Amazon Book Reviews

As a writer, I read the customer reviews on my books on Amazon regularly. It’s hard not to become obsessed by them and like any writer I am quite sensitive to criticism. Such sensitivity no doubt is from a lack ofconfidence as I’m relatively new to writing fiction. In my real job of course, I’m much more confident as you can’t do that job if you aren’t. Most reviewers are fair and looking at what they write demonstrates that it is a matter of taste and therefore subjective whether one likes a book or not.

Independent Publishing

 
Working with a small independent press likeFingerpressmight to some, seem hard work. My situation shows it isn’t. You write your story;your publisher likes it and then what? Big publishing houses get your book out there in their impersonal way and although you are assigned an editor to workwith, calls will probably remain unanswered and everyone is busy. Not so in a small press and certainly not withFingerpress. You know who you’re dealing with and the attention you get in revision is amazing.
