So it's been a week and a half since Jesse's Brother has been released. I've done interviews, guest blogs, and chats so far. These were all fun things to do in the name of promotion. What I was scared of were the reviews! Right before the release date, I sent out Jesse's Brother to be reviewed by Pheobe Jordan. I checked her review blog every day to see if the review had been posted. It was finally with a rating of 4 out of 5 open books. It made my whole day... okay, week.

Pheobe said, "I very much look forward to reading any of Wendy's future novels because like I said she has me hooked."

Anyway, I'm so proud even though I've prepared myself for a not-so-good reviews. Hopefully I won't get any huh? One thing I'm wondering about is how many people buy books based on reviews. Does a review influence your book buying choice?

If you have a few minutes, take a peek last night's project! Talk to you soon... Wendy Ely

I absolutely love your book trailer. It is very good and tells us a bit of the novel without giving to much away as well as peaks our interest in the process. Loved reading Jesse's Brother and like you quoted from my review I am hooked and want more of your novels.

Thanks, Phoebe. I recieved Confessions already but am going to wait until right before the release date :) You're first on my list though. I plan on making the trailer for Confessions tonight.

You inspired me, mate!

Thanks, Mark! It wasn't all that hard to do!

Great trailer, Wendy! Congrats on the release and the review!

Sometimes I'll buy a book based off of reviews, but sometimes a negative review can make me buy a book too. Just kind of depends on what the reviewer says. *shrugs* I'm an odd bird though, so doubt I'm the norm.

Congrats again! *huggles*
