Twists and Turns

I really enjoy keeping my readers guessing, so I like to add several twists and turns to many of my mystery stories in hopes that the ending will come as complete surprise. If I can get the reader to think or say, “Wow, I didn’t see that coming?”  then I feel like I’ve done my job.

In a recent review of my novella, Beneath the Roses a kind reader posted that the story was good and had a lot of  twists in the plot, then added that perhaps it had too many twists.

I’m not sure what to make of that? I guess it’s possible to have so many twists and turns in a story or novel, that it takes away from the plot. In that case can it still be considered a good story?

Just wondering?

The Future of Amazon Book (and Product) Reviews

I found an interesting article on the future of book and product reviews at Amazon.com

This doesn’t effect me at the moment because I’m still trying to find my audence and get people to actually review my books, but it could change things once I reach a certian number of reviews over the next few years.

I understanding why Amazon is doing this, but I’m not sure it will be a good thing for Indie authors and their book sales.

Opps. That Book Review’s not Verified

Happy Reading!

My first negative review.

2016-02-17 09.17.34I finally recieved my first negative review on Amazon and Goodreads.

I guess it was only a matter of time before it happened, but I always wondered how I would react to reading a less than flattering review and I have to say that it’s not as bad as I thought. As a matter of fact, I feel more like a writer now, than I did before the negative review was posted.

As a author you always hope that your stories/books are enjoyed by every person who reads them, but you also understand that it’s impossible to please everyone.Info

So thank you for reading my books and for taking the time to post your opinions, both positive and negative.

Happy Reading my friends!
