Re: The Martian by Andy Weir (Film and Book discussion) I 'read' the audiobook... it was incredible. The narrator did such a fantastic job that, although I'll watch the film, I have the feeling that the film won't do it justice... I also hope I'm wrong!

Re: Final Round: Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off I think the final round has some good books in it.

I also think there are some good books that did not make it to the final round, but that's the nature of the competition and anything that gets people reading Indie books is a good thing!
Spoiler for Hiden:
(as long as they read mine too)

Shining a spotlight on books and authors that find it hard to even find a spot on the stage has been one of the most rewarding parts of the process.

Long may something like this continue :)

Re: Final Round: Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off Blurbs are harder than the book itself :)

Say enough to get someone interested, but not too much that they will know the whole story!

I dislike blurbing, and realise I am not too good at it. Hence, I started mine with Sarah Chorn's 4/5* Star review - cheeky, I know.

As for Priest - I've read it and really enjoyed it. Blurbing it... well, yes, I can see the problem.

What do you do when you have faith, but not in humans?
What do you do when there has been a murder, but there are too many suspects?
What do you do when there is danger everywhere, but the army cannot respond?

Priest-busters!!

Sorry, couldn't resist :)

Re: Final Round: Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off The reviews are the opinions of the reviewer... just as Amazon and Goodreads reviews are... mostly.

I think Sarah was clear why she did not like the book and fair in her critique. It is all down to the personal taste of the reviewer.

On the other side, a lot of reviews were around the 7 and 8 mark. Nothing to tell them apart.

As the bloggers get through the ones that appealed to them first, I think we are likely to see scores fall.

Re: Final Round: Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off It is a team.

If you look at the bottom of the reviews and articles you can find out about the reviewer... or just scream in horror at my photo on some of them. Everyone else is much better looking.
