We all receive plenty of good reviews but that never dilutes the pleasure of reading a new one. It makes us want to shout about it from the rooftops because it validates all our hard work. It means we've communicated with a reader in exactly the way we set out to achieve.
I had the great pleasure of experiencing that pinnacle of pleasure in a review I came across following a Google Alert last week on Romancing the Book and that gave me the idea of doing something a little new with this blog.
I frequently post reviews of books I've read on this blog, but now I plan to open my Wednesday's Writer feature to any author who has received a great review that has afforded them real pleasure. It doesn't have to be a recent release. All I need from authors is an email with:
a copy of the review, with its link, so we can acknowledge it correctly
the blurb and buy link
a brief author bio and
jpegs of the author and the cover of the title in question.
I hope it will be a great opportunity to spread the word about good books that bring readers pleasure and for us all to share that moment of happiness you felt when you first read that special review.
