Critical Acclaim for Loki of Midgard

And then Sare died of happiness.

So in my attempt to be a professional about this book-publishing business, however self-published I am, I sought out professional reviews, namely from Kirkus Reviews and from IndieReader, and lo… yesterday afternoon I got my reviews.

So, in case you didn’t know, publishing houses (and us self-published types) go to professional review houses and pay them, sometimes handsomely, and sometimes for a bad review. You take what you get, and if it’s terrible, well, you don’t have to use it. But if you choose to use it in any way, then you authorize the reviewing house to use it in all of their media as well.

I’m happy to report that both reviews contained no negativity, there was plenty of good stuff in the Kirkus Review, and IndieReader’s review was positively glowing – they give starred reviews as standard and Loki of Midgard merited 4.8 out of 5 stars.

I need to do a couple of administrative things here before I can allow the review houses to publish the reviews, and therefore I cannot yet publish the reviews anywhere, including this blog… but I’m just so happy I had to share!

And the lovely little sticker-stamp that is on this blogpost? That is the stamp I am now allowed to put on the cover of Loki of Midgard. And I will, in just a couple of days.
