Flashes of War Turns Two!

Flashes of War is two years old, today. To my great surprise, I’m happy to report that invitations to read and present at colleges and organizations continue to come my way. It’s been a learning experience and wild ride, including lows and highs. None of it would be possible if it weren’t for you–darn near every single one of the 8,000 people out there in cyberspace reading this blog every week. Thank you.

To help celebrate this book’s birthday, I’d like to publicly post this call for reviews or ratings on Goodreads and Amazon. It’s a small favor that takes a few clicks to complete (or a few more minutes of critical thinking, if you prefer) and will add up to more than you can imagine. These reviews, whether you support book purchases through Amazon or not, add up for authors: publishers, agents, potential employees, and reading series curators sometimes scour these reviews. It’s a very boots-on-the-ground way to get a sense for what the general population thinks of a particular author’s work and readability. And above all else, your opinion counts! Good, bad, satisfied, or disappointed–I want to know how this book did or did not work for you.

Can you review or rate it for me? Here’s how:

  • Log in to your Amazon account and search for Flashes of War (LINK). Once there, you’ll see the small blue number just below the title. Right now it says “64 customer reviews.” Click on that, and you’ll see a white button about 2/3 of the way down the page that says “Write a Review.” Click, rate the book with some stars, and add a line or two of detail (if you prefer). Submit the review (one more button to click) and you’re done!
  • Log in to your Goodreads (or create) account and search for Flashes of War (LINK). When you’re logged in and have clicked on the book page, you’ll see the cover on the left, the purchase options in beige bubbles just below that to the right, and then My Review underneath that. Here, you can click a few stars and be done, and/or also click “Write a Review” and add whatever you see fit.

Thank you so much for your time and help. It really does make a difference!
