‘Long and Short Australian Stories’ : Shelleyrae’s review.

24 Feb

When you’re a writer, reviews of your own work engender a plethora of emotions. There’s the waiting and wondering, particularly for early reviews. Then, there’s the inevitable reflection on their meaning and potential outcome, and the hope of words that reflect one of humanity’s deepest desires, approval.

In other words, reviews matter.

Some say that reviews are mostly for the benefit of potential readers, but the reality is that well-founded observation, positive or negative, can help the writer, too.  Seeing through the  eyes of another can alert an author to points perhaps previously unrecognised.

So, I say a big ‘Thanks you’ to Shelleyrae at Book’d out for her thoughtful review.
