Remember back in school when the teacher would give you one of three grades on a test: 100%, 80%, or failing?
Yeah, me neither. But that’s exactly what we authors and readers are up against with the 5-star rating system common to Amazon, Goodreads, and elsewhere.

Check out the rave reviews for MALINAE, the award-winning cosmic horror novella from Josh Schlossberg (D&T Publishing, 2021)!
Reader reviews are one of the most fundamental ways we authors have of getting our books out into the world. Tragically, we have a harder time getting readers to write those reviews than we do convincing them to eat their own…
But, Josh, I hear you thinking, we’re not all mountain hermits like yourself with nothing better to do. You think it’s easy for us to come up with some fancy review?
First of all, mean. And second, who the heck’s talking about anything fancy?
Lovecraft eZine’s Pete Rawlik gave a solid review of MALINAE!
“There are relatively few books in which the elderly function as protagonists, and Schlossberg not only makes you care for the pair of them, but also makes their plight and actions in the face of a personal apocalypse feel perfectly appropriate and natural.
“[A]n incredible book about growing old with the one you love…well-crafted and fine enough to be placed in my collection of cosmic horror…”

Candace Nola with Uncomfortably Dark calls MALINAE, “a disturbing story that masterfully weaves a large helping of horror into an already terrifying take on aging and Alzheimer’s.”
