Thinking Outside the Box But Within the Big Picture

As a member of the Knoxville Writers Guild, and in particular of the Guild’s Sci-Fi/Fantasy Writers’ Group, I recently joined in on a writing experiment that was downright fun.

No book reviews. That is fine.

Authors, it is a struggle for some writers to get honest reviews. My stories sell and are downloaded without no or few reviews. There are all kinds of reasons for that.
