Hey, ladies and gents! Just wanted to leave a link to a recent review for my book, Is'nana the Were-Spider, along with the link to the Amazon and digital copy. The book has been getting a lot of stellar reviews and I'm currently in the middle of producing Vol 2! And conventions have been wonderful drawing in new readers.

As the story of Anansi, well known to only through West Africa but also throughout the Caribbean, as he is the spirit of all knowledge and stories. I remember my grandfather telling me the story when I was 7 when I lived in Trinidad. Growing up reading comic books, I read about Thor and his brother Loki, and their father, Odin, and always thought why were stories about people who looked like me never like this. Enter writer Greg Anderson-Elysee, who from what I just read, probably thought, and wished the same exact thing....

.... Overall, a strong introduction to a character and a world that I want to know more about and one which is more relatable than Peter Parker’s. The story by Greg Anderson-Elysee, by at first glance may seem like one we have heard before, but once the reader digs in, is an even denser and intricate story and one whose origins have deeper roots than one would imagine. The art by Walter Ostlie, Lee Milewski, Walt Msonza Barna, and Joshua Cozine, is beautiful and reminds me of the work Frank Miller did on Ronin. Altogether, a strong first book by this team, and a story that I can’t wait to see what happens next.

That's a fine review. Does it look like it's helped pull in more readers?

Depends on where I post the reviews. Some reviews do help a lot. But the trick is to consistently spread and post it at various places where people ho may have missed it may be interested. It also does better when its people other than the creator pushing the book.

I hear you. If you're getting reviews like that, somebody's going to read them and take an interest, I'd hope.
