Welcome to Lo Potter Writes!

If you stumbled here you are likely looking for Lo Potter’s writing or their book reviews. You might also be interested in some of the other features, such as author resources and bizarre little experiments or anecdotes. You’re in the right place.

For writing reviews, here is the process:

I read new, emerging, and indie authors’ works and (optionally) live tweet my reactions up until I detect major spoilers. At that point I cut off the live tweet review.

After the live tweet review (or after reading the book if there was no live tweet review) I write a long form review. These reviews get posted on platforms such as GoodReads and Amazon. I am happy post these in additional locations upon request. Authors are welcome to use anything I say about the book in marketing materials.

If an author prefers me to not live tweet my reactions, that’s okay! This is all about giving these authors love, support, and constructive criticism. I encourage authors to share this opinion with me.

If you want honest and mindful book reviews that aren’t hypercritical over stupid stuff, this is the place for you as either the reader or the author 🙂 That said, if an author would like an additional set of eyes on interrupting errors for future editions, I am happy to accommodate and provide this feedback directly. I try to only mention grammar issues if they interrupt the reading experience.

Other writings you will see are personal updates, publication announcements, and announcements with links if others review my work as well.

It has been such a pleasure emailing back and forth with this incredible author and learning from her […]
