One of My First Reviews for Vallar.
Vallar on Amazon
I had put in for a review on this one site called Reader's Favorites. about three weeks ago. They will only post their review if you receive from 4 to 5 stars. They also have a contest going on, but I didn't enter it because it costs about $85 from what I remember.
But anyway, I am pleased with the review. Also I have received a couple of short positive reviews too, which I greatly appreciate. This has given me a boost in motivation to continue writing.
Meanwhile, I have also put in for reviews on many other sites, and I'm still waiting on those. As I mentioned before, most book reviewers are backed up these days. I've heard advice about submitting for reviews before your book is published, however, that can cause some complications. What if they want to post it somewhere, and you're book is not even out. It's hard to know how to proceed. Once you're published you move into a different kind of waiting. You go from waiting to hear about queries and book releases, to waiting for reviews, and other promotional type things. Although, the wait isn't nearly as long in comparison.
Hard work pays off. Happy writing, everyone.
