I met suspense novelist Karen Dodd via Indies Unlimited (IU).
For those of you not “in the know,” IU is a helpful website for authors and aspiring self-publishers. They have posts on everything over there!
Yep, I’m a big supporter of this site, and I have to give thanks to indie author Melissa Bowersock for suggesting I follow that blog. You might remember Melissa as the woman whom I interviewed for a bunch of self-publishing info in early 2013. (Thanks again, Melissa!)
Okay, I’m getting sidetracked.
This post isn’t about Melissa Bowersock, even though she has self-published three more books since our interview! (Yep. Three.)
This post is about Karen Dodd. It’s also about her suspense novel, Deadly Switch, and my book review of said novel.
I connected with Karen Dodd on both Facebook and on IU. When I realized that she is a suspense novelist who wrote a mystery, I got giddy, as I usually do when I come across a mystery. 😉
Karen Dodd’s novel, Deadly Switch, was a good read. Because I received a digital version (my preference), I read it on my Kobo. It was the second book I read on this device, too. (I usually read print books, but this is changing as I adapt to the digital age, which is a whole different discussion – one already had by this freelancer!)
Because I enjoyed Karen’s story, it proves to me that my reading experiences have nothing to do with how I read a book, the quality of the writing, or my overall experience. (Some people were not thrilled with my less-than-stellar review of the first book that I read on my Kobo.)
