Well, visitors are up and submissions are up in the wake of POD-DY MOUTHS demise by her own hand. And we've got no intention of going anywhere anytime soon. Heck, this is fun!
Submissions will not be closing anytime soon...I only mention that because my friend POD CRITIC is closing down submissions when the IRS does.
We've got more book reviews coming soon and a few interviews are on the docket with some of our favorite authors. Who knows, you and your book might be the next one we ask. We are ever on the search for well done novels and great stories. If you find your book doesn't receive a great review, then by all means take it constructively. This is the manner in which all reviews on our site are meant to be received. We want you the author to become better at your craft, not discouraged.
Writing a novel is a tremendous undertaking which requires patience, talent and endurance. To become a great writer takes these elements and more...a bit of being in the right place at the right time never hurt anyone in this industry!
So, do the best you possibly can. Invest time and any necessary expense to produce the best book you can; particularly I'm addressing self publishers and small press editor/owners. You must give you or your contracted authors the best possible chances for success. It's a jungle out there...so, welcome to the jungle!
