Review: “The best book ever made.”

Hyperbole. I use it often for emphasis, especially when overwhelmed with joy or another passionate emotion, so I deeply appreciate this glowing 5-star review by reader K. A. Schaefer for the 5th book in the Rowan of the Wood fantasy series: SPIRIT OF THE OTHERWORLD.

Awesome! The best book ever made. The ending is the best, and the green man- amazing! I can’t think of a better book to read! ~ by K. A. Schaefer (Dallas, TX)

This review made my morning. It made my entire week!

K. A. Schaefer’s review is super special because of a few reasons:

  1. It wasn’t prompted. I haven’t asked for reviews, as I have done in the past because sometimes people just don’t think to leave one. This was a complete surprise today.
  2. Although I might know K. A. Schaefer personally, since they live in Dallas where my family lives and where we’ve done many events, I don’t recognize the name right off the bat. An unprompted review from a reader inspired to post solely on their joyful experience from reading our book is huge for this author. Certainly not unprecedented, but like many independent authors with limited distribution and marketing budgets, it is rare. This review is all the more beautiful because of it.
  3. The review specifically compliments the ending of the book, and for those who have read my stories or those I write under O. M. Grey, you know that endings are something with which I struggle.

This review renews hope in my heart.

It’s truly amazing what a few nice, genuine sentences can do for the artist’s soul. Please keep this in mind, dear readers, after you’ve read our books. A few heartfelt sentences keeps the creative fires burning and costs you nothing more than a few minutes of your time.

Thank you, K. A. Schaefer, for sharing your joy with me and the world.

May you find peace.
