My serial novel Dosterra has received it’s first review from Fiona’s Book Blog. First, I would like to say that I think Fiona’s Book Blog is a great resource to readers and writers alike. It is all too common today for reviews to be dishonest, or simply not helpful. This blog is one that provides the honest opinion of it’s author, providing useful information to potential readers and real feedback to writers.
This is apparent in the review of Dosterra, which based on chapters 0ne-six was given 3.5/5 stars. Now my ego of course would prefer something more like 5/5. However, as I have discussed before, I am learning to write a novel. Key word learning. It’s not perfect, and I need people to tell me how it is not perfect if I’m going to improve. This review points out that it took me a couple of chapters to find my feet with Dosterra. I’d love to go back in time and fix it, but since the science in my story does not (yet) exist in real life, that is not an option.
The best I can do is learn and move forward. Reviewers like Fiona’s Book Blog can help me do that. 🙂
