I know good reviews draw more people to your work so asking friends and family for more good reviews is supposed to make good business sense. However, the review features at places like Amazon are very helpful and I don’t want those reviews skewed by recommendations from anyone but honest users.  That is why, for better or worse, I don’t solicit friends or family or anyone I know for reviews of the stories I self publish.

Undoubtedly that is why I don’t have many reviews, but on the flip side, they are honest reviews from people whom I have never met. So these six reviews from my story, Mother, are great to see.

 sarah: ***** MotherMother available at Smashwords.com

Very different take on artificial intelligence. Truly believable. Could be a real encyclopedia of the future :). Thanks for the imagery.

Bill: **** Mother

An exceptionally original story conceptualization well reasoned out. The story line has a few time gaps and the human interaction dialogue is not quite up to the narrative dialog, but it’s a solid four stars. Looking forward to the complete book

Ryan: **** Really great sci fi read

I picked this up for free, and honestly, I would have paid for it happily!

TOB9595: *****GREAT SCI FI story

This is a terrific read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Plot and characters are well developed. There are no spoilers in my reviews

Allison: **** the first chapter of what could prove to be a good read

This first chapter of the story sets up a very interesting scenario whereby a probe sent from Earth to look for life among the stars evolves/mutates into a sentient being as it attempts to accomplish its directive. This chapter encompasses a fair amount of time in the life of the probe and its slow transformation. It seemed the parts of the chapter dealing with the human elements of the story weren’t crafted with the same care. In any case, I’m going to splurge for the $1.99 for the rest of the story. Something different, worth the time to read.

Darkaura: **** Very intriguing, April 29, 2013

It has a slow start, but gets real good. I am interested in reading the rest of the series. Future space stories are so intriguing.

 

I’m also grateful to anyone who might have read my stories and didn’t like them but also didn’t feel the need to low-rate them too.  However if anyone who reads my stories on Amazon or the retailers like Barnes and Noble does have feedback about what can be improved in any of the stories published there, I would welcome the input.  Just e-mail me at  writtenwells@gmail.com.

And thank you again to those who liked my stories enough to give me the great reviews. writing written
