I wanted to update you all on my new rating system. I have been using a 5-star scale, and I will continue to use this scale, but here are the new definitions for each star review just so you are aware of what you can expect:
- 1 Star = Poorly Written
- 2 Star = Lacking A Proper Plot/Cast/Setting
- 3 Stars = A Good Story, But Could Use Improvement/Wasn’t For Me
- 4 Stars = A Great Story with Minor Flaws
- 5 Stars = An Outstanding Story, No Improvements Needed
I hope this will clear up reviews a bit and help you understand my reviews better! I am a tough reviewer, but all of my reviews are intended to help authors grow and tell readers what they should expect. Let’s make this new year great!
Thank you for your continued support!
