The wait for early responses

Hi everyone,
David from 417 Magazine
So much about writing involves waiting. The wait for an idea. The wait for an editor’s response. The wait for a contract. For the artist to complete his/her work. For the book to finally be released. And then, the most painful wait of all — waiting for responses from readers.

RHYMES FOR THE TIMES, LITERACY STRATEGIES THROUGH SOCIAL STUDIES, came out last month. Educational books aren’t reviewed much. Mostly the feedback comes from individuals who have read the book and put it to use. I’ve had some lovely comments already and love to hear from those who like it.

Not as much yet from the NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T, which came out this month. A couple of nice comments on Amazon; nothing so far on B&N. Ratings and reviews on the electronic sites don’t constitute the whole sales story by any means, but they are the most accessible. I hope to see more activity in the coming weeks as word gets around on both books.61wO366ugqL__AA160_

In the meantime I have some nice news coming up. More tomorrow.

  1. I’m a slow reader (with a huge backlog of books) in my older age and I often forget to rate books, but I’ll be sure to for Now You See Them on Amazon and Goodreads, my two go-to places for reviews. 🙂 Oh, readers should also check to see if their library has those books and request their purchase if the library doesn’t have them yet.
