A page for book reviews and author chat. Whatever for? I write all day long and I read a lot, but reviewing – whether on amazon or on Goodreads or anywhere else – makes me uncomfortable. I suppose I come at it from the writer’s side, where even a good review can hurt like hell and make you question your ability to string words together and tell a story.
But I owe the people who suggest and recommend books to me many hours of enjoyment, so I’ve decided to keep track of the books I enjoyed each month, with maybe a line ore two to say what I enjoyed the most. And I’ll talk to authors on paper, not just on Twitter. Because some of the advice that’s helped me… may also help somebody else.
