To be or not to be reviewed?

It’s time for the nerve-racking book review inquiries. Yes, my beta readers are kind enough to post their reviews after reading the published copy, but I must also seek the critiques of book bloggers too. So again, I have to put myself out there to take the criticism because not all the reviews will be kind. Of course, it’s a learning experience and this will help me become a better writer. Hopefully, I will be strong enough to accept the negatives and be humble enough to rejoice in the positives. Until then, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

“Always do what you are afraid to do.”

About Lisa Malabanan

I am a graduate of Rutgers College of Nursing and work as a Professional Registered Nurse in the field of Perinatology. I currently live in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania with my husband and two children. At the age of six, I discovered piano and classical music. A variety of music genres influenced my life through the years, and I’m passing on a love of the arts to my daughter and son. Reading fiction is my escape from the chaos and stress of a demanding yet rewarding profession. For me, writing transcends the diversion of a good book. The experience is like commuting on a New York City subway; diverse people enter and exit the scene, sometimes delays and derailment occur during creativity, and a train of thought is missed or passed over on occasion. In the end, an arrival at my destination is what I hope to accomplish, and I invite readers to take that ride with me. View all posts by Lisa Malabanan
