Goodreads Reviews: Do They Matter? Of Course They Do!

Goodreads Reviews Do Matter!

goodreads reviewsDid you know that you Goodreads reviews appear on much more than just Goodreads? Goodreads also exports reviews to Google Books, Powells.com, USAToday.com, as well as others. While book reviews on any site help, Goodreads reviews seem to go a bit above and beyond others!

It is for that reason that I appreciate so many folks taking the time to review Serpents Underfoot on Goodreads! So, thank you, Jeffery Gordon Pearce, for your 5 STAR review. And, thank you, John Karlson, for your 4 STAR review.

Chasing reviews is a waste of valuable time that could be better spent otherwise promoting your work. However, there is no doubt that good reviews will help spark reader and buyer interest in your work. So, by all means, keep tabs on those reviews. Just, don’t let chasing those reviews become your primary goal. After all, you should have writing projects to work on as well!

Serpents Underfoot: A New Novel by DC Gilbert

Serpents Underfoot by DC Gilbert: The Count Down

DC Gilbert - Serpents UnderfootHello!  I am DC Gilbert. I have been editing my book, Serpents Underfoot, for weeks. I think my eyes are ready to go on strike. Finally, late last night I uploaded the interior PDF and the cover PDF at CreateSpace! I have gone through their review process and now await their review process to complete.  It is exciting!

I am sure that when I get a copy in my hands, I will find some typo I missed. It will jump off the page and hit me squarely between the eyes. But maybe not … I guess if that happens, I will just fix it and move on … a revised edition. After all, Serpents Underfoot is my first novel! I am sure there will be some newbie mistakes.

Meet JD Cordell and His Family

JD Cordell’s family paid in blood to make this country what it is … a land of the Free and the home of the Brave! JD’s family fought in every conflict that the United States has been involved in going back as far as the French and Indian War. This includes JD’s father, Curtis Cordell, who fought in Vietnam,  Curtis married the beautiful South Vietnamese woman who nursed him back to health in a Montagnard village while his was MIA deep in the jungles of Vietnam.

A U.S. Navy SEAL

JD grew up believing that honor, loyalty, devotion to duty, and compassion are part of being a man. This was reinforced with his years of training in Isshin-ryu Karate and Vovinam, a Vietnamese martial art, from his years of martial arts training. All this molded JD into the man he is and the accomplished Navy SEAL he has become.

While on a mission in Afghanistan, JD’s SEAL team unexpectedly discover a deadly terrorist plot being orchestrated by a radical mastermind living in Iran, which if successful, could spell disaster for the United States. Receiving a message from an old school friend who now works for the CIA, JD finds himself suddenly catapulted into the center of this sinister plot. When terrorists kill his friend, JD jumps feet first right into the action. In addition to working to avenge his friend’s death, JD uncovers a trail of treachery and betrayal that reaches from the mountains of Iran to the highest levels of the U.S. Government. What can JD do prevent a major terrorist strike which has the potential to destroy the entire American way of life? Read the book to find out … but, JD’s honor will not allow him to simply walk away.

 

I hope you will give my book a read. It will be available very soon now. And, if you like it … please give me a good review on Amazon.com.

Thank you, DC Gilbert
