Naked Truths About Getting Book Reviews.

I had never heard of this book but I thought it was interesting. It talked about something on every author’s mind. Reviews. I can remember when you simply picked up a book. Read the excerpt and decided if you wanted to buy or read it or not. That doesn’t seems to be the case anymore or perhaps it has never been. Nowadays it seems to be all about reviews.

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I think too big of a deal is made of big reviews. I have found many of the best books have no reviews at all. The highly reviewed and raved over ones are usually quiet boring. Boring as watching paint dry. A review actually tells me nothing but what ‘you‘ thought of the book. I prefer to read it myself and decided for myself not let someone else decision influence my reading habits. I found the Unholy pursuit series because I look for new work that’s truly interesting. Not what everyone else say is interesting. From my observation I found most people wouldn’t know a truly exciting book if it bit them in the butt.

    • Dominic, like it or not reviews does help sales. People want to know what others have to say before they invest their time and enegry into reading a book. Personally, I am much like you. Reviews do not matters to me if I find something interesting.

    The naked truth is big publishing companies employees write those reviews. Those thousands of reviews aren’t anymore truth than a pathological liar. But in marketing, every marketers knows that’s what attracts the public. It’s a business. It’s all about making money not about honesty.
