Smashwords book reviews by Cyn Bagley

  • Be the Monkey - Ebooks and Self-Publishing: A Dialog Between Authors Barry Eisler and Joe Konrath on April 25, 2011
    star star star star star
    I have been a faithful consumer of Konrath's blog "A Newbies Guide to Publishing" for a few years. So when I had a chance to read some more advice by Konrath, I grabbed the opportunity. This ebook contains the best advice yet for new, struggling, and even established writers, which is self-pub on digital publishers. These are the same arguments that finally convinced me to look for "Smashwords" (I don't have the time to convince the gateway keepers due to my illness, I don't have the temperament to cater to an editor, and the books I liked have taken a long time to get to the books stores.) I supported people like LKH and Simon Greene long before they became popular. So even though there seemed to be beer involved with writing this interview, it was very concise and clear. It made my arguments and added a few more, which I have been spouting off to my husband. And not only is this ebook full of personal knowledge from successful authors, it is also a fun read.
  • From Negril, With Love on April 28, 2011
    star star star star
    This short story touched upon women's little sadnesses: marriage, sex, birth, death, and divorce. It explores how these disappointments can hurt a relationship. But, even at the end, there is hope that a newly singled woman can find love. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because it is a little rough in places. However, I would read this story again more slowly. There is a lot of truth here.
  • Daddy, Then on April 28, 2011
    star star star star star
    This poem is so powerful. When the poem starts with a little girl holding her daddy's hand, I had a flashback to my childhood when I went every where with my daddy. I also used to sit on the toilet and watch my dad shave his face. It was an honor and a privilege to watch this routine. These following words: An aging rift remains undefined unlike muscular arms Catching your horse shit from reluctant distance. --hit me pretty hard. I am also watching my father age. We haven't talked in almost two decades. And as I see him gray and age, he seems to be farther away from me spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. And the last stanzas summed up the entire poem. Bye daddy.
