This makes my day
« on: July 02, 2013, 06:52:54 PM »
Every now and then I wonder whether I should unsubscribe from Google Alerts. It kinda feels presumptuous to be alerted to anything that contains your own name. Well, maybe not to some people, but it does to me.

But then, this morning, it brought me this link of a completely unsolicited review: http://justaddstory.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/review-shifting-reality-by-patty-jansen/

It's always cool to read a positive review, especially from someone who 'gets' your book - 'grats! :)

Good for you!  And it isn't presumptuous, it's business.   :D

Hey - great!  I find Google Alerts to be bit slow and unreliable though...so once in a while I do a Google Search with my name, web-address url etc. and discover amazing things that Google never alerted me to!
