I sent Twisted: Tales to Rot Your Brain Vol. 1 out to reviewers back in January, and at the time I was thinking getting a review from The Midwest Book Review looked kind of promising. Turns out I was right.
Not every book that gets sent to TMBR actually gets a review, so just the fact that they did review mine makes me terribly happy. Here’s what they had to say:
“Life doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, so sometimes we need some stories to match the madness. Twisted Tales to Rot Your Brain Vol. 1 presents unusual stories of flash fiction, meant to bring readers into a dizzying spin of problems and how those losing it may deal with it in all the wrong ways. Twisted Tales to Rot Your Brain is a humorous and intriguing delve into flash fiction, very much recommended.”
Did you catch that? “Very much recommended.” (!) So not only did they review the book, they also liked it!
I’ve updated the book’s listings on Amazon to include the review, but I’m still working on updating the Barnes & Noble listing. I’m also brainstorming all the ways I need to use the review in promotional materials: business cards, Facebook, Twitter, blog (duh), newsletters, sites, book stickers, and on and on. Looks like even more late nights are in order.
