Ratings and Reviews...



HAPPY SUNDAY!! With my two releases, The Willow and A Deadly Whisper, out for nearly a month now, ratings have been coming in. Every time I open and read a review, I’m looking with only one eye open. I’ve been waiting for that dreaded one or two star from the readers....

Luckily, it hasn’t come! PHEW!!!

Truthfully, I expect my books to fall into the three star rating. I’m a new author, with lots to learn and wouldn’t dare put my work in the same rating as some of my favourites, MacAlister, Frost or Arthur. Surprisingly, I’ve been shocked to see that the readers feel different than I do and have rated my stories with a four or even a five star. I’m left looking at it in shock and completely thrilled. Especially, when I see the authors they’ve also given that rating too.

So, today, I just wanted to send a big thank you out to everyone who has supported me thus far. I appreciate that you can get past maybe little flaws here and there, and just love the story. Big hugs and warm wishes to you all!!!

Now...it's waiting to hear from the review sites *bites nails*

Congrats on the great reviews, Stacey. New authors can be five star authors and you've proved it.

So for those readers that have hesitated on taking a chance on a new author, take note. There's buried treasure out there to be found.
