Arranged Book Review #1
Rewind back a couple of months, back to my July 21 post on how book reviews can form an important marketing tool for your books. If you remember, I said arranging a few reviews is definitely a task worth doing. I still stand by that. Well, I would, wouldn’t I, since the first arranged review for Chasing Pavements was posted today on A Novel Review, and I couldn’t be happier with it? I want to thank Charlotte the reviewer at this great book review blog for agreeing to read and review my book, and am delighted that she enjoyed it and wrote a lovely review for it.
Whether this leads to a bucket-load of sales or not, it has definitely given me a sense of satisfaction. Authors write for their readers, and if their stories are received well, then it goes a long way in boosting our morale, inspires us further. What really moved me were the lovely words Charlotte wrote in her e-mail a few days earlier, when she informed me the review would be posted today. It was truly amazing to read the e-mail, thank you Charlotte! Its messages like these that make me glad I published Chasing Pavements.

"This is not your typical chic lit book. There is no sloppy romance and no mushy words. This is truly a one of a kind book... Little by little the story was told to me and it was told perfectly... I cannot believe this is Neha’s first book. It is perfect. This is definitely a must read."
