Reviews are a vital factor in any success I will achieve as an author. Reviews are not only feedback from the general public, but they can also sway whether someone else wants to take a gamble on something they have never heard of before.
I started writing in early 2014 with no prior training, so naturally I’m always interested in any kind of feedback to see where I may be going wrong and what I can tweak. Those tweaks could be the difference between where I am now and selling over a million books and more importantly, positively influencing over a million people’s lives
The Price of Fame
…is a psychological drama which explores how people try and cope with fame and money at such a young age. There were so many interesting factors that I wanted to explore here, and I think I covered the majority of them.
This was my first book as well, so I was pleased how it came out.
The Butterfly Killings
…is a psychological horror book set in a ‘dear diary’ format. It follows the life of someone who killed a child when they were young, then once they left prison were put in the witness protection program and given a whole new life. This explores the documentation of a person losing their sanity trying to remember a false background story and living a lie
…is my first attempt at a comedy. I’ve always loved humour, so this was a slightly intimidating topic for me to write about. The comedy scene is unforgiving, and all it takes is a couple of terribly written jokes to make people completely lose interest.
This book follows the life of someone who wants to be a comedian but is too scared to make the jump. He is naturally funny, but needs to overcome his demons before he can think about acting on it.
Talk To Me
…is a romcom. It’s about a guy who is painfully shy around girls and decides that he is going to force himself to talk to a different girl every day for a month and see what happens. Most of the time it goes horrendously wrong, but the things that happen as a result of that open up new doors for him.
This book explores the shyness of a man who needs to put himself out of his comfort zone. There are many messages in this book that I don’t want to spoil for you before you read it…
…is not what you think it is. It follows the life of a young naive girl who gets coerced to join the adult entertainment industry. Eventually she realises that adult performers are people just like everyone else and begins to flourish in her new unexpected role in life.
This book obviously has sex scenes in it, but gives you a different insight into the industry. I would classify this book as a thriller that is entertaining yet light hearted at the same time.
…is another psychological thriller that enters a world that I am very familiar with; travelling. A guy decides to go on a trip of a lifetime and after experiencing some terrible luck, ends up stuck in a foreign country.
This book specifically has got some incredible reviews already, and I can only see the number rising once I reach more people.
So thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read my books, and thank you to those of you who have also left an honest review. I really appreciate any kind of feedback on my books and all it takes is one positive comment for a book (or in my case books) to snowball
