Eureka! Five stars from an Amazon Top 500 reviewer

DSCF0122Two blogs in a day – in fact, in less than two hours! What is the world coming to?

But I simply have to share my joy that Ionia Martin, one of Amazon’s Top 500 reviewers, has awarded five stars to The Girl with the Haunting Smile. She speaks of “emotionally developed characters that you can’t help but like”. She adds: “I love the dialogue in this book and can’t see how it could possibly be better.”

Wow! I said in my last post that it is an endless drag to track down Amazon top reviewers. Suddenly, that drag seems well worth the trouble.


About Richard Louden

Maybe it was because languages were my thing but I loved writing at school and I've loved it ever since. Obviously, I hope others will enjoy reading what I write but, now that I am turning my hand to novels, what matters most to me is to write what, as a reader, I would like to read. As a journalist with UK papers, I've written widely on education, business, sport and law. In the creative writing field, I've written the scripts of two TV dramas (BBC and ITV), contributed sketches to TV and radio comedy shows and had short stories published in national anthologies. That doesn’t make me a novelist but I hope it gives me a push in the right direction.
