This my dear author friends is a letter from one of my favorite reviewers. I visit his blog frequently. Though I don’t read the books he reviews, his ‘reviews’ always draw me in. So many times we (authors) are left feeling empty after a reader shreds our work and then dismisses our favorable reviews as dribble. So many times we take it personally.

Well Big Al gave a response to us that clearly illustrates why readers are very much so entitled to their reviews and why we authors need to put on our big girl panties and endure.

So here’s my idea. Are you good with grammar? Do you have some free time on your hand? Would you like to beta read the free stories The Divas Pen? If you are interested drop me a line. I’d love to work with you. … Read the rest
