I was browsing, this morning, when I had the delightful experience of discovering that I had received three new reviews, on Goodreads, for the first three of my short stories in the Thief series. And here, I might sound somewhat critical, but I’m simply making an honest observation: Unlike some authors, I don’t ‘cherry pick’ only five star reviews. I can say with hand on heart that I am grateful when anybody takes the time to leave any kind of comment or review against one of my books! Whatever their verdict – from “it sucks” (not in those words, please) to “I love it” – I am happy. You see, I like to know that somebody has taken the trouble to deliver their verdict, good, bad or indifferent. I don’t expect to please everybody. If we all liked the same things, we might only have one book to read! Honesty is a very important trait, as far as I’m concerned.
All that said, here are the review links:
I would like to thank Magda for taking the time to comment. It is very much appreciated.
I am very close to finishing my new mild horror/supernatural/future fiction tale in the G1: The Guardians series! It will be my first novella. I say finishing, but of course, I’m talking about the writing part of it. The reading, editing, fixing and repairing are to come. Before anybody says anything, I don’t have the option of getting any help from an editor or such. Operating with a zero budget prohibits such things, unfortunately. I have to rely on myself to act as impartially, and accurately, as possible. It isn’t ideal, and I really would do things properly if I could afford it. I am not inclined to beg for freebie help in these arduous tasks. I’m also not interested in joining a ‘critique’ group, or similar. My experience with such groups, in the field of art, have not been happy, with too many members having their own agendas and with motives that are sometimes questionable. So I will continue as I must.
