Homes For Bad Credit Austin Homes For Bad Credit Austin


I really need to stop reading reader reviews.  A series of really positive reviews had sort of lulled me into a false sense of security.  And then, when my guard was down, someone wrote a negative review of Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover and gave it a one star rating.  It felt like someone had made a fist and just punched me in the gut.  I lived much of that book; it is my story.

Now I will be the first to admit that I am not a professionally trained writer and I make mistakes.  I’m sure there are things that the editors and I missed – that just happens.  There are probably ways I could have plotted things differently, but I chose to follow the story mostly as it happened and mostly in sequence.  I did shuffle some events around to make them fit in more smoothly. I welcome comments, even negative ones, if they come with some detail about what the reader disliked and why.  I’m delighted to find problems so that I can fix them in future writing efforts.

Maybe someday I’ll have worked up enough strength to go back and read what the reviewer wrote in his review that he published online, but it will not be today.

    I am confused. Are your books part of the southern comfort series? Also when I expect your next book? I enjoy reading this series. Remind me of myself growing up.

    Hello Robbie, I just want to say THANK YOU for the well-written story of Mark and Bill. I just finished the second book… and can’t wait till start the third. I love the ending of the second book. I read, re-read, and re-read… it touched my heart and reflected my own relationship. I now even plans to ask my partner to go out for a date with me. And thank you for writing these: You can’t change the past. I can’t change the past. It was. it’s gone. What you need to focus on is not what’s behind you, but what’s in front of you. I wish you could continue to write more about Mark and Bill… the forth, fifth ….
