LOL! Well, everyone has his/her own opinion about books and authors. There are so many good books out there it's easy to find those that we enjoy. I do agree you need a box of tissues to read a Sparks book. Personally, I prefer books for teens and children. Guess I've never grown up.
Awesome. I checked out her site and that sounds like exactly what I'm needing. Every blog, article, video and site I found on my hunt for advise said something about editing and it makes perfect sense. Later I found that reviewers love to bash a book on technicalities. I understand why, especially if it's really bad, but at the same time I think web content is changing that. I think people will take less "production" value in order to get more of exactly what they're looking for .... real value. I think that is what has made youtube so huge. I can't stand to watch TV but I spend lots of time on youtube.
Anyway, thanks for the tip and I will stay in touch.
I understand what you mean about it being your worst .... that sounded wrong ..... but what I mean is, I have thought the same thing about my own writing. With any luck I'll always grow and my second book seems to just be flowing. I hope that's a good sign. Who are you using to do the editing? That is one of my main goals for the next book.
Thanks for the email. You asked if we have any books in common. The only one I see is The Holy Bible. I read mostly books for children and teens. I did just finish one for an author's tour. Shadows of Kings by Jack Whitsel is good if you like fantasy and knights and battles. I'll be reading The Nameless Prince by Dominique Domingo next month for his tour. I also like James Patterson and Nicholas Sparks.
