Thank you Sue Steinberg

This evening I was so excited to check in on how A Notable Occupation was doing on Amazon and discovered that someone had posted a review of it. Not only was there a review, but it was a 5-star review.

This book was a wonderful story told against the backdrop of the Revolutionary War. It gives a historical account of what this period in time was like for a small group of Jews in two small corners of the world. Add to that a touch of espionage, battle,not to mention love and I could not put it down. There were several moments that would have made for a "happily ever after" ending, but I am so glad the author takes us further on this families journey. I highly recommend this book.

Sue Steinberg, whoever you are, thank you so much for taking the time to read and review A Notable Occupation. An author never knows when putting a book out if anyone is going to like it. Sure, our friends, family, and editors tell us it's good. And though we love how they support us, there is always that seed of doubt. Did they say that to be nice/avoid a confrontation/get paid?

I'm sure there will be readers who don't like the novel and that's fine. Our variety in tastes is what drives such a vast variety of writing styles and topics. That said, I'm so happy YOU liked A Notable Occupation and that you took the time to tell others in such a public way. For the self-published author, reviews from people like you are like manna from heaven.

Thank you, Sue Steinberg!
