Great Minds Think Aloud Literary Community awards 5 ravens to Rys Rising

Rys Rising: Book I received a positive review at Great Minds Think Aloud Literary Community.
Reviewer Maegan Morin of the Great Minds Think Aloud Literary Community unveiled her review of Rys Rising: Book I on Friday.

Her opening remarks
"Upon first starting this novel I was a little skeptical. I have literally read hundreds of fantasy novels but never any by an indie author and I was worried that I would be dissappointed. Luckily my worried thoughts were in vain."

After giving her opinions on my writing and characters, Morin added:

"I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy."
So would I! Thank you for the great review! Contrary to popular belief, writers need more than rejection and verbal abuse to thrive. We need readers who like our work to mention it to others.

Morin's remarks also reminded me about readers who are honestly leery of giving a self published title a try. I'm glad she overcame her worries and ended up having a great read. To disregard indie fiction is like imposing on yourself a rule that you will never eat a home cooked meal and only eat at restaurants.

Morin's complete review can be read at the GMTA Community.
