How do feel when your book is reviewed for the first time? When someone gets what you tried to convey, isn't it great?
And when someone seems to have read another book, doesn't it feel like watching a car accident unfold or being snarked for something you didn't even say?
Which kind of review of your book do you read more, the positives or the negatives?
Shelly Arkon did something I have never read before:
She twittered and Goodread "pit-stop" reviews as she read my book. Each stop contained something new she liked. I have never seen anything like that. It made my unstable time at work easier. What a classy thing to do. Thanks, Shelly.
Oh, and what did Shelly write in her review of THREE SPIRIT KNIGHT?
"I loved this book. It was definitely unique. A little sci-fi-time travel- mixed with ghouls, demons, vampires, Gods and Godesses.
And I loved the main character, Victor Standish, a gypsy, and the son to the Mother of Death. His name is perfectly suited to him since he is always victorious when he stands against any evil. His snarky mouth and puns can get him out of anything. My most favorite line out of the book is, “Puck you.”
Not only is the main character a smart mouth, he’s also hopelessly in love with Alice the ghoul. I loved how he expressed his love for her, and how he could see through the barriers with loving such a being. There were times I thought she might eat him.
I know this is going to sound rather quirky, but this book had a lot of heartfelt wisdom and universal truths that left me in deep thought—sometimes hysterically laughing.
I’m looking forward to reading more of his books."

Oh, Ann Best, yours was the very first review I ever received, and it has a special place in my heart ... and in Hibbs's!
