I received my first ever book-blog review. It’s awesome, and you can read it here.
This all came about due to random internet chance. Someone commented on my previous post about my cover issues, comparing the image in the post with one from an earlier post. Turns out they run a book blog, and that they’d found the description of my book intriguing.
I checked their site, offered them a free review copy of Lost Dogs #1, and they were happy to accept. A few days later the review appeared, and I couldn’t be happier. Sure, it’s four stars instead of five, but that doesn’t really matter compared to the actual review itself.
The critique against the book is fair. The reviewer loves MMA and romance, and would have liked to see more of it. It does say in the blurb that Roy (the main character) is a superstar wrestler (or something to that effect), but in the end the story really isn’t about the fighting. There also isn’t much shown of the back story between Roy and Toini (his love interest), but that’s something that’ll come up again in later parts. It’s fair to have been wanting more of those things.
The review mentions some other things as positives though, and that’s what makes me really happy, as those are things that are important to me and that I put a lot of pride and effort into. Again, check it out, here.
Also, I just released Lost Dogs #2: Undeserved Second Chance a few days ago. I’ll write more about that another day.
