A portmanteau, in linguistics, is the merging of two words.
Today, I felt the need to coin a portmanteau. I took ‘Emily’ and ‘Amazon’ and made ‘Emazon’.
Probably not the best portmanteau ever, but very possibly the most important for me.
Today, I received four Emazon reviews for The Power of Seven. Four people have, independently, told me what they think of the book. So, for the first time ever, I bring you Emazon reviews:
‘To say I enjoy this book would be an understatement’
‘Your new book is amazing, and really touched my heart’
‘I think this is your best book yet’
‘I love it’
I received an email the other day that shows Emazon still needs Amazon;
‘I have just ordered The Power of Seven from Amazon. It will be lovely to be immersed in your warm, approachable and welcoming writing style once again.’
I said at the launch event for Power of Seven; “If you’d like to leave a review on Amazon, please do. If you wouldn’t, then don’t.” No pressure.
I can now say the same about Emazon reviews.
Reviews are lovely to receive, whatever feedback they give. Emazon or Amazon.
In fact, they’re Brilltastic!
