First Things First
Let's take a look at Angelica's review of "Jack and The Magical Beanstalk" by author Pablo Michaels.
"This book has the feel of a fairy tale. There are many segments that could have come straight out of a big picture book my daughter reads. The rest is definitely not for children, but fantastic in its own way. My only complaint comes with the ending. Sam doesn't seem to really have a complete story. I would have liked him to have more closure. I would definitely recommend this book to any fan of m/m erotica."
What is Our Purpose For us to communicate with each other and help each other to understand the power of the review!
In general, these segments are to help not only authors understand a few things about the reviews they may get, but it is also for the people who leave the book reviews as well.
Reviews are a crucial element for any book. Reviews help not only the person considering the purchase of a book but they help the author understand how their book is interpreted by a reader.
We are going to ask the reviewer, Angelica Dawson, these questions today.

- Do you post reviews for all the books you read?
- What happens before you sit down to read a book for a review?
- Do you have a special place where you like to read? Do you need complete silence?
- How many times do you read a book before you actually write the review?
- When posting a review, which sales channels do you typically post to? Why?
- Have you ever had one of your reviews removed from a sales channel?
- How do you think the digital age has impacted literature as a whole?
