Wow! The first two of my books in the Matilda Series have received the Silver Award! How cool is that?
The Silver Award is bestowed on books that expertly deliver complex characters, intricate worlds, and thought-provoking themes. The ease with which the story is told is a reflection of the author’s talent in exercising fluent, powerful, and appropriate language.

Just so you know, the Silver Award is bestowed on books that expertly deliver complex characters, intricate worlds, and thought-provoking themes. The ease with which the story is told is a reflection of the author’s talent in exercising fluent, powerful, and appropriate language.
I thought I had posted about this awesome review about not only The Matilda, but also Twistin’ Matilda! But it must have been all in my mind or in the matrix or something!
It can be found on Lyndsie Clark’s page. There are some other great reviews for books on her site as well as a collection of her own short stories and flash fiction. She has a lot of excellent insight into her journeys in writing and I look forward to reading to her first book!
I received my first Editorial Review for The Matilda and it can be found here: Literary Titan (Do it. I know you want to click it!)
For those who don’t know (and I only learned this recently), an editorial review is not the same animal as a book review (maybe I should’ve gone with a tree analogy… because of the paper…). I can feel your groans from here, by the way.
Anyway, we all know what a regular book review is (and hopefully you’ve left a few in your time surveying the internet landscape). It’s a more personal take on the story from the reader’s opinion and it generally won’t have those quotable bits that you’ll find on book covers.
An editorial review is an unbiased review from a professional that will list the pros and cons with a comparison to the standards of the genre the story is in. And it has those quotable bits for marketing.
This writing and publishing journey has been fun, exhausting, interesting and I always learn something new!
