Book was mentioned on a blog I frequent.
(Actually, the rejection letter was mentioned.)
Came over to Smashwords and put the book in my cart.
Became suspicious of all the glowing 5-star reviews.
Checked out author's blog and got sucked in to a story there.
Came back to Smashwords and checked out the cart.
Stayed up 'til three AM reading the book.
Came back to Smashwords to write a 5-star review of my own.
You should buy the book and after reading you'll be back to write your own 5-star review.
Over the top plot. Flawed characters. Funny one-liners.
Only 2.99 for a 122k words. What's not to like?
Okay, there were (quite a lot of) elements that required a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief and there may have been too much going on in too little time.
But I read it in one sitting.
5 stars because it's the author's first published book.
