AlwaysGoRight.com reviews “Turning Left at Albuquerque”
Which reviews matter the most?
- Firstly, it is on a blog that is well-established and has a growing reputation for bringing the geek home to many people. There are reviews and opinion pieces about a wide-range of topics.
- Secondly, it is a review from someone I respect as a writer and who wanted to review my work – this is incredibly powerful. Although I’ve known Karnatos online for a while and we have talked about writing, I would never presume to ask him to review my work. Yet he chose to do so because he enjoys the podcast. Wow!
- Thirdly, it is a validation that we’re doing the right thing. Karnatos is enjoying the story, the narrator, the length of the episodes and the audio quality. If he had had any issues it would be an opportunity to look again and make improvements.
Luckily we seem to be on track:
“… At first I was not exactly sure what she was talking about when she started promoting a chapter from something she called “Turning Left at Albuquerque”, but as usual my curiosity wins and this time I struck gold – I am really enjoying this series…Mary certainly gets the feeling of dread that one experiences when they’ve been let go; having been through it myself, it’s both haunting and entertaining to listen to. And despite it being a very somber setting, her writing keeps things mostly upbeat by allowing humour to show through… You should add this audiobook series to your weekly podcast regiment; I really do feel that you are missing out if you are not tuning in to find out what is in store for poor Jason. Each chapter of this story is entertaining, and the 25 minute episodes go by fast….”
The review is quite in-depth but there are no spoilers, so please take the time to go and read it and then look around the Always Go Right website. It’s my first review and it made me feel very proud, and a little humble.
