The first was a 2-star. This person felt talked to death by Frank. Okay. I can sort of see that. First person personal often comes across that way.
The one from 53 minutes ago was that the book was too slow. I have to say, that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that.
Reviews, positive, negative, or otherwise, give you insight into who reads your books. It also lets you look at your writing style from “outside” yourself.
So, the “talked to death” reviewer reminds me that I do have a tendency to write more dialog than is absolutely necessary. I know where that comes from: me. I’m intensely verbal, prone to speak my mind, and have a 7th grade sense of humor. Oh, and I’m a serious nerd.
As for the too slow comment, that could dovetail into the talked to death. Interesting points of view.
So, to my latest reviewers, I appreciate your comments. It doesn’t mean I’ll change things, since #3 is coming out in 2/15, but it allows me to think about how I write in connection to other projects.
Cheers on Digestion Day/Black Friday.
