Barsetshire Diary Reviews.


I admit I’m not very good at the promotion of my books also at checking reviews. Today I was reminded that a review of my first book is on most of the Amazon sites and in an effort to promote it I add a link to not just the review in question but to all of them. Like many authors I tended to think that once the book was written, my responsibility is over. Not so, they’re like little babies that need nurturing and like proud parents we’re expected to delve into our pockets for photographs to show at any opportunity.

My Barsetshire Diary is a gentle romp through the vagaries of life in a small village where one might be asked to officiate at the jam making competition at the local village fete. It may just be the place where one competitor is determined to win whatever the cost. You’ll see whether it’s still possible to get a bargain at the car boot sale.You’ll meet Lord David, Lady Julia and their daughter as well as Oscar the alarm cat. Will Lord David’s credit card ever be his?

Maybe if you try the first book you may end up liking my humour and try for successive books. The second book, The Queen’s Envoy tells of Lord David sorting out the problems of Her Majesty’s Government all over the world. It’s unfortunate that he seems to encounter so many ladies who always seem such a mystery to him. Lady Julia however takes a very keen interest in those encounters.

    A touch of class from a very special Envoy to the Queen, our very own Lord David Prosser – his books on Amazon The Barsetshire Diaries and The Queen’s Envoy.. enjoy

  9. Happy to see you marketing a bit, David. Be sure to write some review quotes in the Editorial Reviews section on Author Central for those who can’t see the actual review. I noted in my “From the Author” section to scroll down for additional reviews because my U.S. reviews show up closer to the bottom under, let’s say, the UK reviews. Does that make sense?

    Best of luck!

    My Barsetshire Diary is mind blowing book as I went through Amazon review, ”The book is full of situational comedy, irony and great wit and most amusing characters.” gives perfect idea of the book and the way of your writng. Now I have followed you blog too. wish you all best and happy new year.

  11. N.i.c.e. covers. I am intrigued immediately. 🙂

  12. Great reviews. I think the reviews in appear in others but not the rest…I raised the issue with Amazon already and they were looking into it

    • Thanks Olga. I think the tendency for many people is to review in their own Amazon only so it would be good if Amazon agreed to share.

    If you’re looking for things I don’t do, like gentle humour and spot on vignettes of contemporary life, why not read something of David Prosser’s? I bet you’ll love it.
