It's tough to get folks to take the chance with their time and review a completely unknown author's work. I totally understand. That's time you'll never get back and I'd hate to fill it up with a crappy novel.
Of course, my novel is totally awesome-sauce. ;)
So to all of those reviewers, THANK YOU!! Your words really give writers something to hold on to (especially when you guys like the novel.). Many blessings to you guys!
