4_4 GB alt. Bio PictureIt’s a pleasure to be a guest on Long and Short Reviews.
Writing novels is so rewarding. To have the opportunity to share your inner feelings with potentially millions of people is mind blowing. It is not a responsibility to be taken lightly. Every word needs to be shaped and polished like a precious gem.
All an author can ask of a reviewer, then,  is for them to realize that anyone committed to “putting it out there”, deserves to be respected for their efforts even when what they have to say falls short of the reviewers expectations.
You’re doing a wonderful job on this site. Keep on helping readers with your insightful reviews.
