A review on my poetry book that left me stunned

I recently sent my poetry book, Everything I Am Not Saying, to a Kindle Book Reviewer to review my book. He warned me that as a poet himself, he was a very tough reviewer. I admit, I balked a little. But I told him to please go ahead and read it, and then give an honest review. Well, he wrote me back today to let me know about his review. His p.s. prepared me for what he wrote: “you wrote poetry to ‘try out’ for prose? Really? I consider myself an A-plus poet, and I salute your talent.”

Did you see? I know, right? 😀

In other news, I just started a new giveaway today, which I’m really excited about – an advance copy of Forever Thirteen! Along with that is a copy of my first book, A Symphony of Cicadas. And on top of that, a $20 gift card to Starbucks so you can get your caffeine on while immersing yourself in the story. 😉

Third, starting next week I will be giving peeks into A Symphony of Cicadas – like whole chapter peeks – followed by sneak peeks into Forever Thirteen (again, full chapters!). Want in on it? Then sign up for my newsletter to get the link. (Hint: if you take part in my giveaway, you’ll already be signed up for the newsletter).

Now go check out that review! Seriously! And then come back and gush with me. <3

  1. cindamackinnon – cindamackinnon.wordpress.com – Cinda Crabbe MacKinnon grew up in Latin America (plus a few years in Europe). Her experiences and love for the people, culture and natural setting of Colombia and Costa Rica resulted in her award winning novel, A Place in the World.....her background enables her to weave in details on tropical nature and geology, as well as Latin American society, into her writing. She lives in northern California with her husband and their golden retriever. Blog posts range from writing, multicultural topics, the expat experience and nature.

    Wow isn’t it exciting to get a great review? And it is so good because he IS a poet that he could write a review like that. 🙂

    1. Crissi Langwell – Crissi Langwell writes romance, women's fiction, young adult novels, and more. Her passion is the story of the underdog, and her stories include ones of determined heroines, family issues, free spirits and more. Beyond writing, Crissi is an avid bookworm, loves to meditate, and has tiny muscles from weight lifting. You have to look closely. She pulls her inspiration from the ocean, and breathes freely among redwoods. Crissi and her husband are both Northern California authors with day jobs. Currently they are kicking their kids out the nest (2 down, 1 to go!), and can't help spoiling their beautiful, bratty Maine Coon cat.

      I can’t even begin to tell you how much that review meant to me – especially because he’s a seasoned poet!
