Reviewing Made Easy!

Reviewing Made Easy!

I am reviewing more and more just because of the nature of the beast. I found this blog interesting. I am not a long winded reviewer. My reviews are short and most of the time sweet because I usually like what I read.

As a writer I have found out how important the book review is. I spend a lot of my day asking for reviews on Dobyns Chronicles. Everyone is buried alive by the amount of requests they get. Most of the time I get very kind responses back telling me they are just two backed up or it will be 2 or 3 months before they could possibly get to it.

I said all of this to say if you read a book then please review it on Amazon or whatever site you choose. I prefer Amazon and Goodreads , but to each his own. You can always ask where they would like a review to go.

Have a blessed day and happy reading.

I was having a conversation with Ana, a fellow reviewer with a blog HERE! about the nature of reviewing. Recently I’ve been getting a blush worthy amount of attention for my reviews, which is fantastic, but as I was telling my lady-friend, Katherine, I never set out to be a reviewer. The intention behind this blog was to create a conduit through which I could interact with my readers. That my reviews have garnered more attention than my published works is ironic, but hey, you gotta start somewhere!

Anyways, my conversation with Ana got me thinking about reviewing in a broader sense and what it means to write good reviews. I have a bathrobe and a pointy hat, but I’m not a wizard, so I can’t provide any magic answers. Or am I?

wizard Are you sure? I have a pointy hat.

What I can do, however, is provide some little tips…

I am a retired RN enjoying my retirement to the fullest. I liked adventure and travel and making friends. I have 6 dogs and 1 cat. They are like having a house full of three years olds. Now for the rest of the story. My Granddaughter and her husband now live with us and they have 4 dogs and 4 cats along with a giant Flemish Rabbit. My Granddaughter has now added beautiful, Olivia to our household. My fourth Great Grandchild. They are a large part of my life and I can't imagine them not being around. I spend most of my time sitting in front of my computer working on my latest book or talking about Essential Oils. On the personal side, I'm married to a wonderful man who spoils me and I love it. I am very much a country girl. I love living on our 5 acres on Pole Cat Creek watching the deer and other animals occasionally stick their​ heads out of the trees. It's a fun life.

  1. Hi,
    As an author myself (and an avid reader) I have to disagree with one of your points. I love reading in my genre and read about a book a week. No way do I have time to read a book that, for me, would be a one or two star review. I occasionally read a 3-star if the story captivates me enough to stay with it.
    I don’t believe it’s fair to leave a review for a book I didn’t finish. (did once, and caught hell for it!)
    But what I always do, is leave a review for all books that I finish and take time to say what I liked and didn’t like about it.
    People are busy; they don’t have time to read books they hate, and unfortunately, many leave reviews when only reading a page or a chapter. Or even sample pages!
