Blog Reviews!!!

A friend of a friend put me together with Blog Friendly PR. Basically the PR rep Nina Say, set up a bunch of bloggers who were interested in reading my books, and I sent them all a copy to read and review. So far, I've found only a few of the reviews, but each one is different and very helpful.

The thing I've found that almost all are saying, and breaks my heart, is that there are grammatical errors a plenty. Of course I knew this, I'm a self-published author, unless you have a couple grand to spend on an editor, editing yourself, and having friends help is the only option.

Sadly this option leaves for many mistakes. I apologize to the bloggers that took the time out of their lives to read my messy stories.

Now for the good part. Everyone had nice things to say regardless of the grammatical errors. They enjoyed the stories, and the mythology. (I heart mythology) Needless to say they are all sweet little fairies of information. I'm so glad Nina helped me reach them, and I'm so glad to read their words. I really hope that time, and experience will fix the problems with my errors. Maybe an editor guardian angel will swoop in and offer to clean them up for free. I won't hold my breath though!

An extra set of eyes is always a good thing. I can't say enough good stuff about this experience and I don't even have all of the reviews yet!!!

Here is a list of what I've found so far.

For The Wild Hunt:

Again I want to thank the Bloggers. I know how hard it is to set aside time to read, and to give it to Self-published writers is even harder. You never know what you're going to get when you crack open that book.

Scent Hound Book Trailer

Usually I make these things before a book release. Usually....for some reason on top of my formatting problems, My Movie was giving me hell as well. Every time I tried to open the file and make changes, move text boxes etc. My Movie would freeze and then shut down.....without saving my changes.

So in an attempt to adapt to my pain in the ass book trailer making software I started saving after every change, and I do mean EVERY. CHANGE.

About every ten seconds I hit the save button. It took forever but eventually it got done. I'm nothing if not adaptable. So screw you My Movie I won.....haha. No amount of annoying freezing was going to hold me back. And in the words of someone far smarter and more eloquent, Adapt or Die.

So without tooting my own horn anymore and becoming increasingly obnoxious here is the book trailer for Scent Hound.
