THE POMEGRANATE made Heidi Slowinski’s Top Ten Reads of 2021. I am thrilled beyond words. Truly.
Heidi has a significant following and she loved the book. Her wonderful review, titled Historical fiction at its best appears on both Amazon and Goodreads.
How do you argue with something like that? Not me!
Truth is, this is important to a writer. Not only is it validation from an established reviewer (not to mention someone whose opinion I respect,) it also means her followers will be exposed to The Pomegranate as a book worth reading. Her opinion does count to a lot of readers.
I’ve written about this before, but there isn’t an author on the planet who doesn’t worry about putting a book out there. What if the other kids don’t like my kid? You write a book, your friends think it’s great, and a reviewer calls it amateurish and badly written. It happens. You doubt yourself, your ability to construct a sentence, your craft. But then you get a review like Heidi’s, and suddenly you have hope.
Thank you, Heidi Slowinski!
