Review request: Gift of Light / Anathema ebook

3 years ago | Chrysalis (Member)

Hello there!

I'm posting another of these because I haven't heard back from the last volunteer in about 2 months now, so let's try this again! I'm looking for a couple reviewers for Gift of Light, my new and still ongoing serial. About 30K words have been posted so far, the whole thing is just a bit over 80K words and I'd be happy to provide the whole ebook (mobi or epub format).

If the reviewer likes it, I'd super duper appreciate a cross post of the review to Amazon since I've only gotten one on there so far, many of the more reputable and worthwhile marketing service providers require a minimum of 5 or 10. :( unfortunately Amazon has changed their requirements for posting reviews, so now they're even harder to get than they used to be...

For the reason mentioned above I'm also looking for Amazon reviews for the Anathema ebook (now republished with a new cover as Superluminary). Superluminary has 3 Amazon reviews. Having 5 would help me out so much. Those of you who read the serial and posted a review on Transition, the previous ebook version - would you maybe consider reposting it for the new version as well? It's exactly the same thing, just packaged differently - two books in one, different cover and title. :)

The first web serial post for Gift of Light can be found here:

If someone volunteers but would prefer not to post a review because they didn't like the story and only read a handful of pages, no sweat! Just let me know.

I'd be willing to do review swaps if the above would also apply to myself. To me, an ebook is much easier to read than a web serial, though - in situations where I have time to read (usually while commuting), I usually don't have an internet connection.

If you're interested, feel free to post here or email me directly at anathemaserial[at]

Anathema, a web serial about the effect superpowers would have on our world.

    I can do it. I can't promise to get to it immediately, since I am trying to work on some ebook projects right now as well, but I did like Anathema, so I'd be willing to give it a whirl. I should be able to knock it out quick once I get started.

    Couple questions:

    1) Gift of Light is completed on Amazon, but you're also releasing it as a free serial? Or is the Amazon book just part 1?

    2) I did manage to read Anathema just before you pulled it, but I have not read the Transition/Superluminary versions. I did do a review of Anathema the web serial version here on WFG. If you want, I can crosspost that review to your Superluminary entry, unless you feel the story is significantly different enough that you feel the review might not reflect accurately on Superluminary. (Due to Amazon's new restrictions, it will have to be under a different name to my author account, which I can't review from, but I'm guessing that's not a big deal.)

    3) For Gift of Light, I can do the completed version, I guess mobi format would work.

    4) I would appreciate a review swap, if you could do Graven. Review for here/Amazon, and I'll do the same for Gift of Light. It is a fairly quick to read, completed web novel that works out to the size of a standard book, so hopefully it should be easy to get through.

    Cool, thank you! <3

    Teh answers:

    1) Gift of Light is a stand-alone spin-off sharing Anathema's setting, but with different characters. It's only about 83K words long and its own contained mini-story, though now that I think about it, it kind of calls for a sequel... or I might include the MC in a new (ebook) version of Anathema.

    2) Thanks for offering! I'll think about it (I think there are some differences, not huge ones but some and I don't remember everything right now) and get back to you through email. Cool? :D

    3) Mobi it is. I'll send you an email on the weekend, Friday or Saturday.

    4) I have some time to get started on a web serial this weekend. It might take several weekends to complete, though, unless I figure out how to get a mobile connection on my tablet that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. You'd think that Switzerland offers free wifi while commuting, but... nope. :/

    Sounds good!

    Yeah, being wi-fi dependent sucks. I'll just e-mail you a copy of the Graven mobi.
