Remember that book giveaway I did at Goodreads back in October? The main reason that writers do those — I mean, the main reason aside from our inherently generous and giving natures, of course — in in the hopes that some of the people who receive your book might review it on the site.
So I’ve been sitting back and patiently hoping for reviews ever since. (Well, as patiently as I ever do anything, anyway.) I’d kind of assumed that when someone reviewed my book, I’d automatically get an email letting me know.
Well, either my assumption was wrong, or the notification ended up buried in my email somewhere, because when I looked at the Goodreads page for “Slices” today, I was surprised and delighted to see that there are in fact already reviews on it!
Check them out! Great comments like:
I do not like short stories, but I liked these short stories. I do not like spooky stories, but I liked these scary stories. What does that mean? You have a new fan.
[...] I was pleasantly surprised by how varied, and interesting, each of the stories in this anthology truly were. Montoure uses familiar tropes such as vampires and ghosts, and yet twists them into a very different re-telling of the usual stories told again and again in our current culture.
An interesting collection of horror stories. Some were great, others not so much.
Hmmm. Well, maybe not that last one. Heh.
It’s great that this book is starting to get out there and find readers, and so much fun to see how people are reacting to it. Very, very gratifying.
(Hey, if you don’t have a copy yet, and you’re the kind of person who likes writing reviews — contact me. I’m happy to give away free e-book editions to people who will promise they’ll post an honest review on Amazon. Thanks!)
