GoodReads Reviews for “High Ground”

In my last post, I shared the reviews which had come in on the Amazon.com page for my new novel, “High Ground,” and thanked all of you who have purchased and read the book, especially those who took the time to add your review. Such reviews are very valuable to authors and readers alike, since they provide another reader’s take on how they liked the book. It reaches beyond the blurb to give another reader’s take. Since it’s publication, “High Ground” has been maintaining either a “high four (4.7 or so)” or a five point score out of a possible five points.
IMG_0342Funny, one of the weirdest things about letting my book “out into the wild” last November was suddenly realizing my secret hobby, my private passion, was about to become very public. Like it never occurred to me? I think, at least emotionally, it had not! Those first couple of weeks were uncomfortable and strange.  People who have known me for years—decades—didn’t know I was secretly writing a novel. “What the hell have I done?” I thought. What if they hate it, or worse (and more likely) what if nobody reads it?”
So, to say I appreciate each of you who have bought and read the novel, and especially those who have taken the time to give it an Amazon star rating and brief review (“Five Stars! I laughed, I cried, I turned all the pages!”). Many, many thanks. And it’s never to late to add one, if you would be willing.
In addition to Amazon.com, the reader-driven web site GoodReads also allows readers to swap takes on books, good or bad, and gives authors a little more personal way to connect with readers. If you love to read and aren’t on GoodReads yet, would probably enjoy it.
thBeyond just noting who has completed the book, and how they rated it, GoodReads allows readers to declare if they “Want To Read” or “Are reading” the book. “High Ground” is running a 4.2 rating out of five points there, with 10 ratings, three reviews and thirty more readers who either are currently reading or want to read it.
Here they are, again with my deepest thanks to each of you:

Good book!

I sat on the edge of my seat! I like books where people stand for each other-black, white or brown. Our world really needs that right now with our current political leaders.

Delightful book

I enjoyed this book very much. It would make a great movie. Seems still appropriate for today’ world of electromagnetism.
