First book reviews for Jade’s Awakening Author, Isabelle Hardesty

bench

 

During a hot summer day, I was sitting on a bench in Marietta Square with one of my sisters. The day was beautiful and the sky was blue. That was the moment I read my first book review for Jade’s Awakening, my first book! Well, the glaring afternoon sun didn’t allow me to truly read much, but I read enough to realize I had my first book review! I couldn’t believe it. I was so thrilled to finally get my first review. Whew!

Because I know  not every reader will love what I write I value my first review being a good review. It’s nice to know that there are people out there who like what I’ve worked on for a long time.

If you’re a writer, don’t give up. You’ll have your first review and then a second…

I thank Tome Tender Book Review and the countless other book bloggers. They are passionate about helping readers learn about books in the vast world of book possibilities. Self published authors really need bloggers.

Here is a part of the review:

A little mystery, a lot of action, a few shiftings and fairies that are not the little sparkly, gossamer winged creatures we think of! A quick read packed with “story” from an author to put at the top of the Hidden Gem pile!” – Tome Tender Book Blog

Finally, my second review is from an Amazon reader. This person posted anonymously. Thank you for being my first Amazon review. I like Bex too! 🙂

 

The Takeaway…

Focus on the positive and keep going for your dreams!

Thanks for reading!

Isabelle Hardesty
