21 (5-Star) Book Reviews


No author can write a novel and earn a 5-Star book review every time.

He has to earn that rating by 1. Having a strong opening. 2. A powerful description of the main characters. 3. Showing more than telling. 4. Have characters the reader can root for or hate. 5. Bringing life to the characters in his novels. 6. Have tension and conflict. 7. Having a message in the novel. 8. Take the reader on a compelling        journey. 9. Make a particular book worth reading twice. 10. Have a  satisfying ending. If a reader feels compelled to recommend the book to others, the author has done his job well.

What does a 5-Star rating mean?

5 Stars — Great! You would definitely buy this book. You would definitely        recommend it to your friend’s. You really loved the character’s, the plot, and would consider looking for this author’s backlist of other books. The writing and editing were superb.

I’m grateful to have 21 of my 35 novels receive a 5-Star rating from Reader’s Favorite.
