iUniverse talks with the authors of The Legend of Anne Southern 2

In the first part of this series of iUniverse blog posts from award winning author J. Rivers Hodge, we learnt about both his writing inspiration and the process of getting to the finished manuscript stage. Now in Part 2:
iUniverse asks how your novel has been received?

“We’d like to have more sales, but who doesn’t? The feedback from readers has been terrific. Everyone has given us excellent marks, not only for the story, but also the “look” of the book. More than one reader has noted how professional it appears, and more than one has complimented us on the content and color of the cover. That credit goes to iUniverse.

Also, The Legend of Anne Southern has won the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award for Regional Fiction and has recently been selected as a finalist for the Royal Palm Literary Award presented by the Florida Writers Association.
