Thank You

I took a moment to visit Shelfari and noticed someone had taken time to list out all the characaters in my book 'Touched by The Devilish One".  Now all I need is for someone(s) to fill in the descriptions. That'd be cool.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to that person. It made me feel like my book was good, and came at a perfect time becasue a few people slaughtered it at good reads. Although one user gave a long, well thought out review, which I am also thankful for.

Smashwords Only Free Coupon Code for Aunt Hellen:

- Good through September 27th CODE: PD63P
- People either love it or hate it.
- Just remember it's from the POV of a disturbed person.
- Would love honest, helpful reviews.

Calling all critics:

- I just updated Touched By The Devilish One from free to paid.
- Anyone who has an interest in reading it can ask me for a free coupon.
- I would love some feedback.

Kindle Lending:

- Amazon has made this sound so good.
- I beg to differ on that point. After all, if I were a prime member and could read a book for free, I'd  
  be going for the best sellers.
- That said, since I really love Exterium, I enrolled it into the lending program.
- Again, any feedback would be terrific.
- I have received several requests for a sequel and would like to know what others would like to read.

What's Ahead:

- I am working on an erotica novel.
- This is not a subject I typically write about, but I am really enjoying the book.
- I will be publishing around the holidays under a pen name (certainly don't want to mix the kiddie 
  books up with the adult books!)
- Anyone who is interested should drop me a note.

Book Reviews

How I would love any well thought out - constructive book review for any of my stories. It really irks me when people make comments like "Bleh - mostly a waste of time." How is that helpful? And reviews that are just plain BS...Like someone stating Aunt Hellen was a 190 page book. It was only 22K words (or there abouts).

I did some searching on Amazon and discovered there is a group of hate mongers that run around trashing other peoples books, just becuase they think they are competition. That's just plain silly to me because chances are most indie authors are not going to get rich off their books. In fact, only a few traditionally published authors get wealthy.

I'm not looking to become wealthy. Writing keeps me sane and gives me purpose outside of work and family. Some people paint, some people play an instrument...I write.

I challenge anyone critical of my work to produce a detailed, informative review of why. Likewise, if someone likes my book, what was it that made it exciting to read? I'm always looking to improve, which is diffuclt when I am giving useless feedback.
