I’ve seen it talked about but hadn’t encountered the problem in such close proximity until recently. Authors flooding the market with work that isn’t ready to be sold. There are sites that can be used for work that hasn’t been tested or, at the very least, proofread. If you’re dying for readers but you know your work’s not ready to earn you money, check those place out. Mingle, get to know your fellows. Find some folks who might not mind helping you clean that WIP up.
We’ve all spotted a typo here and there before—even in traditionally published work. Because, let’s face it, even the best at their job is probably going to miss something from time to time. We’re human. We make mistakes. It happens.
But when an author is flooding the market with work that is so riddled with errors that you literally can’t get through one tiny…

Here it is, the 2nd installment in my quest of reviewing Stephen King's great book series, The Dark Tower. As with the first one, I've listened to this one on audiobook. Mostly while driving, but also while walking to and from work, and while working out. It's kind of the only way I get to... Continue Reading →
I've been doing book reviews for a while now. I thought I'd share some of what I've learned doing them. First of all, I do it because it's fun, because it's useful (every writer, when not writing, should probably be reading), and because it's helpful. You've probably heard "do unto others something-something?" If I can... Continue Reading →
Hey gang, I'm looking for beta readers and critique partners - people I can share my work with to get feedback, ideas, and critique. If you're also a writer who's looking for people who bounce your thoughts off of, and you're interested in crime thrillers, how about you drop me a line? Let's talk. email@example.com
I love Warcraft books. Not just because I love the Warcraft series, but because these books are to be the perfect idea of what a fantasy book should be. They flesh out what happens between takes of the MMORPG, World of Warcraft, yes, but they're also their own adventure on their own (obviously). The shattering... Continue Reading →
Let me make this clear - this is an excellent book. True British crime, is what this is. We follow Daniel Dayton, younger brother of Scott, and son of Ed, head of the Dayton crime empire. Daniel has since left that life behind, wanting no part of it, but external forces and threats to the... Continue Reading →
This is another bonus review. One I've made time for on my own, between takes, and I offer it here, for you to enjoy. It's about time, isn't it? I claim to be a fan of Stephen King's work--of all of his work, yet I've never read a single one of his books. I didn't... Continue Reading →
Minor spoiler warning - very minor. This is a fantasy novel where we follow Prince Snarmis Sigmus of Psykoria, from being a young, gentle prince, to becoming a battle-hardened warrior, when monsters suddenly begin attacking the realm of Psykoria. I'll start with admitting I thought this book was a bit slow. It's until after reading... Continue Reading →
