Many thanks to the dozens of people who reviewed the four books, who helped propel them into the Best Seller Lists. All constructive criticism, however minor, is appreciated, and the books are far stronger owing to these incremental (and occasionally dramatic) alterations.
Thanks also to Ted for maintaining the site, and the professional readers for their contributions. YouWriteOn is a wonderful resource, and I am a far stronger writer because of the reviews I have received and those I have done. Taking that final step and getting published is turning out to be a far more difficult hurdle than I envisaged (15 years and counting!), but maybe these endorsements will help achieve that goal.
Congratulations also to the other winners. I hope you are just as overjoyed.
YouWriteOn is a website for aspiring writers. Writers exchange reviews and score the opening 7,000 words of their books. The highest scoring books each month enter the Best Seller's Chart, and become eligible for the annual awards. Since it's inception in 2006, over 230,000 reviews have been exchanged on the site.
