Book Reviews – eBooks vs. Paper

I spent Sunday afternoon catching up on leaving book reviews for my recent reads. I leave them four places; Amazon, BN.com, Goodreads, and Shelfari. On Fridays I’ll do a review on my blog for a book I have read that week.

I’ve noticed something strange. I keep forgetting to leave book reviews for the reads on my Nook. When I see the pile of books on my desk I know it is time to leave some reviews. I enjoyed the books and I want the authors to know that. But, with my Nook off, I totally forget what I read this week and forget to do reviews. I have a bad habit of finishing a book and going straight to My Library and starting another book.

Do you do reviews for your favorite reads? How do you remember to do ones for your eBook reads?

The First Six Months

It still seems so hard to believe. Tempting Adam has been published and available for six months today. So many kind friends and strangers have left reviews and comments at The Wild Rose Press, Amazon, and BN.com

Even after six months, sometimes it still seems so surreal. Tempting Adam went from a story in my head, to a file on my hard drive, to a book on a Kindle or Nook or computer screen to be read.

I’ve learned so much since the book was contracted, edited (many times), a cover revealed, seeing it on the Coming Soon page, and seeing it up there on Amazon and BN.com and seeing it being bought and reviewed. Every step has been a lesson learned and another tool in my writer’s toolbox.

Thank you again (many times) to The Wild Rose Press and Tori Spence, my editor, for making my dreams come true. And to the readers of Tempting Adam who took a chance on an unknown author. Thank you many times over.  Jill James

Don’t miss the special event coming up at Back of the Book Reviews. Lots of prizes, including an e-copy of Tempting Adam.
