It was with great pleasure that I read a review of Flight Into Secrecy written by good friend Bert Carson and left on Amazon.com the other day. I have reproduced part of the review below.
It is an excellent review that I'm suitably chuffed with because part of my aim as a writer is to entertain. I write because I love writing but if I didn't entertain part of the point of writing would be lost. Having one's name mentioned in the same breath as Crais and so on is amazing.
The only thing I have to question is why a review posted on amazon.com appears on amazon.co.uk but only as an addendum and without the star rating? C'mon Amazon get sorted.
Even so it was a very pleasant surprise and I'm hoping readers will look at the whole of Bert Carson's review and consider the books as a source of entertainment.
In his turn Bert Carson is a fine writer with a number of books to his name some of which I have read and thoroughly enjoyed. Check them out on his website/blog at,
I particularly enjoyed reading Southern Investigations.
Reviews I know are important if an author is to make progress and so if you too have read any of my works I would appreciate your thoughts on Amazon, Smashwords or completelynovel.com just search under my name David L Atkinson.
