You won't die if you read a bad book!
A friend of mine is a rather well known thriller writer, but
he still gets an occasional bad review. He also has a sense of humor. Here is a
review he sent to me:
I normally read Regency Romance novels, and had never
read a thriller until I picked up (author’s name) newest novel. It stinks! How
anyone could write such drivel is beyond me. I have always been a fan of
Michael Jackson, and I thought his Thriller Album was about as good as it gets.
This awful novel was nothing like that. It told the story of a family that was
murdered in their home. The woman’s son was a NYPD detective and he returned
home for the funeral and decided to stay and try to solve the crime. (Picture
that actually happening!) I don’t like guns, but it seemed that in every
chapter he had a gun in someone’s face. In the final scene, he chased the
suspect along a public highway and caused him to have a wreck. There were four
five-star reviews, which have to be faked. No one in their right mind would
enjoy reading a book where so many bad things happen. A one star review from me,
and he is lucky to get that. I want my money back!
To those of you who are visiting my website for the first time, welcome, and for those who are returning, it is good to have you back. I am currently finishing the second novel in the Sheriff Daniel Barrett series, and will have it on Amazon Kindle soon. I have two other series that you might like to read. One is the Abraham’s Bones series about terrorism in the Middle East, and the other is the Renegade series, an old-fashioned story of the old west. You can visit my website by clicking here. I hope you have time to read through the description of my novels while you are here.
