Looking for a Good Book

Book Reviews is something I think every author should want.  Good or Bad.

I ran across a story where a gentleman was a political journalist associated with a magazine or something, and he decided to write a book about the Lincoln assassination, nothing to do with his day job what so ever.  The day he published on Amazon the people who where familiar with his name from his journalistic political arena started a trashing campaign on his book.  Horrible reviews written the say day everybody bought the book.  First mistake was none of the trashers actually read the book.  It got such attention from so many people trashing it that others bought it to see for themselves and then the true readers started reviewing the book and trashing the trashers. 
Amazon took notice to so much activity to such a newbie writer, first time published author, had somebody actually read the book and ended up offering the guy a publishing deal to turn the e-book into a real paper book.  So even huge amounts of negative publicity can be good.

Efinds at reviews books.
So whether your a writer looking to get your book reviewed or a reader just looking for a good book, please check out this site.  She also lists several other places that also does reviews of books,  and there is the Indie Hall of Fame that if you qualify for you can get your book listed in there.

In relation to two of my earlier posts, one Neo my retarded cat and Two About the Love you have for your children, we found out that Garth is very allergic to cats.  My daughter is moving out at the end of the month and taking her cat Trinity, so we had to find a new home for Neo.  We have found a wonderful home for him where I am sure he will be very happy, but it still is going to break my heart to be with out my cat.  It astounds me how attached we can get to our pets, and only because it is for my sons continued and better health would I even consider giving Neo up.  I have to admit I am a bit heart broken and he hasn't even left yet.  He truly is the best Cat I have ever had in my entire life, in spite of his being retarded and acting like a dog more than a cat.
