Along with the cover artist, book reviewers are folks who authors – and readers – simply can’t do without. They are the ones who take it on the chin by reading something which might be senseless, bordering on the illiterate, confusing, or just downright lousy. Regardless, they plow through it, so the author can get more publicity, and the reader can tell which way to run.
These are some of the friends who I’ve been fortunate to make on Goodreads. The ones that take that hit, and furnish us with the Review.
