Ode to the Reviewer

Autoritratto di Scrittrice in GiardinoIt is deeply unfortunate that responding to a review is considered poor form. I wish I could personally thank anybody who took the time to read my work and leave a comment on Amazon or Goodreads. I woke today to a shiny new review for The Priest. I hope you, dear reviewer who not only bought my book, but also wrote a thoughtful comment about it, are reading this note of mine. You made my day. To and indie author, reviews are much needed oxygen.

Sometimes, when it seems that my work is slowly sinking into a black hole, I feel like screaming underwater. And I despair, because I write the whole day, seven days a week, and I wonder if I am wrong about the whole endeavor. But then, I can’t imagine doing anything else and I just keep writing the next 1000 words.

Thank you, dear reviewer, for letting me know what you thought about my books. I know you have a busy life. I know you didn’t have to. I know that there are so many things you can do with your free time, and yet, you decided to use that precious free time to write a review for one of my works. It means the world to me.
