Book Blogger Reviews make GREAT paperweights!  You just bring it up on your screen, then set you monitor on any papers you want held down.

 ;D  :D  ;)

Hah! But I have a laptop.... :)

"The nameless girl sang, her voice cascading over notes and words as a brook over smooth river-rock...."

In a mining town filled with forgotten men and used up women, a handcuffed girl and her deaf guard arrive just as a blizzard descends. Lured by the girl's singing and driven by an old obsession, one man releases an ancient spirit that could destroy the town and the estate it supports.

As the year wears on, the murderous spirit tightens its grip on the town and the estate, living on an ever-rising wind that descends from the mountain. Brave and holy men seek to destroy the evil, but few return alive. Those who do return have few wits left.

When others fail, a donkey handler named Clem must risk the simple, peaceful life he's carved for himself to save it from destruction. Unfortunately, Clem knows that when the wind comes down the mountain, even the most steadfast men can't resist its call.

One reviewer said "Silver Thaw" pulls "something out of the box that's a must for anyone fond of fantasy or things macabre. Brilliant." Read the full review here:

"Silver Thaw" is a debut novella--a perfect read for a winter afternoon by the fire.

Thanks, all. :)

I was only thinking of posting a line or two in the description, and after the blurb about the book. I will ask him about posting it as a professional review and/or posting it to Amazon. He did rate it on Goodreads, so that was helpful. I hate to be a pest... I don't want to be "that author," you know?

@foreverjuly, LOL. It *does* sound like an Oompa Loompa song. Thanks for my morning laugh.

Appreciate the advice!

Hello, all,

I'm new here, and new to Kindle publishing as well, so forgive me for etiquette errors... I tend to learn as I go.

My novella was given an outstanding review from a blogger, and I want to know how you publicize things like that. Do you put quotes in your book description on Amazon? Is there a way to link to blog reviews?

I only have one blog review so far, but I'm hoping a couple of others come through for me soon, so any help about the best way to publicize would be great. I've tweeted and Facebooked it... I can put it on my own blog... Just wondering what I might be missing...

Thanks for helping a newbie!
