Following my previous post about reviews, I thought I would share a few with you, which you can read below....Enjoy!

"I would not be surprised to see this book be turned into a movie some day. If it does, I'll be one of the first in line to watch it"

"Well written book that is a definite page turner, couldnt put this down, just had to know what happens next."

"This storyline would make a great movie, would definitely watch it, so intense!"

"Won't ruin the suspense, but suffice it to say, it will bring to mind some scenes from Midnight Express."

"Have always been fascinated by true crime & true stories & this true story was no exception."

"If you like True Crime you will love this. I felt every emotion possible reliving the nightmare with David.

"Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Paced brilliantly - Started lounging in armchair, ended up on edge of my seat!"

"Heart pounded as I followed the author through his harrowing ordeal with no apparent way out. A must read."

"The author does not ask that the reader feel sorry for him. He is just telling it like it was."

"Your dialogue is very convincing and I could feel the sun and smell the sun-tan lotion!"

"I thought you wrote honestly and without self-pity, which makes it all the more authentic."

"I liked this a lot. It's got style, wit and bags of energy. The writing is clear and sharp."

"WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME is the first book written by David Perlmutter and what a fantastic story he has to tell."

"ANYONE who likes a great read will enjoy this one...the girls in the book club can't put it down, my 80 year old dad loved it."

My views on Reviews!

I know we're nearly into the third week of 2013, but as this is my first post for a long time I'd like to start off by wishing you a Happy New Year and hope this year is the one for us all.

This week on Amazon UK I received my 89th, 90th, 91st, 92nd and 93rd reviews respectivily, which I'm obviously really happy about as they were either 4 or 5 stars. As I think we all agree, reviews for our books are so important to us; they're important for any item on Amazon. Heck, when searching for gifts, we all look at the reviews, don't we?  Reviews make people curious and interested... they suck people in. The more reviews you have, the more likely someone is to click the 'buy' button.

When I see that I have a new review, I'm happy. But I also have a combination of nervousness and excited anticipation as to whether its going to be a positive or negative one. Having said that, I learned a long time ago that all reviews are positive and that is the beauty of people having their own personal opinion.

As of today, in the UK my book has received 93 reviews with 52 five stars and 15 one stars. In the US, 37 reviews - 22 of which are five stars and NO 1 stars. In Spain I have just one, but its a 5 star.

That is it for my first post of 2013, but of course not my last, you unlucky followers! I just wanted to share my news with you all.

Whilst you're here, why not just click the link. It'll take you to my book in which ever country you are living! 

Finally, I would like to hear your views on reviews, so please comment if you wish!

Look forward to hearing from you.
