My First Book Review on Secondhand Shoes

 

Secondhand_Shoes[1]

William Kendall, at Speak of the Devil, has posted a review. It brought tears to my eyes. Go here to read

Having the novel out there, even in paperback, is surreal. Personally, I’ve sold almost every book I’ve bought at cost. I started out with thirty-two and now have ten left. My marketing plan is to plant seeds without shoving it down peoples’ throats. So I’ll be doing some fundraisers within the next couple of months. Next month, I’ll be hosting a book party at Sweetman’s little eyewear shop. And once I know when for sure it will be up for the Kindle, I’ll be having a blog party and giving away free ebooks.

Let me know if any of you are interested in helping out. Just say so in the comment box. Hoping to have a date soon.

Hugs and chocolate,

Shelly

  1. That is a good review! I enjoyed the first two chapters a lot (and I don't normal read anything paranormal). The characterization is strong - I feel like I know the characters already.

    1. I'm so glad. The paranormal isn't the scary part in the story. And tried to make Gram as tangible as possible.

  13. Good reviews are the best, aren't they? But if I believe the good ones about my work, then I have to believe the bad ones, too -- right?

    1. Reviews are an opinion. Look at Fifty Shades of Grey, The Twilight Series...Bad reviews...***shrugs***are a part of life if one is a writer.

  16. Can't believe I missed this. Of course I want to feature you on my blog. Would you like to write something for the Desert Rocks? Have you ever been to the desert? Is there anything in your book about a desert? Find a connection and it would make a cute story for my blog! I'd love it and I'd make all the links to Amazon or wherever you'd like it to click to. Hugs.
