Smashwords book reviews by Janice Daugharty

  • Paths on Aug. 14, 2010

    "Paths," by Roy Pace is beautifully written and full of meaning. Every word has been weighed by Pace before placing them for best effect. But what I loved most was living inside this story--living inside as a kid, before fear of the world took hold. What a magical childhood! Janice Daugharty
  • My Operation on Sep. 20, 2010

    Ernest, thank you for reviewing my essay, "Chelsea." I just read your essay, "The Operation," and really like the writing and the honest insight. I hope your surgery went well; had something similar years back. Janice Daugharty
  • My Operation: Part 2 on Oct. 15, 2010

    I will read almost anything on almost any topic as long as the writing is fresh and exact--as in this piece by Ernie Winchester. If I were an editor or publisher I would hit the delete key as soon as I encountered the first cliche--Ernie doesn't have any. After a similar operation, I referred to my zipper right off as a scar. Huh uh! Ernie rightly describes his fresh cut as a "wound." What a fine writer! Janice Daugharty
