’s been a couple of months and I’m still waiting.

I’ve sent a PDF copy to a reviewer living in Germany.  It could be months before he got to it.  I’m hoping this will be the one worth waiting for.

In the meantime, I have a couple of friends with professional attitudes whose reviews will certainly prove worthy.

It’s the wait that’s stressful.  Amazon requires so many reviews, at least twenty-five, before anything begins to happens.  I’m still counting down…slowly, very slowly.
