This weekend I received a request to review an indie published book from the author. His name rang a bell, so I assumed I knew him from twitter or had read him before.
Yup. I had read him before. The same book, actually, two years ago. Clearly, record-keeping isn't his strong suit. But, that's no big deal. I figured I'd hit him with the URL to my original post, say something jokey in response, and call it a day.
But, I hated the book -- gave it 1 1/2 stars. My post on it was sketchy, because to really get into what I thought of the book, I said, "it'd just be mean."
So, yeah, I think this'll be one of those emails I forget to reply to...
