Awesome First Book Review for Soul Rescue
Before I launch my books, I usually share a chapter or two with some of my author friends. It helps to get honest feedback, especially with seasoned authors. In the past, I have sent my manuscript to some readers and writing friends. I appreciate hearing other people's responses to my book content.
Yesterday, I sent chapter one of my book, Soul Rescue: How to Break Free from Narcissistic Abuse & Heal Trauma, to my friend Beth. This morning, she sent me her awesome book review of chapter one. While it is only a single chapter, I'm humbled and honored for such positive remarks. Here's what Beth shared: "That is awesome, Dana! Hurray! 💃 Thank you so much for letting me get this sneak peak. That was so generous of you. Can’t wait, until it is published so I can read the rest! I was blown away by the immense research you did in just this first chapter—-wow! I truly felt I was reading something written by a therapist or psychiatrist! Your education and immense research show!
Dana, I’m so sorry for your pain…all you went through. It made me sad for “little Dana.” I believe that God is using all your pain and mine in such powerful ways, that we can’t even fathom—but one day God will show us and how it has been for Jesus’ glory!" For those interested in what Soul Rescue is about, here is the book description:
