Blushing At Review

I know reveiws are there for the readers, and at best all I can do is say thank you, but this following book review of Don't... stunned me a little. I wasn't aware they were reviewing (the reviewer bought the book), so it came as a good surprise (warning: the novel made the reviewer swear).

Sinfully Sexy Book Review

They gave me book of the month, too. January

I was amazed by the coverage and interest the review caused (I know that's the point of reviews etc, but I'm still very new on the author side!).

Thank you hardly seems enough sometimes....

My question, Fallen, is WHY? Why would you expect anything less? I'm very new to AW but I already know you're an expert around here. (Especially with crazy grammar Qs! ) Frankly, I wouldn't expect anything BUT glowing reviews. This was the line that resonated:

"...there is not a moment of complacency in this book..."

That describes the style of the person I recognize from this forum. Big Congrats to you, but then, you've earned all the kudos by demonstrating your careful attention to your craft.

(Okay, I guess it's good to blush...shows proper humility to the publishing gods, I s'pose.)

Thank you L.Y., and thank you ElaineA I think, in general, it's going to be a mixed bag of reviews overall, the like/loathe aspect etc. It's just good to get these sort along the way
