Scavenger Hunt has a 3 star rating on Good Reads! Some nice person took the time to head over there and assign a few stars to my work! I am amazingly grateful!
I know it takes a stupid amount of effort to review/comment/whatever. It’s kind of like going to a chain restaurant and receiving a feedback form. You mean to fill it in, you definitely intend to let the guys know about your experience with the servers and sausages and cut-price tequila (okay, you guessed it, classy joints aren’t my natural habitat). You really do mean to go online and let them know that you loved the tequila, adored the server but weren’t keen on the sausage. Then the kids get sick, the significant other has to get a coat hanger removed from their leaking cranial orifice. The dog passes her driving test. Things take over and the feedback goes to the bottom of the list.
So, if you read around here and you clicked that star on Good Reads, thanks. I love you for it!
From here, 3 is an okay score, too. It’s not the top, but it’s not the worst. It’s a solid average, right there in the middle and that’s okay. I’d like to be better than okay though.
I’d like to write stuff that people think is good, that they enjoy. I love putting down words and I’d really like for whomever reads my work to think to themselves ‘yeah, this Grimaldi guy is all right, he’s good. I spent a little money and it paid off, I had fun reading this book’. To do that, I’ll need to know where I went wrong, where in Mona’s tale I slipped from ‘yeah, I like this’ to ‘okay, yeah, okay’.
If you pushed those stars on Good Reads, and you hang around here, please feel free to drop me a line, let me know what didn’t fly. Like I said, I’d like to be better.
Oh, and if you didn’t leave the Good Reads stars but you’d still like to tell me what you think was less than awesome, let me know. I’ve always got an ear for you.
