I notice a lot of authors have read their own books, which I did too when it was published and given them a five star rating. I hesitate to do this for the reason that because i wrote something that I personally like, it does not mean everyone else will, plus it seems a bit over the top for me. I do not judge any one else's desire to give them selves a 5***** rating, because in one case I firmly agreed. But I did not rate my book because I did not write it for that reason. I wrote it for Phantom lovers in the hopes that what I felt would be felt by them also. In most cases it was, but a couple disagreed which is their choice.I feel that most people will realize that I did like what I wrote or i would not have gone to the pains and expense of self-publication.
