Wow, FlaxFlower reviews has completed 10 years — it’s hard to believe!
At the start I thought I’d give it a go for a year and see how it went. At that time, 2014,
I was prompted by the lack of places NZ authors could get reviews of their books. Especially indie authors who are seldom accepted for the few main outlets
such as The Listener and Radio NZ.
Sadly, the situation hasn’t improved a lot.
On the bright side, over those 10 years FlaxFlower has published reviews of
447 books, all written by Kiwi authors.
I’ve been thinking ten years might seem a good place to call a halt,
but since the problem still exists, and while there are quality and valued reviewers
willing to give their time, I’ll carry on.
Very best wishes for the coming year, with lots of good reading!
