Book Reviews that Teach

Book reviews. I've been getting a few of them lately for my new book, "Conquering Your Goliaths: A Parable of the Five Stones" and a few things have remained consistent.

  • Wanting to read the book--again.
  • Taking notes in the margins.
  • Wanting to gather their own stones to remember what they have learned.

My second book

  • Desiring to use what they have read for their current struggles.

Yes, all writers need a little pat on the back and I'm happy for those I have recently been given. I am also grateful for those reviewers who have struggled with certain aspects of my book and haven't been afraid to share their feelings. These views help me too. For I will be writing and publishing again, you can be sure of that.

I'd like to think that all writers are continually learning, growing and perfecting their craft. Now that winter is over and the spring buds are peeking through the soil, I am thinking again of the growth and learning I have received through the years by writing and by getting reviewed and critiqued.

Sometimes it's hard to hear, but I am grateful for the challenge to improve my next work.

  1. I finished your book the other week (I was a blog winner!) and wanted to let you know that your book was thought provoking. You've woven together a very creative story that interjects faith with real life. It was easy to see how we must apply the "5 stones" to our life as well. Thanks for a great book that has helped to strengthen my faith.
