There are lots of scary parts about being an author – coming up with ideas, making them work on paper, editing in a way that meets the publisher’s needs, finding a publisher in the first place… The list is long. But for me, I think the scariest part is after a book is released and you wait to hear what readers think.
So, it was a great relief for me yesterday when the first review of 1915 appeared – and it was a good one!
Opening with the words “Highly recommended.” and going on to give a really detailed run down of the book, Fran Knight from ReadPlus praises the “detailed background”, the characters “with whom students can engage”, concluding that the book is “eminently readable “.
What a heart-warming review! You can see the full review here.
Have a great day. I know I will!
(BTW I forgot to say that in amongst the scary bits there are lots of wonderful wonderful things about being an author. A review that gets what you were trying to do is one of them).
