Ah, to be young again. I remember when I was a twenty-something aspiring writer, corresponding with Lincoln Child about RELIQUARY, the sequel to RELIC. I didn't like the book, and let Lincoln know my thoughts. I look back on that now with chagrin -- I was so full of myself even though I had yet to have anything published. I was going to light up the world with mah awesome words!

Thankfully, we didn't have Amazon reviews back then. You know, things that would stay around for decades, and always be associated with my name? Now that I do writing for a living, and face serious m-fing deadlines, I understand far better the demans on Lincoln and other pro authors.

Ought to be a law

Dead-drunk typing? This needs to be brought to the attention of the legislature. Childrens' lives are at stake.

This is the best review ever! I am so very, very jealous.

I had to laugh at that review, but it shows that the Siglerverse

Is not for everyone. The reviewer chose to attack Scott's choice in the way he presented the novel, with "cussing" with some "aside comments as if he were reading the story and commenting to the reader outside of the traditional format. Well I say great,"kiddies". That's part of the fun Sigler presentation. *I am the Rear Admiral but Sigler gives the Orders*

Funny

I'm an aspiring author as well, and I gotta shake my head. So I guess we now have to worry about where the inflection comes when someone says, "Bullshit." Because, apparently, if it's not where the reader would put it were he the author, it's in the wrong spot. If someone gave me a one star review because I didn't cuss right, I'd tell him to suck my....(you fill it in, because I don't want to get it wrong)

Everyone is entitled to their opinion....

A short analysis of the worth of JCStreetSoldier's opinion:

Total Amazon "Helpful Votes" 4 of 30  (Apparently, few find him helpful)

Gave a 3 star review to "Twilight"  (Who would even admit to picking up a book about sparkly Vampires?)

Pretty much, yeah.

the general populous has lost it's testicles and the mildest of infractions causes one to go on a Crusade these days.
In closing, fuck most everyone.

Hmmm....

Does anyone think it's HUTCHINSSSSSSSS? Cause he didn't even give the book a chance

Too bad really. 

I liked the cussing. Plus, I really enjoy it when the author is "talking" to his readers. It personalizes it.

I'll say

I have a shirt that says  " And Buffy staked Edward. The end." that pretty much sums it up for me. Yes, I wore the shirt to all the premiers of the films. I like the thumbs up I got from the boytoys dragged along to witness the debacle.Laughing
