Book review: A comment back from the author


As some of you know I review books for a few sites and also on my own. I do an unbiased opinion of what I read. Now and then I get a response from an author on what they think of what I came up with. I received this in the mail and it made me feel pretty good. This is just one of the reasons I do this but it is high on the list: helping other authors out.

Here it is.

I wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for your kind review

Your constructive criticism was well taken.  It appears that I did occasionally “telegraph” a succeeding scene or chapter.  Reviewers like you are teaching me so much about how to sharpen my writing skills.  My 2nd novel should be so much the better for it.  I’m very grateful for that.

So, please accept my thanks for your well-done review.  I wish you good health, peace, and success in all of your endeavors.


I’m glad to help other fellow authors. It makes the effort worthwhile.
