As an author, there is nothing more encouraging than receiving a rave review for one of your books.

But, reviewers must maintain credibility. And that is my topic today.

I am an avid reader. I love nothing more than to sink my teeth into a good story. And, I never hesitate to leave a review once I finish.

However, what happens when a reader picks up a book that leaves him lacking? Does that reviewer leave a false review to make the author feel better or tell the truth?

I think the answer to that should be crystal clear. First of all, you are doing that author no favors by saying the book is better than it was. An honest but KIND review can help the author grow and get better at his craft.

We never stretch or reach for more, when we think we already have it. 

So, I…

“i’m a reflection of the community.” tupac shakur

I didn't have my glasses on....

amidst the more than a million people without power days

our local library

has been opening at 6am

and closing late

acting without anyone asking

as an ad hoc community center

in order to offer

a safe and welcoming haven to all

full of

electricity and books and computers and games and story times

a friend to all ages

stay as long as you like

take as much as you need

on a morning visit

during my current nomadic existence

i sat with 2 high schoolers

an old couple

college roommates

a gaggle of 3 year olds

and a family

all here for the same reasons

a bit of respite

a cup of coffee

a bite to eat

a wealth of good company

a comfortable chair

and

an awful lot of warmth.

Dear President (again)

📄📞👍

(Update):

Dear President Donald Trump,

 

I hear you need a new Nation Security Adviser — oh I meant Attorney General! You’re in luck! I would be a great Attorney General.

 

Actually, I really don’t know much about what Attorney General (much less Nation Security Adviser) does. I was a copywriter in advertising. But like you, I watch TV news and regular shows. I didn’t watch The Apprentice (sorry). However, I’ve never gotten fired from my real job, so that’s a plus don’t you think?

 

I didn’t vote for you, but unlike Michael Flynn and Jeff Sessions, I’ve never lied. Well, I once stole a candy bar when I was 9 years old. But someone saw what I did (it was my Dad) so I had to go back to the store and tell the manager what I did. She was mad at me, but she just warned me to never do it again. Thankfully, I’ve learned my lesson!

 

Anyway, let me know when I can start the job. Thanks!

 

Sincerely,

Maureen Twomey
