I’ve received an amazing number of reviews on What Zombies Fear’s Amazon page, 116 as of the time of this writing.
The vast majority of them are 5 star reviews. I’m truly humbled by that. As of today, What Zombies Fear has 68 5-star reviews, and 24 4-stars out of 116 total. We have as many 4 stars as 3, 2, and 1 star reviews combined, and we have more 5 star reviews than 4-1 combined.
That’s staggering to me. I knew I had a good story. I knew it would resonate with people. What amazes me is that people continually see past my lack of “technical expertise” (Which is getting better every day!) in writing, they see past my ability as a writer and enjoy the story. I’m much more of a story teller than a writer. I know the rules of grammar (mostly). I have a spell checker to fix my complete lack of spelling ability. I’ve hired an army of editors who really get all the credit for the technical aspect.
What I love about his job is the art of telling a story. My team allows Laura and I the ability to tell the story without having to focus on the technical. Does that comma belong there? I don’t know, maybe. But it “feels” like the sentence needs a pause there. (By the way, when I typed this originally, there were red squiggglies under “ability” “sentence” and “originally”. Thank you spell checker.)
I am humbled to say that as of March 12, 2013, there are over 30,000 copies of my first book on people’s kindles. I’m humbled to be able to write for a living, and I’m humbled by the number of people who love what I do. It’s the greatest feeling. I’ve never been in a more rewarding position, and I’ve had eleventy-seven million jobs in my life.
Edit: Because I completely fail at this self promotion thing, I totally forgot to include a link should anyone want to download and read What Zombies Fear. Thanks to several of my readers for reminding me!
