Forgive Me, Alex – Making the Rounds with Bloggers/Reviewers

My novel, Forgive Me, Alex, is a psychological suspense thriller. When I wrote it, I hoped it would touch readers at some level, perhaps make them think a little about questions of morality, justice, redemption — maybe even make them squirm a bit.

When I signed up for a blog tour through the good folks at Novel Publicity, I really had no idea what to expect. Would the responses of these reviewers be all I hoped for? Umm… what if they didn’t like it? Well, let’s face it: no way an author can please everyone. So what the heck! Might as well roll the dice.

I must say, the results so far have been pleasing. I hope you’ll stop by the Novel Publicity website, which has links to all the blogs that have posted about Forgive Me, Alex, during this month-long tour. Please leave comments where you’re moved to do so, showing your support and appreciation for the hard work of these bloggers, whose dedication springs from a love of reading.

“Forgive Me, Alex” Gets a Great Review, and Is a Semi-Finalist at Kindle Book Review’s Best Indie Books of 2012

Yeah, I had a pretty good day yesterday. First, I started a month-long book tour for Forgive Me, Alex, through Novel Publicity. Stop by and check it out: 3 $50 Prizes are up for grabs.

The first review out of that tour was done by Anne Chaconas. She had many nice things to say, and I hope you’ll drop by and post your own comment.

Excerpt: “Diamond does in Forgive Me, Alex what I wish more contemporary authors would do: He brings me right into the story, forcing me to identify with the characters. I didn’t have a choice–I would feel Tony Hooper’s wrath and need for revenge, I would wallow in Mitchell Norton’s desperate inability to ward off his demons. I would cheer for Diana Gregorio’s unbelievable ballsiness in the face of seemingly unbeatable odds. I would weep, shedding actual tears, for Alex Hooper’s childhood.”

Then, just as I was basking in that good news, I received notification from Kindle Book Reviews that Forgive Me, Alex is a semi-finalist in their Best Indie Books of 2012 – Mystery/Thriller Category.

So yeah, I had a pretty good day. ***Me smiling*** I wonder how today will go?

This is the second in a 2-part interview series by podcaster and aspiring author Timothy C. Ward, who was kind enough to sit down and talk to us about our business, about our authors and books, about why we do what we do.
