I publish all reviews to my website first and then publish an abridged version to Goodreads, B&N, and Amazon, all indie authors and press also to www.theindieview.com/.
Less than 1 star. It was really bad.
One Star. I could barely read it. I honestly do not understand why anyone would think it was okay to publish this and have the gall to ask for money.It was free, you should now pay me for the trauma suffered.
Two Stars. It was okay, but it did not push any buttons and I cannot recommend it.
Three Stars. I liked your book and I read it all from cover to cover. I have probably had a face to face conversation with someone about your book. I will recommend that your book should be purchased and read by fans of the genre, however there were flaws. I would be happy to read another book you have written.
Four Stars. Fantastic, I loved it. I am going to follow this author from now on.
Five Stars. I am completely captivated, I am in love with this book. It made my soul soar. This is a book I could read over and over again every week for the rest of my life. I am going to stalk this author from now on. This author is going to open their front door and find me sitting on the step. This author is going to go down to the kitchen and open the fridge door to get a sip of juice during the night and I am going to be sitting in the fridge. This author is going to take a bath and I am going to be passing the soap, no need for them to bend over, I will do the bending. This author is going to need to go to the bathroom urgently and they are going to find me passing them the toilet paper; and I will be smiling the whole time, a privilege, cause I never smile.
