Every day brings new surprises. Occasionally, readers contact me and tell me how much they liked the book, and these are my favorite surprises. Sometimes I get reviews on Goodreads. Sometimes on Amazon.com. Today, I went to Amazon.co.uk for no other reason than to see Kick selling in pounds-sterling (answer: £ 1.91). But what I found there was just the tip of the iceberg: 3 reviews I didn’t know about, each 5 stars. They’d come in over the last couple of days, following my free promotion. It’s the neatest thing in the world to see people in another country reading and enjoying my writing.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be Big in Japan?

Very cool. And I love the preppy video.
Hah, preppy video 🙂 Me 2.
Ah, they’re wonderful, aren’t they. And from such prolific, genuine reviewers who don’t always award five stars. When’s the paperback out?
Paperback: it was supposed to be November, but we hit some budget hurdles this month so it’s probably going to be more like Jan or Feb. I want to do a good job, so will pay for the formatting through the same person who did my cover.
Reviewers: yeah, it always tickles me when I get 5 stars from people who give a lot of other ratings. My favorite so far was a lady who gives between 1 and 5 stars, but went 18 reviews in a row without a single 5 star, until mine. A happy day.
Thanks for the comment 🙂
