I know it’s only Tuesday, but what a crazy week! My kids are off school for exams, so I’m taking them to see the dentist, doctor and to get their eyes tested, plus I’m trying to finish all the necessary planning for hubby’s 40th birthday party this Saturday. My email is backing up, I have some lovely reporting issues with royalties to straighten out and a dozen things sit on my critical to do list, growing mold.
But then THIS happened:
The Emotion Thesaurus has 500 reviews on Amazon. Can you believe it? Holy zombie cows, I never in a million years ever expected so many people would so kindly take the time to offer their thoughts on our first book. Thank you all SO, SO much! If you had any doubts about how much this helps authors, read some of the later reviews. A lot of them start with “I didn’t quite know what this book would be like, but I trusted the reviews and am so glad I did.”
Some authors say they don’t read reviews, and maybe they don’t. I do. I read each one and appreciate the time people took to weigh in, even if the book turned out to not be their cup of tea. So again, thank you all for sharing your opinions. I hope that the Positive
and Negative Trait Thesaurus books can match this some day. (And if you have either of these books and would like to leave a review, please click on the picture below!)
Becca is in the writing cave, cooking up some awesome fiction. This month she’s Nanoing, so please cheer her on if you run into her on Facebook or Twitter. In the meantime, I have a few exciting posts to share with you:
The awesome Chuck Sambuchino of Writer’s Digest is hosting me as I discuss Conferencing for Introverts and how to both survive and THRIVE in the conference environment.
The Seekerville Community has opened their doors to me as well, where I discuss the 10 Reasons Why Our Heroes Need Flaws.
Finally, DIYMFA (Do It Yourself MFA) has posted my 8 Online Tools To Keep Words Flowing. So if you have a “Butt-in-chair” problem, I hope you’ll check it out!
Here’s to a productive week for all! 🙂
