I am blown away and humbled by a new 5-star review on Amazon! As I have mentioned before, nothing gives me a better sense of accomplishment and validation as a writer than an excellent reader review.
In today’s turbulent world of book publishing, author’s like me who have yet to breakout as a big-time bestseller certainly don’t write for the money. Sure, it would be wonderful to live off the royalties from books I write, and I do believe I have the ability to reach that goal someday, but with my current book priced at $1.99 for the eBook version, I have to sell an incredible amount of books to pay my mortgage.
So, as I work on my next book in an effort to make writing my main profession, getting feedback from readers is essentially how I get paid. Reading this Amazon review made for a fantastic payday!
Ron writes the following review titled: IMPOSSIBLE . . . to put down
This book is impossible to put down. Extremely well written; kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. A classic, who-done-it murder mystery mixed with a modern high-tech plot, reflecting the big-brother privacy concerns that have been debated at length in our new mobile world. The characters are very believable; I found myself in the story with them throughout the book. Would make an awesome movie! Encore Mr. Springer!
My thanks to all my readers who have taken the time to review The WILCO Project–it means so much to me and provides motivation to complete the next book.
