This weekend while I was attending the Creatures, Crimes & Creativity conference in Columbia, MD, I used my down time to indulge in a bit of creative photography.
I started off doing this on one of my
coffee espresso breaks! 🙂
Well, last week I promised to produce a simple guide on writing a book review. And I’m as good as my word. 🙂
I should know a little something about writing book reviews. I had my own book review blog for around four or five years, way back when. And I also wrote reviews for Mystery Scene Magazine for a time. You can click here to read them.
Ever since our fantastic trip to Italy, we’ve been hard-core espresso fans. So, rather than visit a coffee shop every day, we make espresso at home.
We started off with a manual espresso maker, which required physically packing the puck with ground coffee. Now, I can probably manage to do this, but having dystonia makes it hard to grasp things with my left hand. So, it was
kind of relief to me easier for both of us when we upgraded to the Saeco Aroma machine.
I was looking around at books on Amazon the other day and was alarmed to see that someone was actually selling a book about how to write book reviews! For $0.99!
Well, I really had to wonder about that one. Seriously, people who read books are usually pretty good with words. So, the idea of selling a book that tells you how to write a book review seemed … odd to say the least. Not to mention charging nearly $1.00 for the advice.
So, here’s what I propose. I’ll write you a book on how to write book reviews. In fact, I just started it today!
