There is undoubtedly a point where every author stops reading the reviews of his or her works. The reviews become too numerous or, in some cases, too painful to read.
I am not one of those authors. I take the time to read every one. I love getting feedback from those who enjoy my books and constructive criticism from those who can help me improve as a writer. Both are important.
Rachel of The Reading Cafe offers two of the better reviews of late with a double take on The Mine and The Show, the Nos. 1 and 3 books of the Northwest Passage series. Each novel will be featured on an ebook site next week and offered at a reduced price, with The Mine going on sale Sunday and The Show Monday and Tuesday.
Work continues on The Fire, book four of the series. I have finished a complete rough draft and will spend most of the summer revising it. I expect to have the novel out by the third week of September.
