Your Review Is Welcome In a Writer’s Neighbourhood.

Each review is wanted,
Each review is good,
Your review is welcome
In a writer’s neighbourhood.

Over the past year I’ve asked book bloggers to consider reviewing ‘It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In‘.

16 gave joyous reviews. 15 said love to and are pending. I am fortunate to have had such good responses. 95 no reply yet. Mind you, most warn they get many requests and may not reply.  100 possibles bookmarked for next year. For now they are busy with kids, health, studies, life. These book bloggers get no money by the way and do it for love when they can.

Besides bloggers, a dozen people, unasked and out of the blue troubled to post their thoughts. Others took the time to take pics of my book in their hands, or paws, and to post those pictures on their social media accounts, which is also great.

I thank you all. It is not just helpful and pleasing, friends, it is crucial.

It takes a lot of time away from writing to search for and ask these good people to help but it has to be done because without reviews a writer will sink into a terrible place called (shudder), Oblivion.

In these days of Amazonian style algorithms all recognition matters. A review on Amazon or on Goodreads or on Barnes and Noble or Chapters Indigo is excellent, even a short one.  Some for ‘It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In‘ have been only a line or three long.  If you are stuck for something to say, or the time to say it, it is also grand when you simply plonk a paw down on those star ratings. They all get counted by those algorithms.

Also, every Like and Share on your social media helps a lot. Keep them coming and Mawson’s books, and the books of all writers, can bravely continue out into the wide bright world.
