A couple months ago I was contacted by a young woman named Shwetha HS from India asking for a review copy of my science fiction thriller, The God Thought. She writes a blog called We Read That Too and explained that a lot of Western fiction can become popular among those fluent in English in her country.
Being new to the review game, I was a little hesitant to send a copy half way across the world. I’d already been accosted by several people who claim to write reviews but really just sign up for a “book tour” to get free books. But I took the chance, and I’m glad I did, because not only did Shwetha post a flattering review with five stars in Goodreads, she also gave me one of the most interesting analogies/tag lines I’ve read about my novel in a long time: “Men in Black meet Harry Potter.”
I can't emphasize enough how accurate that depiction is, excluding my story's mature content. Certainly adult fans of Potter or MIB would find a lot to enjoy in my novel. (The God Thought isn't for kids.)
So, thank you, Shwetha! You can bet I’ll get some mileage out of that one. And I’m so glad you enjoyed the book!
You can read Shwetha’s full review and follow her at We Read That Too.
