Good book reviews are good for the writer’s soul

Like anyone who cares about his/her job, an author appreciates getting input from “the boss,” especially when it’s positive and encouraging. My “boss,” so to speak, is you – the readers. When one of my “bosses” gives one of my books a good review, I have to admit, it makes me want to work harder and be better at my job. Kind of like when I would get a positive performance review and a raise when I worked in corporate office environment.

This past month, I’ve been very pleased with the nice comments and reviews that my “bosses” have posted on my Amazon page. I’ll copy and paste a couple of short examples.

Of course, I would love to hear from all of you who have read my books, so feel free to click here and leave a comment so other potential readers will know whether they want to invest their time and a few bucks on an “newcomer” to the world of fiction writing.

I got this review from an unnamed Amazon customer and it made my day. Thank you, Amazon Customer.

A Taut Thriller, Fast Paced, I Couldn’t Stop Reading

Glen Robins has me gasping for breath with this globe-trotting cat-and-mouse chase. His main man Collin is as clever as he is haunted by personal tragedy, managing to elude governments, terrorists and his demons. Congratulations Glen on a fine piece of storytelling. I’m starting the next book now!

Here’s another nice review:

This review is from: Off Kilter (Kindle Edition)
Glen Robins has crafted a great example of the genre. Full of suspense, fast-paced, and finely-crafted, Off Kilter is a non-stop feast of thrills, twists, and turns. Yet, Robins doesn’t cheat on other storytelling areas. His characters are well-rounded and his narrative a pleasure to read. Highly recommended!

These kinds of reviews from new readers are encouraging to authors like myself. Since it’s not always possible to have face-to-face meetings or phone conversations with those who have read my work, it’s very gratifying to get this kind of feedback.

Thank you, unnamed Amazon Customers, for taking the time to share your opinion with other potential readers.
