"These are the kind of stories that made me love reading"
« on: August 03, 2011, 07:06:17 AM »
Can I post this here, or only in the bazaar?  I'm so pleased, I hope I'm not breaking rules.   My first review on a blog, and one on Goodreads.

Jesse Breytenbach said: "These are the kind of stories that made me love reading in the first place. I highly recommend that you buy a copy, and prepare to stay awake till you've finished." http://jezzeblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/strange-neighbours.html

And on Goodreads, Jayson said: "This is a great collection of short stories. Some are dark, some mysterious, some surprise and all of them are engaging and fun."

This is the first feedback I've ever received from readers, and as I'm new to writing, it's a good feeling. Had to share :)

Goodreads reviews are tough and truthful.  These are dedicated readers and when they give you a thumbs up, it's something to treasure.  Congratulations.

True!  My own reviews there are fairly tough, usually. I've just joined recently, great place.
