More Reviews! 10/04/2012 at 21:34
Over the last couple of months, Without A Spark has acquired a couple more reviews on Amazon, which is encouraging, if only slightly.
On the one hand, it’s definitely a little bit rewarding and encouraging to know that people have enjoyed what I’ve written – doubly so, perhaps, for Without A Spark, which was (forgive me for sounding cynical) a somewhat conscious effort to write a genre novel with popular appeal. (As opposed to most of my fiction, which tends to be very niche, pan-genre stuff…) On the other hand, I can see the sales figures for the book, and I’m as convinced as ever that reviews, however positive, really don’t seem to have any tangible effect.
The intangible results are nothing to sneer at, so feel free to read and review Without A Spark, by all means. Every little bit of encouragement is appreciated, honest.
