Thanks to Jackie At My Tower of Books for her review of THE BETWEEN.
It is always a risk, sending your work out to the world for review. When I was searching for book bloggers to pitch, I sought out thoughtful readers who were critical and honest. I am not so much a glutton for punishment as someone who values straightforward commentary. If all I ever wanted was approval, I would never submit anything further than my dear husband who is my unapologetic fan.
Which is lovely, but doesn't push me to work harder and make each story the best it can be. That's the job of a crit group, beta readers, and reviewers and I am grateful for them, every step of the way toward publication.
