Whether a restaurant is worthy of our time and money, or if we may get decent service at a hair salon or spa, Without lots of reviews, we may not get the business we all desire, or in the case of my situation, I may not sell bo Read more of this blog post »

“Keep in mind, fellow writers, that readers opinions are subjective. Not everyone is going to love what we write. It doesn't make it bad or "wrong". It just makes it not right for everyone. Don't get too discouraged by reviews. I had someone tell me one of my scenes was a cliche. So what! I like cliches once in a while. Besides, A different person read the exact same scene at the same time, and they told me it was their favorite part. Interesting, isn't it? ”

Linda Burson Hi Nell,

Sure, I’ll download your book.

I’m in the middle of editing two of my books, so it may not be read right away. I marked it to read, however.

Linda

Nell Grey Hi Linda,
The Strictly Business Proposal

Can I recommend this book to you? It's a free download on Amazon at the moment. It's book one of an action romance series set in West Wales. I can promise you that it's a gripping read.

If you like it, I'd be grateful for a review.
Many thanks and have a great weekend,
Nell Grey.
