I try not to reference my Authoring Blog on here more than once a week. But I need some help and I still have more followers here on Not-Dot than on ‘The Archive’. On my other blog I’ve been reviewing and critiquing a great steampunk anthology that was published recently and getting a lot of comments and feedback from the editor and authors, which is awesome. One of my comments is even on the publisher’s book page! Go me!
The thing is, I think that this anthology deserves more attention and frankly, its too much pressure to be one of the few critical reviewers of these stories on the Blogosphere. And by ‘critical reviewer’ I mean unsolicited, unprofessional, unofficial nitpicker. I’m starting to feel bad for saying negative things. I’m just one opinion and I’m critical by nature and I don’t want my opinions to be the only ones potential readers have to go on. I don’t want to quit critiquing the piece because I really enjoyed it and I’m learning a lot from the strengths and weaknesses of diverse the authors.
So, please go get Mechanized Masterpieces, read it and write up what you think, don’t leave me stranded out here!
