Book Reviewers are SUPERHERO’S!

 

SUPERHERO!

Book Reviewers are SUPERHERO’S!

 

Sometimes, I think reviewers underestimate their power. They may think, “Oh, I’m just reading a book and will write a few lines telling what I think about the story.”

When actually, they are doing soooo much more.

I say to you, THE REVIEWER, YOU ARE A SUPERHERO! and your super power is writing a review.

To us, the Author, we rely on readers much more than you comprehend. We, the author depend on feedback so that we can write what readers enjoy, make ourselves better writers and just to know that people read our stories. Positive feedback builds our self-esteem and confidence to keep producing bigger and better stories, much like a puppy wagging his tail when given attention.

 

So, I want to thank all of the reviewers for taking the time to write a few lines about our books. You are a SUPERHERO  and writing a review is your SUPER POWER!

 

Please Re-Blog to show our reviewers how much they are appreciated.

 

My book, “The Chocolatier” is open for reviews if anyone is interested.
